The showrunners and producers of Game of Thrones have had a hell of a time playing with the emotions of the fans and looks like they are not done yet. This time around they have done it through our beloved Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the fantasy series. The fantasy series’ documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch released on Monday and there is one clip that fans cannot stop raving about. In fact, it is the exact moment when Kit realizes that he kills his beloved queen and the love of his life Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) on the show.
The clip is a part of a documentary on the making of GOT, the recording of a table reading from the finale’s script. As showrunner DB Weiss reads out Daenerys’ final moment on the show and how Jon kisses her one last time before plunging a dagger into her heart, we get to see Kit immersed in the scene and then having an emotional reaction as he couldn’t believe his ears. He goes all red and restless and cups his face in his hands and looks at Emilia sitting across the table who gives him a sheepishly knowing look. We also get to see Sophie Turner’s (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams’ (Arya Stark) reaction.
Kit is shocked to find out what happens in the finale.
Emilia's reaction is like, "Is this really happening?
Kit looks dismayed at the prospect of killing his beloved queen but is trying hard to come to terms with the fact that it is the inevitable answer to saving thousands of people from her potential wrath. Sophie seems surprised as well as overjoyed at the ending, though.
Maisie is shocked to read about the potential death.
Kit and Sophie can be seen clapping but the biggest question is 'Why?'
Here's how the actual scene progressed in the finale.
The Twitterati have been raving about Kit’s reaction and several of them wrote that his reaction was far more emotional than the actual scene itself. Check out a few tweets below.
The stages of Jon finding out he was the one to kill Dany.
Note: Kit Harington did not read his script ahead of time, so this is him finding out for real. Sophie Turner obviously did, because LOOK AT THAT KNOWING SMIRK. Sansa knows what's up. pic.twitter.com/sVjKUi9Ye6
