I sat in disbelief and stared at the screen as it went dark. Like a lot of you, I gathered my friends together last night to watch the Game of Thrones Season 5 finale. I know the show well, and know they hold no loyalty to their characters, but nothing could have prepared me for the death of my beloved Jon Snow, the bastard child who rose to be a hero. Like most, I wondered the purpose of killing him when we need him most. (We all remember his awe-inducing fight with the white-walker a few episodes back) I mean the world needs him!
I find it interesting, and yes, sometimes frustrating, the direction the TV writers are taking the show, especially after reading about all the differences between the books and the TV series.
