    I'm not a reader of the books so if this has been addressed or hinted at forgive me.

    Jon's death and subsequent revival by the faithful of the Lord of Light made sense on many levels. First and foremost it allowed the main protagonist to keep on living. It also fulfilled the Capbellian \(\?\) requirement regarding the hero's journey. Plus it got him out of the Night's Watch.

    But at what cost? I'd like to see that addressed. Magic always demands a sacrifice. Patchy (the guy with a flaming sword) would be a good vehicle to explain the price to be paid.

At this point, the shows have passed the books by a lot. Jon is still dead in the books, so we have no idea that will turn out or if he will lose something of himself in the process. Thoros of Myr is the one resurrecting Beric Dondarion, he would have the most knowledge of this.
