To spare those not invested in the books... I feel so gratified I'm reading the book, just completed Dance of Dragons Chapter 7, "Jon". After the recent dismal season finale, this was uplifting, satisfying, and outstanding... for now. Spoiler: DoD: Jon Snow He just had Janos Slynt dragged out into the yard and personally cut off his head off with Longclaw after Slynt refused a direct order. How ironic after they had Slynt be the first to stab Jon in the show. It was great!
