Since the Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, fans have been in denial about the fact that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was murdered by the men who were supposed to stand beside him — despite the fact that Kit himself has proclaimed the end of his character.
“I’m quite dead. It’s over for Jon Snow — at the very least, he gets to join his family and kin and leave this terrible world behind,” the 28-year-old actor told the New York Daily News.
Conspiracy theories started as soon as the GoT finale was over. They shifted into overdrive recently when Harington was spotted at Wimbledon with long hair, which his Game of Thrones contract insisted that he keep. One of the most popular conspiracies is that Jon Snow may have turned into a warg — perhaps with the help of Melisandre — and would take the form of his dire wolf, Ghost.
This theory could prove to be true thanks to comments made by creator Dan Weiss way back in March. The Huffington Post released a video of Harington, John Bradley (Sam Tarly), Weiss, and co-creator David Benioff during an Oxford Union Game of Thrones panel to promote Season 5.
During the video a fan asked what other character Harington and Bradley would want to play on the series, Harington said, “I’d like to be a warg. I’d like to put myself into a wolf.”
Yes, Jon Snow may have predicted his fate before his “brothers” ever stabbed him.
But that was not the most shocking revelation, it was when Weiss said, “Two words for you: Season 6.”
Now, knowing the secrecy of GoT, Weiss could have been playing with the emotions of his fans. Even star Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) agrees with Harington, that Jon Snow is, in fact, dead.
“I think people are trying to be very positive about this, like, ‘It’s fine. He’s coming back. He’s totally coming back, right? He’s going to come back?’ ” Williams exclusively tells E! News. “I’m like, ‘I don’t think so. I’m very sorry!’ I don’t know, maybe he wanted to keep the hair in the end.”
“We saw him get stabbed like five times in the chest… I think he’s gone. I mean, I could be wrong, but I really don’t think so. And people are like, ‘He’s going to come back as White Walker!’ I’m like, ‘Really, we’d bring back Jon Snow as a White Walker?!’ OK, you can believe what you’d like.”
Find out if Jon Snow is truly dead, turning into a warg, or some other fate when Game of Thrones returns in the spring of 2016.
