Harington appears as Jon Snow in the fifth episode of the third season of Game of Thrones, Kissed by Fire. Rose Leslie plays Ygritte, a young redheaded female wildling warrior in the army of Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-the-Wall. Jon is questioned by the wildlings forming an advance party that plan to scale the Wall of Westeros and attack the Night’s Watch stronghold Castle Black from the south. He overstates the strength of the castle’s defenses, saying it is manned by 1,000 men, when the real number is closer to 300. Ygritte leads Jon into a cave, and the two have sex.
