36 Questions We Have After The 'Game Of Thrones' Season 5 Finale


The fifth season of "Game of Thrones" came to a close on Sunday night, leaving us in a pool of tears after that character's death. It was a devastating finale that packed in a surplus of storylines, but also left fans with a ton of questions.

Spoiler alert for Season 5, Episode 10, "Mother's Mercy."

Just one of the many events from the finale leaving us with endless questions is Jon Snow's death. (First of all: why???) We've speculated over the possible ways in which Jon (Kit Harington) could return to the series eventually, especially after George R.R. Martin gave us more hope for Jon in the books. But still, a lot went down in "Mother's Mercy" that has everyone confused. Here are all the things we're still wondering about after the Season 5 finale:

  • Is Jon seriously gone forever?
  • Will Melisandre resurrect him?
  • If not, why is she even at The Wall?
  • Will Jon's body be burned so he won't turn into a Wight?

  • Speaking of that battle, um, why didn't we see it?
  • Hey HBO, can you increase the "Game of Thrones" budget so we can see the battle, please?
