Warning: There are spoiled ahead!
The burning question on every Game of Thrones fan’s mind at the end of the Season 5 finale may have been answered by Jon Snow himself — even if he didn’t intentionally mean to spoil it.
Kit Harington, as reported by the New York Daily News, was seen at Wimbledon yesterday sporting a very familiar look to many Game of Thrones fans. With the Jon Snow locks firmly regrown, and with Season 6 set to shoot, many fans in attendance were quick to point out that Jon Snow may return after all.

Kit Harrington showed up @ Wimbledon w/ his hair unshorn, creating a frenzy. HBO is probably paying him not to cut it. Damn you, #GoT!!!

Kit Harington’s Jon Snow character was famously killed off in the very last scene of Game of Thrones Season 5, when his fellow Night’s Watchmen turned on their now-former leader for helping their enemies, the Wildlings. But many fans and even co-stars like Emilia Clarke believe Jon Snow could return next season.
“If I have to bet, I’d say it’s a 50/50 chance,” Emilia Clarke told MTV News recently when asked about the finale. “There’s some helpful people there who could bring him on back to life.”
Clarke is referring to the nefarious Melisandre, who entered Castle Black just moments before Jon Snow was killed. A dangerous and cunning sorceress, Clarke echoed what many Game of Thrones fans believe will be Snow’s method of re-entry onto the show.
But the show’s producers have remained steadfast that Jon Snow is dead. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly recently, Kit Harington told reporters that the show’s creators, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, told him he wasn’t coming back.
“I had a sit-down with Dan and David, we did the Tony Soprano walk [letting an actor know they’re being whacked]. And they said, ‘Look, you’re gone, it’s done.'”
However, if Kit Harington keeps appearing in public like this, Game of Thrones fans will have a hard time believing it’s true. As one astute Twitter user so elegantly posted recently, Kit Harington has become a walking spoiler.
