And while many hoped that there may a way that former Lord Commander of the Night's Watch wasn’t really dead, actor Kit Harington has confirmed his departure from the show after five series.
He told Entertainment Weekly: "I had a sit-down with Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff], we did the Tony Soprano walk [letting an actor know they're being whacked.]. And they said, 'Look, you're gone, it's done',"
Kit added to The New York Daily News: “I hope it’s a real shock and a heartbreak, I really hope it is,”
“It’s like Joffrey’s death or the Red Wedding. It’s a scene that we want to have that kind of impact; I found it to be really disturbing to shoot.
“I had wanted it to be a beautiful death, a release. But they way it unfolded, it was a huge betrayal and a gruesome death. It was an abrupt and brutal finish with no absolutely no peace for Jon in the end.”
“He dies sad, understanding that the last person to stab him is Olly, his steward,” he added.
