‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington weighs in on that OTHER large Jon Snow theory
But now that the show — and HBO’s disreputable infographic — have reliable that Jon Snow is in fact a son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, we’ve got a new conjecture to fixate on. Is Jon Snow “the king that was promised” that everybody keeps banging on about?
First, some context:
The uncover and George R.R. Martin’s books have done a large understanding about a anticipation concerning a mythological favourite famous as Azor Ahai, who once degraded a dim that had lonesome a universe with a assistance of his fiery sword, Lightbringer.
According to a supporters of R’hllor (including Melisandre and Thoros of Myr), Azor Ahai will someday be reborn as “the king who was promised,” to once again quarrel a dim with his blazing sword. In this case, we’re guessing “the darkness” translates to a White Walkers, who are melancholy to thrust a universe into an almighty winter, that would admittedly be flattering dark.
“There will come a day after a prolonged summer when a stars drain and the cold exhale of dim falls complicated on a world. In this dismay hour a soldier shall pull from a glow a blazing sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, a Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and a dim shall rush before him.”
“When a red star bleeds and a dim gathers, Azor Ahai shall be innate again amidst fume and salt to arise dragons out of stone.”
You might remember that Melisandre creatively believed that Stannis Baratheon was a king who was promised, that didn’t work out so well for anyone concerned (especially Stannis’ bad daughter, Shireen).
Once Stannis kicked a bucket, a Red Priestess shifted her devotion to Jon — who, as a Season 6 culmination revealed, was innate amidst fume (thanks to a conflict during a Tower of Joy), and salt (his failing mother’s tears). The draining star could be a anxiety to Arthur Dayne’s sword, named Dawn, that was allegedly “forged from a heart of a depressed star.” The blade was lonesome in blood from a conflict and left conspicuously during a finish of Lyanna’s bed in a finale.
In a books, Martin even gives a (perhaps too obvious) thought about Jon’s apparent destiny, when Melisandre remarks, “I urge for a glance of Azor Ahai, and R’hllor shows me only Snow.”
Other Red Priestesses in Volantis, along with Maester Aemon, are assured that Daenerys is a prophesied favourite — given she literally woke dragons out of mill — though during this point, there are adequate clues to support both interpretations.
Either way, submissive Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is good wakeful of a conjecture once again surrounding his angsty character, and, in short, he DGAF.
When a Huffington Post asked Harington to residence a gossip that Jon could be a reincarnation of Azor Ahai, he played coy, as usual: “I consider we have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything some-more about Jon.”
But he didn’t undisguised boot a idea, instead charity his take on what Jon would consider about presumably being a prophesied savior.
“I consider Jon would hatred a tenure ‘The Prince That Was Promised.’ If someone incited to him and said, ‘You’re The Prince That Was Promised,’ he only wouldn’t compensate most attention,” Harington told HuffPost. “That’s what we adore about him, so we don’t unequivocally caring about it either. You know, we consider that’s what’s good about him. He’s got really small ego on him.”
Yeah, yeah, we know Jon’s super common — though can he only group adult with Dany and save a world, already? They’ve only got 13 episodes left to do it in.
