How Jon Snow 'was behind' death of The Night King in Game of Thrones

Many of us were left stunned when Arya Stark killed off The Night King in the final season of Game Of Thrones, but it turns out that the young warrior might have her brother Jon to thank.

Eagle-eyed fans have rewatched the epic Battle of Winterfell scenes, that took place in series eight episode The Long Night, and have worked out that Jon (Kit Harington) aided her epic takedown.

Sharing their findings on Reddit, they pointed out that The White Wolf cried out to distract the undead dragon so that his sister could sneak past it and enter the Godswood.

Not all were convinced by this theory though, with one skeptic writing: ‘I love the idea that Jon was purposefully trying to distract the dragon, but there is no indication he was even aware of Arya.’

Let us live!
