A Song of Dan and Josh: Jon III (A Clash of Kings)


Journey with us into the heart of winter on A Song of Dan and Josh, a complete read-through of George R.R. Martin’s painfully incomplete Song of Ice and Fire series!

This week, we’re talking through Jon III from A Clash of Kings. We meet a couple of key characters in this installment, including Craster and Gilly. How’s a bastard boy to muddle through the moral quagmires one encounters after you’ve left civilization behind? Let’s find out:

Martin’s writing is a highlight in this chapter, with a couple of descriptive passages standing out. But the real meat of the chapter involves how Jon deals with a number of difficult choices. The Night’s Watch relies on Craster, but he’s a monster of a man. Would they be better off getting rid of him or avoiding him?

And what about Gilly? She comes to Jon desperate and asking for help, but he refuses. Why? Can he stay true to his honor as a Night’s Watchmen if he refuses to help people in need?
