"Game of Thrones" and the Northern Realm

Looking back on the last season of "Game of Thrones," Jon Snow was already proclaimed dead. However, with the red priestess' help named Melisandre, resurrected. As life returned to Snow, he immediately killed the mutineers of the Night's Watch. After the killing, Snow gave the power and control to his buddy, "Dolorous" Edd Tollett.

Winterfell is Snow's ancestral home and this is the very same place where the "Battle of the Bastards" occurred. It led to many casualties and among those that perished is Snow's younger brother Rickon. Wun-Wun, known as the last surviving giant was also one of the fallen from that battle.
