Game of Thrones cast members are in Belfast shooting the next season of the show. Images of Kit Harington smoking a cigarette with GoT pals quickly sparked “Jon Snow lives” posts on social media by fans. The shocking final scene in the finale that included a massive amount of blood pouring out of Snow’s body definitely left the Night’s Watch Lord Commander looking deader than the proverbial doornail.

Perhaps the Lord of Light uses Melisandre, the red woman, to bring Jon Snow back to life. She rode into Castle Black shortly before Snow died and has been known to harness her powers to return folks from the dead. Comments from showrunners stating “Jon Snow is deader than dead” do not necessarily rule out the possibility of his life being restored by supernatural means.
Kit Harington and Eddison Tollet were reportedly spotted at the Belfast City Center in recent days. Snow could have just traveled to the filming to hang out with his pals or is being filmed for flashback scenes. Basically, it is too soon to cheer and chant, “Jon Snow lives,” Game of Thrones fans.
Game of Thrones creators and cast members were reportedly a bit cagey when asked about the fate of Jon Snow during a Comic-Con panel discussion earlier this month. Jokes made about the characters death did not seem to squash the speculation about the return of the faithful watcher on the wall.
Do you think Jon Snow is alive in Westeros, and he will return from the dead in the next season of Game of Thrones or will the news spark tears in the eyes of fans when his fellow watchers on the wall honor their fallen comrade and bid farewell in traditional Crow fashion?
