Read Game of Thrones' heart-piercing script for Season 5's most pivotal moment

And now here they are, the three pages that set off gasps of "no f$ing way" in living rooms across the world, via Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab):

Not much easier to read than it is to watch, it turns out. At least we've uncovered plenty more reasons to believe Jon Snow will return (opens in new tab) since the original airing.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
