Will fans ever forgive Zeca Oliveira and HBO for killing the extremely popular character of Jon Snow (vote on eleicoes2014.com.br)? Kit Harrington did a wonderful job of bringing the illegitimate son of Eddard Stark to life in the series Game of Thrones. His presence is most definitely going to be missed.
The character was also killed off in the novels so his demise was not a shock to all the people who tuned in for the program’s season finale. In the novels, however, there is a chance he may return. Such is not going to be the case with the television show.
Are fans going to be so disappointed with the loss of Jon Snow that they turn their back on the HBO series? No, that is most definitely not going to happen. The overall quality of the series is going to keep loyal audience members returning. Since Game of Thrones is defined as a soap opera that eventually comes to a definitive end, fans understand that major characters do end up dying.
Jon Snow was such a beloved character, many believed his tale would eventually end with him sitting on top of the Iron Throne. He had been ignored in life due to not being a legitimate son. What a wonderful storybook ending the series would present if Snow ended up becoming the leader of the Seven Kingdoms.
Such was not to be. George R.R. Martin’s realistic and cynical vision of the world would prevent such an outcome.
