'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Spoilers: Jon Snow Is Westerosi Hero? Is Kit Harrington Azor Ahai, The Promised Prince?
The recent revival of Jon Snow in "Game of Thrones" has brought about speculations that Kit Harrington's character is the legendary Westerosi figure known as Azor Ahai or "the Prince that was Promised." According to Bustle, there are a lot of substantial proofs that the now resurrected Lord Commander could be valiant warrior as alleged in the Game of Thrones' "Home" episode which could provide a massive significant shift in his future role on the HBO series.
The website mentioned that what was verbally mentioned in the prophecy should be understood more in their general meaning which stated that, "When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone."
To reawaken Azor Ahai, the website stated that it should coincide with certain comings and goings which somehow has been in a linear arrangement with what has been in the "Game of Thrones" narrative prior to Snow's resurgence.
Below are some of the assumptions that may stir the pot on "the Prince that was Promised" theory:
Jon Snow and Ygritte could be their generation's Azor Ahai and Nissa Nissa
To fully defeat the White Walkers, Azor Ahai sacrificed his own beloved wife Nissa Nissa by letting her bare her breast as he plunged the blade that fashioned the sword Lightbringer. Snow in the same unlikely manner vanquished a White Walker using his own sword after his beloved wildling was killed by an arrow.
The Red Witch is the figurative "bleeding star"
Melisandre could represent the "red star that bleeds" in this Westerosi puzzle as she had made a sacrificed in bringing Snow back to life.
The obvious presence of "smoke"
As a still lifeless Snow finally said goodbye to his dearly loved curly locks courtesy of Melisandre cutting off his hair, smoke arises as the priestess threw the strands of black hair into the flames.
Prior to these assumptions, the now departed Stannis Baratheon was greatly considered to be the Azor Ahai as assumed especially with his connections to Melisandre.
