Kit Harington is prepared for you and your hot takes, Game of Thrones viewers. Warning, spoilers follow for the Game of Thrones series finale.
Yeah. It happened. Jon Snow killed Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) after she destroyed King’s Landing and ended the lives of thousands of innocents. His punishment? Head to back to the wall for the Night’s Watch…but wait a minute, does the Night’s Watch still exist? Instead of having to man the wall and watch for the undead, Jon was able to go be free with Tormund (Kristofer Hivju), Ghost and the Wildlings.
Harington said killing Daenerys impacted Jon, mostly because it was the second woman he loved who died because of him.
Ahead of the airing of the final episode, Harington said he was afraid the two episodes will be accused of being sexist.
Now if people feel let down by it, I don’t give a f–k because everyone tried their hardest. That’s how I feel. In the end, no one’s bigger fans of the show than we are, and we’re kind of doing it for ourselves. That’s all we could do, really. And I was just happy we got to the end,” he said.
The actor has long maintained he was “maybe not happy, but very satisfied” with the ending.
