As Game of Thrones pulls further and further away from its source material the deeper we get into season six, it’s becoming more difficult to get a read on where the show is headed with the majority of its storylines. The third episode of the season, “Oathbreaker,” doesn’t move things forward much outside of a few developments, but these small bits of forward momentum still raise a number of questions regarding the show’s story trajectory. Here are 10 questions we have in the wake of “Oathbreaker.”
10. Will Jon’s Resurrection Change Him?
The most fascinating part of “Oathbreaker” was watching to see whether the newly resurrected Jon Snow had changed in any meaningful way. After a bit of interesting preamble between Davos and Jon (including the latter admitting that he saw nothing in the afterlife, which could end up being a significant revelation), Jon pretty much went back to business-as-usual, executing those who betrayed him and formulating plans for how to proceed with the imminent White Walker invasion. As great as it is to have Jon back, his return is tinged with unease due to the fact that those who have come back from the dead on Game of Thrones in the past have proven to be different in some way after their resurrection. Is Jon still the same man he was before being stabbed to death, or has something changed profoundly within him that has yet to manifest himself? The latter seems the more likely of the two, as not even Jon Snow can escape death unscathed; it just remains to be seen how Jon might be different.
