Game of Thrones Spoilers: Season 4 Is a Fresh Start
With the Northern Rebellion essentially coming to an end last season with the murder of Robb Stark and Cat Stark at the Red Wedding, Season 4 of Game of Thrones seems to be heading in a new direction. One of the big players in that transition is sure to be Jon Snow, portrayed by Kit Harington, who recently sounded off on what the new season’s going to be like.
“This season is quite interesting because you start fresh in a weird sort of way,” Kit tells Zap2it. “The Red Wedding kind of wipes the slate clean in a strange kind of way. You get rid of all the Starks, and then you start fresh. That was quite nice that we were just starting a new story in a strange way.”
To be fair, we haven’t gotten rid of all the Starks. Losing Robb and Cat was a huge blow, but we still have Arya, Sansa, Bran, and Rickon scattered across the continent, and of course Jon Snow himself has Stark blood. Without question though, the Starks are worse off than they’ve ever been, with Roose Bolton now the Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North. With the focus shifting away from the wolf family we were groomed to root for from the pilot episode, it sounds like we’ll have to look for a new favorite family in Season 4. Martells, anyone?
