Game of Thrones: Jon Snow death scene script released

And you thought you were done having Jon Snow feels.

(Or, you didn’t, because, you, like us, think he’s not staying permanently dead)

Either way, this is an unexpected sucker punch. For the first time, HBO has made available the script for the last scene of the final episode of Season 5, titled “Mother’s Mercy” – an episode that, as you might recall, won the Emmy for outstanding writing for a drama series.

It’s mostly dialogue, but there’s still enough description to make this informative, and, if possible, even more heartbreaking. Because Jon is dead. And okay, he might not be staying dead, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Night Watch betrayed it’s Commander in the most devastating way.

Read them and weep. Or, process your emotions any way you need to. We’ll be here.

Why now, HBO? Why now? Making us cry about Jon (and we sort of are) won’t make us forget about the subtle clues spread through the books/series about his possible reappearance. No, the North remembers, and so do we.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on Sunday, April 24th, on HBO.

  1. I am weeping in rage! This scene crushed me in all the feels and when Olly stabs him, I’m done. Can you mourn and rage? I wonder if this feeling is anguish?

    1. Yes, you CAN mourn and rage. I am. See, this just reinforces the fact that he can’t stay dead. HE HAS TO COME BACK AND GET HIS REVENGE. Or, like, at least walk out of there and leave them to be overrun by White Walkers while he goes to take back Winterfell. YES.

      1. My #1 wish for next season, Jon resurrected and storming Winterfell and kicking Bolten ass while the Night’s Watch sweats as the White Walkers close in and then a dragon swoops in and sets everything on fire. I dunno… I might be a little bitter too.
