Now what? "Game of Thrones" isn't entirely about Jon Snow, but Kit Harington confirmed that Season 6 is his character's biggest season to date. Episode 3, "Oathbreaker," ended with Jon quitting his job as Lord Commander and walking out of Castle Black to go ... where?

Obviously, many fans want him to head down to Winterfell, save Rickon Stark and Osha, and hand Ramsay Bolton a fresh can of whoopass. But we'll have to see if that happens, and if he'll run into Sansa Stark, Brienne, and Pod along the way.
Kit Harington told Entertainment Weekly why Jon quit the Night's Watch, and also teased some very exciting Jon stories ahead:
"He's done with it. He's seen the other side, seen what's there, and comes back and realizes he needs to lead his life and get out of there. This place betrayed him, and everything he stood for has changed. Plus, he had to kill a child, Olly, and that's what really does it. He kills an underage kid and he can't see the point in being up there anymore. At the heart of it, he knows by staying at the Wall he can't help the kingdoms and he's probably going to die very quickly if he stays."
In EW's new Jon Snow cover story, they were on set while Kit filmed an epic battle, with Jon swinging his sword and kicking butt. So we know that's ahead, and these shots from the Season 6 trailers suggest some other players in that game:
Get hype! In the issue, there's also this exciting tease, during the Q&A:
EW: How big a season is this for Jon moving forward?
Kit Harington: "It's the biggest season for him so far. There's one episode this season, which is Jon's story, that's the most epic episode we've done."
Do you think "Jon's story" will include this major battle -- the biggest the show has ever staged, according to the showrunners -- and also confirmation about Jon's past? Either way, we're looking forward to this epic episode.
