Jon Snow has always played a crucial role in the Game of Thrones universe, and this upcoming season will be no exception. Season 6 was his biggest season yet, and fans are excited to see what is coming next. In case you’ve forgotten some details about what happened to Jon Snow in Season 6, here’s a look back on his storyline.
In a phenomenal scene at the very beginning of the season, Jon Snow was raised from the dead, thanks to Melisandre. She didn’t think she could do it — she had lost all her faith. She had done terrible things in the name of Stannis, believing he was the one. But she was wrong. However, the Lord of Light appears to need priests to lose their faith before a miracle of resurrection can happen. She tells Jon that Stannis was not the Prince Who Was Promised, but someone else is (and she believes it is him.)
Jon executes the traitors who killed him (and fans were maybe a little too happy about Olly’s demise.) He then decided that since he died, his watch had ended, and he gave up his black cloak. Much later, Jon was forced to banish Melisandre despite what she did for him, because Davos revealed that she led the movement to burn Shireen alive.
After Sansa and Theon escaped Winterfell, Sansa had a long-awaited reunion with Jon Snow.
Jon and Sansa decided to go to battle against Ramsay Bolton and his well-trained army, once he sent Sansa a letter letting her know that he had Rickon. When the two military commanders met for the Battle of the Bastards, Ramsay showed Rickon to Jon. He let Rickon try to run across an open field to Jon, but shot and killed him with an arrow before he could reach Jon.
This set Jon off and he just charged headfirst into battle. There was a frightening moment when it looked like Jon was going to be defeated.
But that was when Littlefinger, at Sansa’s request, rode in to the rescue, accompanied by the Knights of the Vale.
After the battle was over, Jon defeated Ramsay in hand-to-hand combat, but left him alive so Sansa could have her revenge.
At the end of the season, there was an amazing scene with the lords of the Northern Kingdom, where they ultimately declared Jon “King of the North” and pledged their loyalty. Jon, the Bastard son, finally could truly claim his rightful heritage.
