Game of Thrones Season Finale: Jon says goodbye to Ygritte (GIF)


If you watched last week’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, you know that things did not end well for Ygritte. In fact, she did slowly in the arms of Jon Snow.

Just when you thought the heartbreak was over, the show gives you that one last kick in the soul.

After Jon’s incredibly awkward meeting with Mance Rayder was so rudely interrupted by Stannis Baretheon and his legion of soldiers, Jon had one last mission to complete.

Jon brought Ygritte’s body out into the woods and laid her within a funeral pyre. After one last look at her pale white skin as it glistened in the light, he set the pyre on fire and watched as it burned, then turned and walked away.

I am sure that this is not the ending that Jon had hoped for; however, there was only one way that this could have ended. Ygritte made her decision, and she had to live, or in her case die, with the consequences.
