The worst kept secret in television is that Kit Harington is returning to Game of Thrones and that his character, Jon Snow, isn’t dead. Or, maybe he’s technically dead, but he’s coming back to life, either as himself or something else. I dunno. Read the theories. Everyone knows this. This is as obvious as knowledge that the world is round. The promos are playing it up. All the other cast members wink so hard when they talk about Jon Snow being dead that they’ve actually managed to blink their eyes out of socket. People have seen Kit Harrington in airports heading toward Game of Thrones sets. He’s been seen filming.
JON SNOW IS NOT DEAD.
So, come on, Harington, give it up, bro. Who do you think you’re fooling?
From the BBC:
“I think anyone who wants to know what happens in season six has to wait until it comes out. All I can tell you is Jon Snow is dead. He died at the end of last season…. It’s going to be an exciting season. So I’m led to believe.”
To Digital Spy:
“I was hoping that there would be an outcry of ‘why?’ and ‘oh god, no, no’ rather than ‘thank god’. That was the right reaction as far as I was concerned! People didn’t want me to die, but he’s dead. So there you go, everyone has to get used to it… I haven’t done Thrones in a while. I had quite a lot of time off last year. I’ve been taking it easy. And relaxing. When I realised I was doing this, I had a few months to prepare for it, and something like this takes some working through before even getting into the rehearsal room.”
Shut up, Jon Snow. You know nothing.
