After Jon is resurrected from the dead, he’s got some administrative work to get out of the way.

While it’s fair to say that Jon is dealing with a lot psychologically in the wake of being brought back from death by Melisandre, he still knows that he can’t let the guys who betrayed him get away with it. Or, you know, LIVE, for that matter. Jon follows-up his execution of Janos Slynt with one the brings four times the death, with a child thrown in for good measure. You see, Ollie is also included in the hanging lineup; there was a time where there was almost a father-son quality to Jon’s relationship with Ollie, who had already suffered a tragedy at the hands of the Wildlings. His family had been killed by Wildlings right in front of him, after all, so you could say little Ollie had the right to be bitter. One could have made an argument for mercy, since he’s just a kid that was brought on board to Jon’s murder by grown ass men who should have left him the hell out of it. But I suppose when that bitterness drives you to drive a knife through the Lord Commander’s heart – a man who had only shown you kindness – sympathy kind of goes flying out the window.

Jon lined up every traitor, including Ollie, and had them all hung without even flinching.

Kid had it coming.

Next: I mean…come on.
