‘GOT’ fans are convinced Jon Snow is going to die in the next episode
It’s fair to say that Sunday’s episode took the show back to what makes it great in the first place. Oh sure, we all love epic battles with zombie hordes, dragons, magic spells, and brave last stands – but what Game of Thrones does best is character development, plotting, backstabbing, and a few unexpected deaths.
As the show approaches its end after eight seasons, all bets are off when it comes to the subject of who will survive the coming conflict over the Iron Throne. Sadly, it seems as though the great alliance between Jon and Daenerys might now be in jeopardy; with the revelation that Jon has a claim to the throne that precedes Daenerys’ threatening to end their relationship and their union of crowns.
In all honesty. I believe Jon snow dies protecting daenerys. She will sit on the throne and those who supported him will follow her.

Because of this, a number of Game of Thrones fans are now convinced that Jon is going to kick the bucket (for the second time no less) in the upcoming episode. This speculation was made all the more rampant, after Jon’s actor Kit Harrington mentioned in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that the series finale felt very “Shakespearian” to him.
Kit stated: “One of my favourite episodes is four because the characters have seemingly got what they needed. The world is safe now. They’re celebrating and saying goodbye to lost friends. But as an audience you’re going, ‘This is only episode 4, something’s going to happen.’ And that’s the cool thing because I think the characters are aware of this as well. There’s something twisted and uncomfortable about it. It’s so Shakespearian.”
