Even if you don't watch Game of Thrones, you probably know that something happened to Kit Harington's Jon Snow during the Season 5 finale. You've probably heard a lot of talk about whether or not he is returning. Well, SPOILER ALERT, he died! The actor is confident his character is very much dead. And others involved with the show keep pushing that point home. But his absence at this year's Comic-Con is just the first clue that he might still be alive, or will get resurrected in Game of Thrones Season 6. It's been tradition for fallen Game of Thrones cast members to show up at Comic-Con a few months later to say good-bye to fans. Kit Harington is not being given that opportunity. Sure, maybe there are scheduling issues, but add the fact that George R.R. Martin has also teased that Jon Snow maybe didn't die in the books, and you have a lot of speculation. Now, in an interview with MTV, star Emilia Clarke is the first cast member to hint that he may be coming back.
Emilia Clarke also admits that she knows absolutely nothing about Game of Thrones Season 6. She is horrible at telling lies and keeping secrets when it comes to plot spoilers, so producers have shared nothing with her. But she goes onto claim that there is a 50/50 chance that Jon Snow will live to see another day. She explained the following in her MTV interview.
"Looking at the social media reactions, I get very scared. So I don't do that. But I read the script. I cried. I took Kit out for numerous drinks. I was like, 'What the...What the...' You're leaving me? You're abandoning us? There's a reason why...They know that I can't lie very well. Seriously. I can say honestly I have no idea what is happening. I have no idea what is going to happen. I really don't know. I don't know. If I had to bet, I'd say there is a 50-50 chance. There are some helpful people there. They can bring him back on to life. But if it means I'm that much closer to getting to the throne...Then...Hey, okay!"
Referencing the 'helpful people', she means Melisandre and her quick return to the Wall, which seemed awfully convenient in light of Jon Snow's death. The red priestess does have magical resurrection powers and it seems likely that a character like Jon Snow won't stay dead for long. What do you think? Is Jon Snow dead? Or is it all a ruse?
