Little Brother Returns with ‘May The Lord Watch’ Album
In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way preserves his life. Yet our eyes failed, Looking for help was useless; In our watching we have watched For a nation that could not save.
But we prayed to our God, and because of them we set up a guard against them day and night. When she hears Tyrion sends him to the Wall, she carelessly says in Joffrey's presence "I hope the Others get him" and gets beaten. Tyrion is still disgusted with Slynt as he is in the TV series because he happily passed on the orders to a man under his command, and was thus ultimately responsible for it. Deem is exiled to the Wall with Slynt, though Tyrion gives orders for Deem to be killed and thrown overboard before he arrives.
Pycelle agrees with Tywin, and suggests Slynt for the office. Lord Slynt is not present during most of the Battle of Castle Black. He arrives with his crony Alliser Thorne at very late stage of the battle, both of them contributing nothing to the battle, only interfering. They seize command on the castle and interrogate Jon roughly. They accuse him of oathbreaking, cowardice, and desertion. Maester Aemon assures them that Jon has already explained his deeds to him and Donal Noye, but they either do not believe or do not care.
Jon repeats what he told before, that he was acting at Qhorin's orders, but his explanations are rejected. Slynt taunts Jon by claiming that Eddard Stark died a traitor. Hearing these lies about his father, Jon's patience runs out and when Thorne grabs Jon, Jon attacks him. The Eastwatch men pull Jon off Thorne and he is locked in an ice cell. Four days later, he is released as Aemon in that time has rallied several senior members of the Night's Watch to testify to Jon's loyalty, preventing Slynt and Thorne from executing him. Slynt and Thorne order Jon Snow to go to Mance Rayder under the pretext of parley and assassinate him.

Jon knows well that the wildlings will probably kill him on the spot, but he has no other choice but to do as told, knowing that a refusal will confirm the false accusations against him and give Thorne and Slynt an excuse to kill him. Jon also grudgingly acknowledges that the plan to assassinate Mance at the cost of his own life is the only viable plan they have left for saving the Night's Watch - though ultimately his meeting with Mance is interrupted by the arrival of Stannis Baratheon's army.
Stannis describes Slynt's vile deeds in details, putting Slynt in the worst possible light he can, but comments that if Slynt is chosen - he will accept that.
In the end, he is defeated by the efforts of Samwell Tarly, who persuades Pyke and Mallister to support Jon Snow as a compromise candidate. After being chosen, Jon knows he must deal with Slynt and Thorne, who have done their best to get him killed, for they will undoubtedly undermine him. Jon knows about Slynt's part in his father's downfall, but suppresses his personal feelings, reminding himself that whenever someone joins the Watch - his criminal record is erased clean.
He decides to send Slynt away, and keep Thorne - whom he considers as the more dangerous of the two - close to him. Jon orders Slynt to take command of Greyguard and aid in restoring it, but Slynt refuses his direct order three times - both in private and in public, in an extremely obnoxious and disrespectful manner. Initially, Jon was going to have him hanged, but then commands his men to bring him down - only to reveal that he meant that hanging him was wrong, because his father taught him that " the man who passes the sentence must swing the sword ".
Desperately, Slynt claims that he has friends in King's Landing - unaware that those "friends" are either dead, stripped of power or simply do not care about him. Jon then personally beheads Janos, unknowingly fulfilling Sansa's wish which perhaps has been a foreshadowing of Slynt's fate. Ned Stark's own son beheading Janos has one more layer of narrative resonance in the novels: though the TV show doesn't show it, in the books Janos not only betrayed Ned to his eventual death, but after Ilyn Payne beheaded Ned on the steps of the Great Sept, Janos personally lifted up Ned's severed head by the hair, and proudly held it up to display it to the crowd, even as Ned's blood splattered out of it onto the steps.
It is unclear whether Slynt's death has anything to do with the curse of Harrenhal which has not been confirmed yet, and can be dismissed as a superstition : it has allegedly harmed Lady Whent, Tywin, Amory Lorch, Vargo Hoat, the Mountain and Polliver - all of whom have been physically present at the castle and served as its castellans.
Slynt, however, never set his foot at Harrenhal ever since he received the lord title. Sign In Don't have an account?

Keep your ruin. That was a command , not an offer. Pack your arms and armor, say your farewells, and ride for Greyguard. Give it to one of the fools who cast a stone for you! I will not have it!

The Kingsroad. Lord Snow. Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things. The Wolf and the Lion. The Lord Commander is a rank found in several of the Seven Kingdoms ' institutions. The term may refer to:. In contrast, the leader of the Kingsguard is always called "Lord Commander", though this might simply be because most knights tend to be noble-born.
Even if a commoner is knighted for bravery on the battelfield but was not born noble - as was the case with Ser Duncan the Tall , who was born in the slums of Flea Bottom but later became Lord Commander - being knighted technically promotes a commoner into a "noble". Members of the Kingsguard are supposed to exclusively be knights , and thus even a common-born member such as Ser Duncan would be called "Lord" Commander on the grounds that he is at least a knight.
