Mum's the word when the word's Jon Snow. Kit Harrington continues to be coy about the return of his HBO character to Game of Thrones Season 6, besides confirming that he's dead for a ducat
We know two sure-fire facts about the status of Kit Harington's Jon Snow on Game of Thrones Season 6. He is dead, and he will come back. Take it or leave it, but not matter what you make of that information, it's exactly what HBO wants you to do. Whatever the nature of that return, we know we can expect a"great twist" in Jon Snow's fate, as Maisie Williams recently teased. Now in a recent interview on BBC Breakfast, Kit Harington himself did nothing but fan these rumours when it was put to him pointedly that he would be in Game of Thrones Season 6, some respect, as Jon Snow. "All I can tell you is Jon Snow is dead," Harington put it pointedly back to his on-air hosts. "And he died at the end of the last season."
This squares with most of the fan theories currently making the rounds. Indeed, few expect Snow to simply have survived the raw knifing scene that had him gasping in a melting puddle left by his own warm blood that seeped into the snow about his lifeless body. As the rest of Westeros comes under increasing danger from all directions in Season 6, Snow will likely reappear in spirit or as part of a well-integrated flash back story arc. Indeed, with the series now overlapping and outpacing the Winds of Winter storyline from the novels, Season 6 could mean the emergence of the White Walkers who have the power to bring Snow from the dead and wreak on the guarded realm. This may also be the season when the higher mysteries are finally understood and Snow is brought back from the dead. After all, if Thoros can resurrect Beric multiple times, there's no reason Melisandre couldn't do the same from her perch at Castle Black. Would winter be quite the same without Snow?
