On “Game of Thrones” Season 6’s last Sunday episode, we saw Jon Snow was being brought back to life by Queen Melisandre. Discussing the aftereffects of that miracle, actor Kit Harington (Jon Snow) shares that the Lord Commander is not the same person anymore as death has changed him.
Most of us often speculate about the concept “life after death” that simply defines what happen to us after we die. However, Jon Snow is the one on the HBO’s popular fantasy drama, who become alive again from his corpse on the episode titled “Home.” Now fans must be wondering how new Jon Snow would be. Is he the same or there will be some visible changes in him? Perhaps this is the most talked about topics of discussion going into the season 6.
During a recent interview with EW , Harington expresses his own take on the miracle saying,
“At first, I was worried that he’ll wake up and he’s the same, back to normal, then there’s no point in that death. He needs to change. There’s a brilliant line when Melisandre asks: ‘What did you see?’ And he says: ‘Nothing, there was nothing at all.’ That cuts right to our deepest fear, that there’s nothing after death. And that’s the most important line in the whole season for me. Jon’s never been afraid of death, and that’s made him a strong and honorable person. He realizes something about his life now: He has to live it, because that’s all there is. He’s been over the line and there’s nothing there. And that changes him. It literally puts the fear of God into him. He’s seen oblivion and that’s got to change somebody in the most fundamental way there is. He doesn’t want to die ever again. But if he does, he doesn’t want to be brought back.”
This clearly indicates that post-resurrection Jon Snow will be a different person now. The character will probably be much more evolved in terms of humanity. After having a very close encounter with death, Snow might understand the true value of life.
Judging from Harington’s take on the character, it would sound like the stakes will be made all the higher – with Jon forced to be made more aware of his own mortality than ever before. Now the audience can expect that he may not seek for guidance of any one of the many Gods of Westeros in future “Game of Thrones” episodes, Screenrant reveals.
