(Spoiler alert: Do not keep reading if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones.”)
“Night falls, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.” But what happens when death ends?
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) has come back from the dead in the new season of “Game of Thrones,” and fans took to social media to dissect the bad news he delivered to Melisandre in Sunday’s episode: He didn’t see the Lord of Light. In fact, he didn’t see anything at all. It doesn’t seem that there’s an afterlife waiting for the dead of Westeros.
While the rank and file of the Night’s Watch look at him like the apostles gazing upon the risen Christ, fans naturally made a bunch of jokes about seeing the Lord Commander in the buff.

Bran falls out window and forgets the twincest he witnessed.
Jon came back from the dead and remembers everything.#GameofThrones

So Tormund got to see Jon Snow’s “pecker” but we don’t? Shame. Shame. Shame. #GameOfThrones

And now that Jon’s back, he’s ready to prove that a resurrected Stark is more scary than an army of White Walkers. He rounds up Alliser Thorne and all the conspirators involved in the mutiny that killed him and executes them in a manner similar to how his father executed traitors. Then he hands his cloak off and makes a bold mic drop declaration: “Now my watch has ended.”
Yep. Jon is using his second lease on life as a loophole out of his commitment to the Watch. He’s heading back south. Let the Targaryen theory talk commence.
