The stages of Jon finding out he was the one to kill Dany.
Note: Kit Harington did not read his script ahead of time, so this is him finding out for real. Sophie Turner obviously did, because LOOK AT THAT KNOWING SMIRK. Sansa knows what’s up. pic.twitter.com/sVjKUi9Ye6

The clip from #TheLastWatch of Kit Harington learning that Jon Snow kills Daenerys is making me feel more for the actor than I felt for the character, in that scene or throughout the series. This just makes me want video of every #GameOfThrones table read. pic.twitter.com/eMxKgEYhZ5

Even though the show received a lot of backlash fans have appreciated the show and all the hard work that has been put into making the biggest show in television history. Kit Harington responded to the news in an interview with Esquire saying, “In the end, no one’s bigger fans of the show than we are, and we’re kind of doing it for ourselves. That’s all we could do, really. And I was just happy we got to the end.”
