Warning: Major spoilers ahead for the series finale of Game of Thrones.

After eight seasons — and a slew of fan reactions, including an angry petition Game of Thrones has come to an end.

Daenerys Targaryen was assassinated by her lover, Jon Snow, Bran the Broken was named King of the Six Kingdoms, and Sansa Stark is now the Queen of the North. 

However, there is still one major question the finale has fans asking: 

Where is Jon Snow actually going? 

After killing Dany in the throne room (RIP) Jon was arrested and taken prisoner. As punishment, he was banished to the Night's Watch and the show ends with Jon as the Lord Commander once again.

However, the finale scene of the series shows Jon leading Tormund and a group of wildings north of the wall, prompting many viewers to wonder where Jon was leading the horde of wilding women, children, and men.

"Finale did not work for me at any level. Poorly written, enormous plot holes, least compelling character to the audience is now the Big Cheese. And Where the F is Jon Snow going?" one fan asked on Twitter. Another added, "Is Jon Snow going with the Wildlings permanently?  If so, why is he wearing black?"

Well, just as many viewers had answers — or at least very convincing theories — as fans who had questions. 

Jon Snow is going to live with the Wildings. 

Many fans believe Jon is going where he was his best — with the wildings. "Sansa earning her right to rule after all she’s been through. Arya exploring. Jon Snow going off to live where he thrives... Dany meeting her fate," one viewer wrote. Another jokingly added, "Jon Snow going to see if he could resurrect his first true love beyond the wall."

It makes sense. Jon Snow earned the respect of the wildings early on, and fell in love North of the wall, so why wouldn't he want to return?

He was just taking the Wildings back home. 

Others believe Jon was just escorting the wildlings back to their homes, as a sign of respect for helping him defeat the Night King. 

"Jon Snow wasn’t going to “the wild” to live with the free folk. He was banished to the wall to be a part of the Nights Watch again. If he went to live with the free folk, treason. Death. If anything he was escorting them back. Show sucked." Tell us how you really feel, @trobbz44.

Did Jon Snow just cancel the Night's Watch? 

Some believe that not only did Jon Snow go to live with the wildings — he shut down the whole wall. And TBH, why do we need a wall anyway?

"Did y’all not watch til the end Jon Snow isn’t in the damn nights watch...he clearly goes north of the wall with Tormund..wall shuts..he’s not going back..aka why Tormund said a few episodes ago “you have the north in you Jon Snow..the real north," a fan explained. 

At the end of the day, all fans can agree on something: a Jon Snow spin-off.

"I need a spinoff of Arya’s adventures west of Westeros and another spinoff with Jon Snow in the north with Tormund and Ghost finding out that the White Walkers are still going strong," one person tweeted shortly after the finale. 

Another chimed in, "That Jon Snow/Tormund spin-off sitcom is going to be awesome." 

We're here for it.
