David Nutter, the director who has come of age with Game of Thrones, has now got his calling. The latest season of the sitcom came to an end recently, yet again killing one of the lead characters. Only this time it’s different. It’s a Godsend opportunity for the great director to join the league of extraordinary showmen, no gender bias there, like Ekta Kapoor.
The death of Jon Snow, has seen a huge outcry from the public, read the Indian public. The social media has been RIPped apart by the condolences pouring in from all quarters. Those that do not know who Jon Snow was, might confuse him with some legend. But mortal that he was, his redemption awaits at the hands of the director.
The intensity of this outcry feebly matches one of the times when Mihir Virani, in Ekta Kapoor’s flagship production Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, translated on Wikipedia as Because a Mother-in-law was once a Daughter-in-law, too or BAMWOADT, was killed. It was a revelation that shot Ekta Kapoor from being a great showman to a legend. After all, the only person to carry out the feat before Mihir Virani was around 2000 years back. Jesus! And He had failed to have a facelift in the comeback!
David Nutter, notoriously eliminates the characters who shot to high fame in each of his seasons thereby maintaining the balance of power and payment. However, everybody has his quantum of luck, and David’s chance is now. None of the martyrs had received such heartfelt condolence from the audience. And the love is so great that tributes are not limited to Jon Snow but also extend to ‘John Snow’, ‘Jhon Snow’ and sometimes 'Kaun Snow?'.
