During the season finale, we had an interesting scene where Jon Snow and Melisandre locked eyes for a brief moment through the flames of the funeral pyre at Castle Black. Knowing that Jon has a thing for redheads, Jon/Mel shippers immediately began clamoring for these two to hook up, but we don’t see it happening. The two should have an interesting relationship in Season 5, but neither of them are looking for romance at this time. Of course, that doesn’t mean we won’t get a scene or two of Mel prancing around naked and making Jon super uncomfortable, which is something we wouldn’t be shocked at all to see.
In the books, Jon does have a few flirty moments with another character named Val, the so-called Wildling Princess. She is the sister of Mance Rayder’s wife, who dies during childbirth, and she’s apparently quite stunning. She and Jon never become romantically linked, but Jon, like everyone else, seems to have a little crush on her. We haven’t heard anything about casting for Val in Season 5, so she’s likely cut from the show, leading us to believe that Jon remains a loner in Season 5.
Which is probably a good thing, he’s already got 99 problems for next season.
