HBO’s TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s first novel in his fantasy epic series “A Song of Ice and Fire” has been one of the most popular series since it originally aired in April 2011. Game of Thrones Season 7 finale ended with a lot of cliffhangers and we all hope to get answers as soon as Season 8 kicks off. Unfortunately, that is still months, or even years away but that doesn’t keep fans from speculating on what might transpire on the upcoming Season 8. One fan-made theory has been doing the rounds on the Internet which that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is a fire wight.

Is Jon Snow immortal?

“Game of Thrones” fans know that Jon was only resurrected by Melisandre (Carice van Houten) when he was killed by his own people at The Wall during his reign as the commander of the Night’s Watch. During an interview, author GRRM has somewhat fuelled the fan-made theory that the supposed bastard son of Ned Stark is a wight. Martin said that Beric Dondarrion (David Michael Scott) is considered as the "foreshadowing” as his memories slowly disappear and he is becoming more physically dreadful. Apparently, this is because he is no longer a living human being.

“His heart isn’t beating, his blood isn’t flowing in his veins, he’s a wight, but a wight animated by fire instead of by ice,” Martin said.

“Game of Thrones” fans suggest that if Beric is indeed a fire wight, then Jon Snow is also like him. Ned’s bastard was also revived by Melisandre in the same way as Beric, which could mean that he is a fire wight. That being said, he might just be Azor Ahai reborn – a legendary warrior that tempered the sword called Lightbringer, to fight the White Walkers or called the Others in the book.

Jon Snow’s fate as Azor Ahai reborn

For those who have read the books, Beric didn’t actually make it to the north because when he was resurrected, he gave up his life to revive Catelyn Stark. So, if things go as what fans planned, Jon’s fate on “Game of Thrones” Season 8 might be the same as Beric’s. This means that he will have to sacrifice the life of the woman he loves just like Azor Ahai who plunged the sword into his wife’s living heart to defeat the undead.

Daenerys Targaryen might die but once the Night King is defeated using the Lightbringer, Jon Snow might have to give up his resurrected life to bring back Dany.

Nonetheless, Martin may have also hinted that Jon’s fate that’s being linked to Beric might just be a prophecy. What’s your hunch about this “Game of Thrones” theory?
