Snowpiercer Season 3 references Game of Thrones with a Ned Stark joke




Game of Thrones was one of the biggest shows of the 21st century, and has since become a pop culture icon. It finds its way being referenced in all walks of life, be it other shows, films, sports, politics, etc. Game of Thrones stars have also made their presence quite firm in the acting industry, and some have even grabbed some of the biggest roles Hollywood has to offer. Recently, the fantasy epic was referenced in the most cunning way in Snowpiercer, which just so happens to star Game of Thrones alum Sean Bean.


Sean Bean starred as Lord Eddard Stark (Ned) in the first season of Game of Thrones. He now portrays the devious Mr. Wilford in Snowpiercer season 3. In Snowpiercer season 3, episode 3, “The First Blow,” Wilford defends his 1,023-car-long super train from his archnemesis, Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs). In this clash, Layton finally gets the better of Wilford and takes back control of the train. But as Layton and his team aboard their 10-car pirate train prepared to strike, it was Bess Till (Mickey Sumner) who cracked a sly Game of Thrones joke acknowledging the infamous demise of Bean’s Game of Thrones character, Lord Eddard Stark.

When Wilford’s lover, Miss Audrey (Lena Hall), who is Layton’s prisoner, asks Bess, “It’s him [Wilford], isn’t it?” Till replies, “You’ll know it’s him when his head is in a pike.” No one who has watched Game of Thrones can possibly miss the reference – and one that sparked countless reaction videos and memes on social media.
