Game Of Thrones spoilers have been few and far between and everyone is dying to know if Jon Snow will return or if he is, in fact, really dead. Actor Kit Harrington spoke out about the fate of his character recently and gave fans no closure on the subject.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Kit Harrington revealed that he will actually appear in Game of Thrones Season 6, but that he’ll appear as a corpse. Kit says that Jon Snow is dead and that he is not in the new season as anything other than his dead body.
“I filmed some scenes of me being dead. Look, I’m not in the show anymore. I’m definitely not in the new series.”
While some fans took this to mean that Jon Snow is absolutely dead and never coming back other than a glimpse of his dead body in Season 6, other Game of Thrones enthusiasts think there is something fishy going on.
As many Game of Thrones viewers know, HBO has kept so much of Season 6 under wraps. In fact, the network has even refused to let the media screen any of the episodes before their air dates, which means that spoilers will be kept to a bare minimum now and likely throughout the course of the season. For those who love spoilers, it is going to be a long and probably action-packed, shocking season as they watch the fates of their favorite characters unravel before them.
Speculation and theories have been talked about online among fans. Could Jon Snow return as a White Walker? It’s possible, as he’s been stabbed to death, and so far we’ve seen no one dispose of his body.
Will Jon actually be nursed back to health during Game of Thrones Season 6? Could someone take his body and we won’t see it again until possibly Season 7, or is Jon Snow simply dead like so many other members of his family, father Ned Stark, step-mother Catelyn Stark, and brother Rob Stark?
Although Jon Snow may be the latest member of the Stark family to bite the dust, cast member Ian McShane, whose role has yet to be confirmed, says he plays a character who will have a big role, and possibly bring a Stark back from the grave.
“I bring back a much-loved character who everybody thinks is dead.”
Wow! Did Ian McShane just drop the biggest Game of Thrones Season 6 spoiler yet? It’s possible. Could his character bring back Jon Snow or one of his family members?
Fans of the books know that one member of the Stark family does return from beyond the grave, but since spoilers are being kept on the lockdown level of a maximum security prison, it’s hard to say or even speculate on who could be dying, returning, or even moving their storyline forward in the new season.
Meanwhile, the brand new Game of Thrones Season 6 full trailer was just released, and it has everyone talking. In the trailer, Jon Snow is seen lying in a pool of blood, Cersei and Jaime Lannister want to rise above the pain of their past, Dany is looking to be at her lowest, and it seems to show someone with a dead body (possibly Rob Stark?), as well as so much more drama.
Game of Thrones Season 6 looks to be the best season of the HBO series yet, and fans really have no idea what to expect thanks to the lack of spoilers. However, they’ll be tuning in on April 24 to find out what the new season has in store for all their favorite characters, including Jon Snow. Watch the trailer below!
