Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion
Jon's death only makes sense dramatically if he is reborn in some way. He may no longer be Jon as we know him, but he must at the very least live on through Ghost(otherwise why bother with all that Varamyr stuff?) which would be even less interesting than him being dead. So far no one that has died has come back "whole" so Jon could be unique in that (boring)way and/or he will be Azor Ahai. Considering shit needs to start moving towards a climax at some point soon, I'm going with the latter and the loss of him as a POV with the role of informing us about the northerly goings-on being passed to Melisandre.
