Kit Harington's Jon Snow Was Originally Supposed to Kill the Night King on 'Game of Thrones'

If you haven’t watched the final season of Game of Thrones yet, you might want to look away from this post, but the spoiler window has definitely passed by now!

Maisie Williams‘ beloved character Arya is the one who finally kills the villainous Night King at the end of the final season and she just revealed that someone else was originally supposed to slay the evil character.

Turns out, Jon Snow was originally going to kill the Night King and Kit Harington was just as shocked as the rest of us when Arya did the deed.

“[Kit Harington] expected it to go [Jon Snow’s] way, too, and he even said, ‘It was going to go that way. Someone told me in season three that I was going to kill The Night King.’ And then, he read the script, and it was Arya the whole time,” Maisie told THR.

She added, “Yeah, I think it would’ve been too obvious. I’m glad that it was Arya, honestly. I think I had the best storyline of the final season.”

In another recent interview, Maisie talked about why she’s “so happy” with the show’s ending.
