Game of Thrones: Why Kit Harington Loved Jon Snow's Ending

Even though Game of Thrones fans are still debating the series finale, star Kit Harington says he is satisfied with how Jon Snow's fate ended.

When asked about his thoughts and feelings on Jon Snow's final scene, Harington told The Hollywood Reporter, "I loved it. When I read it, that bit really made me cry. What really made me cry was on the paper: End of Game of Thrones.' But as far as an ending for Jon Snow, this character that I loved for so many years and had grown so close to, and had meant so much to me … seeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free."

He added, "Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending. As much as he had done a horrible thing [in killing Daenerys], as much as he had felt that pain, the actual ending for him was finally being released."

Harington's take on the final scene hopefully adds some clarification for fans who found themselves conflicted on the Game of Thrones finale.
