Best Moment: Jon beheads Janos Slynt

The first big meeting for the new Lord Commander didn’t go without controversy, as Jon knew that Lord Slynt was a dishonorable coward, so he sent him off to Greyguard—but Slynt refused and insulted the “boy.” It didn’t take long for Jon to take control of the room, though, asking Slynt, “Are you refusing to obey my order?” Even after Alliser Thorne stood aside and allowed Edd and the other men to take Slynt outside, the former Lord Commander of the City Watch didn’t seem to realize the seriousness of the situation until Jon was unsheathing his sword, which caused him to cry and plead for mercy. Lord Commander Snow thought about it for a second, but he quickly made the decision to carry on with the execution, and like Ned used to tell his kids, “The man who passes the sentence, should swing the sword.”

 

Best Quote

MVP: Jon Snow

After being named the 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch in the previous episode, Jon Snow wasted no time in making his mark on the position with the way he handled Janos Slynt. He not only got rid of a liability at the Wall, but he also gained the respect and/or fear of not only some fellow brothers of the Night’s Watch, but also Stannis, who gave Jon an approving nod after he beheaded Lord Slynt.
