Kit Harington reveals why Jon Snow betrayed Dany in Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington has revealed why his character Jon Snow betrayed Daenerys Targaryen in the final season of the HBO show.
The actor revealed in the GoT Season 8 DVD commentary that he didn’t know he was going to betray her until right at the end.
“In Jon’s head, it’s a number of reasons: Dany doesn’t factor in anyone else’s decisions and it also means [Dany] is going to kill my sisters, so it becomes [my] family vs. her,” Entertainment weekly quoted the star as saying.
The last episode of the fantasy show had angered the fans when Daenerys Targaryen was stabbed by Jon Snow.
Some fans had even started an online petition demanding HBO remake the whole final season of Game of Thrones.
Dany’s end came as a surprise to majority of fans who had been waiting for the final season for two years.
There were numerous theories on who would finally win the Iron Throne.
The battle for Throne ended in favor of Bran Stark who was not even vying for power.
Throughout the run of the show, fans thought either Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow would grab the throne after ousting Cersei Lannister.
