Welcome back for another Game of Thrones Theory video. Today I want to take a look back at some of the previous seasons, because Samwell Tarly may have given some “bad” advice that led to the end of Jon Snow & Ygritte. Not just the end of their relationship, but the end of their lives. I’m sure most of you know Olly is largely responsible for this, but it was what Samwell Tarly said that gave Olly the extra motivation to carry it out. Sam was the one who told Olly to pick up his bow and arrow the night Castle Black came under attack, and he gave Olly the advice that helped him justify what he would later do to Jon Snow. You could say that both of these events would have happen regardless, but it is interesting how it all played out. Olly was technically the character who delivered the final blows to both Ygritte and Jon Snow. Did Samwell Tarly’s advice motivate Olly, or do you think it was just a coincidence? Let me know down below. Thanks for watching!
