The Game of Thrones season 5 finale was a bloody episodes with important characters falling like a pack of cards but what came to a shocking end when Jon Snow was betrayed by the people whom he trusted. Since the time Jon decided to help the wildlings, he had made lot of enemies at Castle Black and with Maestor Aemon dead and Samwell leaving for Oldtown, he hardly had any friends at Castle Black. In the last scene, Olly and other brothers of Night’s Watch betrayed Jon Snow and brutally stabbed him and left him to die. The episode ends with Jon lying in a pool of his own blood. Entertainment Weekly spoke with Kit Harington about the shocking twist and this is what he said:
This is my understanding of it. I had a sit-down with Dan and David, we did the Tony Soprano walk [letting an actor know they’re being whacked]. And they said, “Look, you’re gone, it’s done.” And as far as the salary thing goes, that angered me when that story came out. I don’t know where it came from, but it was inaccurate in many ways. It’s going to put questions into your head and into fans’ heads that things are not what they are. Quite honestly, I have never been told the future of things in this show, but this is the one time I have. They sat me down and said, “This is how it is.” If anything in the future is not like that, then I don’t know about it – it’s only in David and Dan and George’s heads. But I’ve been told I’m dead. I’m dead. I’m not coming back next season. So that’s all I can tell you, really.
