HBO announced that it is developing a sequel to Game of thrones Centered around Jon Snow. My first big question is: Who asked about this?
I don’t mean this. HBO has something like 97 Game of thrones Shows in development, go to series maker George R.R. Martin’s blog posts and several other official and semi-official announcements. one of them, Dragon HouseNot only in green but will actually be broadcast in a couple of months. It relates to the history of the Targaryens, a family of incestuous Nazis; The hype and anticipation was basically nonexistent. We all remember the bad Targaryen wig from early on Game of thrones; from what i can say, Dragon House It’s all going to be bad wigs and a few other things.
With this display apparently poised to land with a jingle and the other 96 or so thrones Projects — all prequels, digging into esoteric knowledge, or the like — at various levels of incompleteness, HBO Now has also announced that Game of thrones sequel in business, Starring Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. Harrington, for his part, doesn’t seem busy; His attempt to focus on Marvel made him dull eternity Movie.
There are many characters from Game of thrones It is for them that I feel that there is a certain fondness that you feel when a character you love is trapped in a story that you don’t enjoy. I miss seeing Sansa, Arya, Tyrion, Cleganes, and Daenerys on TV every week, the way others miss the titular friends from friends. This makes sense: by the end of his run, Game of thrones It was a show about seeing my old friends every week hoping to live through the episode rather than the actual plot for the throne they fought for.
One character that I have not missed at all, and I seriously doubt a great many people will be missing, Jon Snow. Snow – a bastard of the Starks family who was secretly heir to the throne (although not really, because it was clearly established that he was the bastard heir to an overthrown dynasty who had no political support and as someone who swore to never seek political power, and who had no claim –thrones I actually derailed at the end there) – she was a very boring figure. Its main characteristic was that it was birdless, and was destined to roam around the world without knowing its place in it. That was the tragic irony on which his character was based—that he had no idea that his parents made him (sort of? Maybe?) destined for the Iron Throne. In order for the character to work, he had to be a worthless idiot, the kind of guy who would have been called Aegon even though his father already had a son named Aegon, and this was something other characters noticed all along. The closest he had to a famous phrase was people telling him, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
To be clear, showing off Jon Snow seems like a bad idea. Snow isn’t really a likable character – at the end of the show he’s entangled in a particularly boring romantic plot involving sexting his aunt and tempting him from her shows to do genocide with her, snatching anything that might be interesting from the character standing in his favour being sad and/ or excited. Also, by the time the show ends, the character will have completed their entire trajectory. He had discovered his completely secret heritage and rejected it and chose to live in the jungle with this knowledge completely buried. He literally learned one thing, and decided that was enough.
I suspect that by returning to Westeros after a plot Game of thrones The show is over, it will reveal more of the fictional structure of the place than we would like to see. For example, now that Jon Snow had finally joined the Night’s Watch, as he had always wanted, what was actually guarding him outside the Wall? The Starks and their allies destroyed all the white infantry at the end Game of thronesAnd I did it very impressively. Do they really need an extra army on that wall now to keep an eye on the bunch of prairie and free folk roaming after it? Will Season 1 really be about the bureaucratic rationale for an independent army that has no reason to exist, and still exists? This can’t Probably It’s a fun show to watch. Jon having conversations with his brother Bran, the All-Powerful God King, and with Tyrion, his close friend who runs the Seven Kingdoms of the Divine King, might be more interesting, but they also likely undermine the premise of the show, as the conversations are supposed to be about how these people could The mighty could easily rescue John from exile by a military order that existed for one purpose now fulfilled.
Through thick and thin, Game of thrones is over. Her story doesn’t leave many openings for sequels or spin-offs (although David Lynch does want to make a presentation about a king of an all-seeing God, able to psychologically enslave everyone at the same time at all points in space and time that might be interesting), and to Besides, the hunger for it is not really there, if the lukewarm reception Dragon House say anything. After all that John has been through, I hope he doesn’t have another adventure. He finally got the right to die like an idiot, just as he was born.
