A Game of Thrones Chapter 49 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Sam and all of Jon's friends are graduated to full members of the Night's Watch, and everyone is given their assignment. Surprisingly, Jon is going to be a steward, which seems to be a punishment from Alliser Thorne; but since Jon is going to be the steward for the Lord Commander, maybe it's not so bad.
- Jon and Sam go north of the Wall to say their oath at the godswood there.
- And while they're there, Ghost goes out and finds a corpse's hand, which saves this chapter from being totally bloodless. (Every chapter needs a little something gross, right?)
