A new Game of Thrones supercut video celebrates the legacy of Jon Snow. On the HBO fantasy series, English actor Kit Harington portrays the valiant character, one who overcomes the odds to become a masterful leader and negotiator.
In Game of Thrones' eighth and final season, Jon Snow prepares for the Great War against the Night King. In order to protect humanity, the former King in the North makes alliances with numerous influential figures across the Seven Kingdoms, all the while embarking on a romantic relationship with Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons. Thus far in Game of Thrones season 8, Jon Snow has finally learned the truth about his lineage and must process this new information just hours before the Night King and his army of the dead arrive in Winterfell.
On Twitter, Barstool Sports producer Henry Lockwood posted a Jon Snow highlight video, accompanied by the caption “Ready to run through a brick (or ice) wall.” The video begins by highlighting the bond between Jon Snow and the man he always knew to be his father, Ned Stark, then shifts to the agony felt by Catelyn Stark, Ned's wife who raised five children along with the “bastard” Jon. The editing combines clips of Jon’s struggles while serving with the Night’s Watch along with the character’s resurrection. Lockwood's edit also emphasizes Jon’s transition into a true leader, including various battle clips and the anointing of Jon as King in the North. The video ends on Catelyn musing about the horror that House Stark has experienced because she “couldn’t love a motherless child.” Watch the epic Jon Snow video below:

The release of the Jon Snow video comes at an important time as several Game of Thrones characters are expected to be killed off during season 8’s third episode. The highly-anticipated Battle of Winterfell production was directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who previously helmed Game of Thrones classics like “The Gift,” “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “The Winds of Winter.” Sapochnik also directed the penultimate episode for Game of Thrones’ final season, which will air on May 12.
As Game of Thrones progresses forward with its final chapters, fans and critics alike have celebrated season 8’s “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.” Written by Bryan Cogman, the episode features numerous iconic moments and provides clarity for different storylines. At this point, fans mostly know what Jon Snow wants, but it’s still unclear what the Night King is truly hoping to achieve by attacking Winterfell. When it’s all said and done, the Game of Thrones Jon Snow supercut video will undoubtedly feel even more dramatic and epic.
