HBO’s Game Of Thrones character Jon Snow has proven to be the Christ figure of the Seven Kingdoms. GOT may be a science fiction fantasy world but it was, after all, born out of the minds of a Christian-based Western world and Jon Snow’s journey bears more than a few similarities to the Christ King.
Just like Jesus, Jon Snow’s story started off with a questionable birth story as the bastard son of Ned Stark of Winterfell but arced to become the savior of all men as he helped deliver the Seven Kingdoms from the the clutches of death, the White Walkers. Snow’s influence and message extended beyond race as he rallied all peoples to band together, even the pagan-like Free Folk, to battle the zombies of death.
In true Biblical fashion, Jon was betrayed, killed, and then brought back to life to save the people. His do-gooder conscious was so strong, his heart so true, that he was bound to his honor and word and dutifully bent the knee to Daenerys, remained loyal to the Free Folk, even tried to stop a rape during a heinous battle.
Of course it would turn out that Jon Snow was not the lowly bastard that everyone believed, but a King, and the true heir to the throne of the Seven Kingdoms. But as martyrdom goes, Jon continued to humble himself by deferring to Daenerys as his queen even when faced with the truth about his own lineage. However, when the good-intentioned Queen turns out to be a burn-down-the-city-and-slaughter-innocent-people, throne-grabbing mad woman Jon, once again, throws himself onto the fire to save his people, killing Daenerys for the good of all people.
And yet, after all of his sacrifices, Jon is cast aside and banished to live out his days in celibacy at the Night’s Watch with no future of female companionship or heirs and basically denied love.
It came as no surprise that Jon would leave the world that forsook him and join the Free Folk, his only true friends because they are not beholden to false gods or earthly treasures, and exhibit love and feelings more freely.
Perhaps in a sequel, Jon will return, kind of like the Second Coming of Christ.
