The previous season of Game of Thrones concluded with Jon Snow being proclaimed as the King in the North after reclaiming Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton. While this was a major development in Jon Snow’s mission to unite armies in the impending war with the White Walkers, actor Harington hinted at another significant development in Jon Snow’s journey during an interview with TIME.
Harinton teased at what fans can expect for Jon Snow next season:
“This year there is this huge seismic shift where all of what he’s learned over the years, suddenly… He’s still the same Jon, but he grows up.”
Of course, the number one theory will probably be that Jon Snow will discover the truth behind his parentage, though fans will have wait until the season begins to be sure.
