Jorah Mormont Survived The Battle of Winterfell in an Alternate 'Game of Thrones' Ending


It's fair to say that Jorah Mormont went through a lot for Daenerys in Game of Thrones. While he was originally sent to spy on the Targaryens to earn a pardon from King Robert, Jorah quickly became Daenerys' most trusted adviser and friend. Jorah doesn't hide his love for Daenerys throughout the series, so sacrificing himself to save her from a horde of wights during the Battle of Winterfell seemed like a suitable end for the knight. 

But the show's writers didn't always have this fate planned for Jorah. In fact, he was originally going to survive the finale. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, one of the HBO saga's writers revealed that in an ending they had planned our initially, Jorah lives to see Daenerys burn King's Landing to the ground.
