have “Game Of Thrones” fans who not seen the eighth season in the spring of 2019 on Sky, but waiting for the free TV premiere on RTL TWO, so now also know notice: The Iron Throne no longer exists, Bran ( Isaac Hempstead Wright) is the new king, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) rules over the independent north and Arya (Maisie Williams) goes on a long trip.

Jon Snow (Kit Harington), whose real name Aegon Targaryen, it went the other hand, not so good: He was forced to the beloved by him, but also dreaded Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) to kill for the sake of the people of Westeros. The true mother of dragons devoted unsullied (Immaculate) captured him then. After a leap in time we see a Council in Dragonpit (dragon pit) days, which, inter alia, discusses the fate of Jon.

But Jon is about, thanked that he has stopped the tyrant Daenerys? No, the good Jon is banished to the night watch …

After the murder of Daenerys Jon Snow to atone

The new king Bran makes this decision as a compromise between the demands of unsullied (Execute) and the Stark sisters (Leave blank). Jon should live, but can not freely determine its fate. For the brothers of the Night’s Watch are bound to many promise never to start a family for example.

Jon should live, but can not freely determine its fate.

However, according to a pious service in a fortress on the wall it does not look as Jon rides in the last scene with the wildlings in the woods behind the wall where the snow begins to melt slowly.

The final scene: Closing the circle

In this scene a full circle in “Game Of Thrones”: If the large gate in the wall opened at the beginning of the very first episode, it now closes behind Jon Snow and his troops. And how this moment is staged, suggests that it is absolutely not a penalty for Jon that he had to return to the wall – what Bran a.k.a. The three-eyed raven probably knew very well:

Was the big gate in the wall opened at the beginning of the very first episode, it now closes behind Jon Snow and his troops.

Free from the burden of political decisions that will further hit the south, he can, who wanted to be king anyway never finally start a new life tv review. In the scene spirit of optimism. The always connected even with the north Jon seems to feel comfortable among the wildlings and after looking back, his gaze (final) forward. Under the melting snow flowers are visible, and the music takes on a lilting tone.

Everything suggests that Jon will start together with the wildlings a new life behind the wall, instead of stale at his post.

Jon commits treason against King Bran?

As said Bran should have probably anticipated this development. return the apparent punishment for Jon vigil was necessary as a compromise between “execution” and “release” to satisfy all parties.

And that Jon returns to the wall, does not necessarily mean that he is once again (or still) bound by the oath of Vigil – so Jon is neither a traitor nor perjurers.

And that Jon returns to the wall, does not necessarily mean that he is once again (or still) bound by the oath of Vigil – so Jon is neither a traitor nor perjurers.

For we must not forget that Jon has ever died to serve his oath, the vigil until his death and also to comply with all related rules, he has thus fulfilled. Now he leads his second life, and when he does not reign as Aegon Targaryen in King mouth or the vigil must be loyal, he is finally free.

These thoughts at the end of “Game Of Thrones” we have carried out in May 2019 already in an article for the premiere of “GoT” finals. On the occasion of the free TV premiere, we have this product now been revised and reissued.
