Ygritta Is Dead: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fans Mourn Her Death On Twitter
We knew nothing about loss until we lost the wonderful Ygritte (Rose Leslie)! An epic battle of wildlings vs. crows played out in “The Watchers On The Wall,” and Ygritte told her wildling clan that no one was to kill Jon other than herself. However, Jon didn’t make that same deal with his team at Castle Black.
Ygritte had made her way through the battle to Jon, and it was clear she didn’t have it in her to kill him. As she hesitated, she was shot through the heart with Olly’s arrow, and as she died, told Jon, “We should’ve stayed in that cave,” and, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” SO SAD.

I once read a fake spoiler about how Jon & Ygritte got married, and had 2 children together. I will now live in a bubble where this is canon — Sarah (@Dandelionx) June 9, 2014
That boy who shot Ygritte thru the heart reminded Jon Snow of the most golden rule in the Night’s Watch: Crows before Hoes #GoT
