Harington appears as Jon Snow in the third episode of the second season of Game of Thrones, Dark Wings, Dark Words. Ciarán Hinds plays Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-the-Wall who has united the wildling tribes north of the Wall of Westeros. Having gained the trust of Mance, Jon marches southward toward the Wall with the wildling army. Mance explains that his army is made up of many different groups who have many internal divisions. He says that they are united as they realise that if they remain north of the Wall, the undead creatures that are gathering there will kill them all.
