Where was Jon Snow going at the end of Game of Thrones?
Jon Snow convinces the Wildlings to cross the wall - Game of Thrones S05E08
The Free Folk is the self-given name for the people who live in the lands beyond the Wall , still on the continent of Westeros but beyond the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms. The people of the Seven Kingdoms refer to the Free Folk derogatorily as " wildlings, " while the Free Folk refer to those south of the Wall as " kneelers. Normally the wildlings are divided into many different rival clans, but occasionally, they unite behind a single over-chieftain known as a King-Beyond-the-Wall , as they were under Mance Rayder. The term "wildlings" is sometimes also employed to refer to other "savages," such as the members of the hill tribes of the Vale that defy the rule of House Arryn , but out of context, the term is usually understood to refer to the peoples living beyond the Wall. They were, essentially, the people unlucky enough to be living north of the Wall when it was constructed eight thousand years ago.
We already knew that Game of Thrones ' final stretch would lean on its many instances of foreshadowing instead of any meticulous real-time character development , thanks to that rapid Daenerys Targaryen Emilia Clarke heel turn in "The Bells. Here are some of the ways Game of Thrones built up to Jon Snow's final moments. For starters, Jon's decision to kill Daenerys himself rings true to his long-held family philosophy, first introduced by his "father" Ned Stark Sean Bean , that "the man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. Perhaps more importantly, he was also the only person who could possibly get close enough to her to make it happen, since Grey Worm Jacob Anderson was as loyal as ever and Drogon would never. Thus, it was on Jon to pass the sentence and swing the sword — er, plunge the dagger. The decision also gives weight to the theory that whomever the Lord of Light resurrects has a designed purpose for being revived.
Where Jon Snow was going has left viewers in confusion with some suggesting he is now a Wildling. Jon Snow and Tormund were both on horseback as they left Castle Black and the wall behind them and rode north. The Haunted Forest is located beyond the wall and it is where his former love Ygritte Rose Leslie was laid to rest. Benjen did not reappear in season eight, episode three, The Long Night as a wight, suggesting his body may still be there to be found. Hardhome is one such location, but it is unlikely Jon Snow will want to revisit there after the monumental fight against the White Walkers and wights in season five.
