SpeakingÂ exclusively to SciFiNowÂ at a press event for theÂ Game Of ThronesÂ Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD, Â Kit Harington revealed that Jon Snow may have embraced his duty to the Night’s Watch, journeying North of the Wall inÂ Game Of ThronesÂ Season 3, but he hasn’t forgotten that initial impulse to forsake his vows and ride South, join his half-brother Robb (Richard Madden)‘s war on the Lannister’s and avenge Ned Stark (Sean Bean)’s death…
“Interesting question,” mused the actor. “Itâ€™s one Iâ€™ve thought about myself actually because itâ€™s weird to think that heâ€™s been so loyal to his family, to be so not-Stark but Stark, and having his father killed by this king down South that he would accept that he has to go beyond the Wall and keep his vows that easily.
“And I think although heâ€™s got this great sense of honour about what heâ€™s done, what heâ€™s taken a vow for I kind of really like the idea heâ€™s just put it to one side, that heâ€™s gonna do everything he needs to do, and and one day heâ€™ll he find a way of going and taking his vengeance.
“Thatâ€™s my own theory on it, thereâ€™s nothing like that in the books, but my own theory, weirdly, secretly, is that thereâ€™s time for it in a strange sort of way, if he can kill Joffrey, or do what he can to get vengeance, he will in his own way, while trying to keep his vow.”
