I am famously not a fan of the ending of Game of Thrones, but if they make a Jon Snow show after season 8 where he’s dealing with PTSD after killing Daenerys I am so down. The Kenobi of A Song of Ice & Fire type series. https://t.co/AUgPfE05tr

If Jon Snow’s story is really going to continue, then I don’t want to see him taking any step back.
I would love to see Jon find himself on the Golden Empire of Yi Ti, exploring a whole other side of the world, a new culture, and threats. Basically a Last Samurai meets 47 Ronin. pic.twitter.com/smNLilMXyl
