(Warning: Spoilers ahead for those not yet caught up on Game of Thrones…)
Game Of Thrones fans were all in shock at the end of season 5 when it appeared that the brothers of the Night’s Watch had fatally stabbed their commander, Jon Snow. Taking it one step further, everyone involved with the show, including actor Kit Harington, were adamant that this was the end for the beloved character. Jon Snow was dead, end of story.
Or is it? Because The Daily Mail seems to have photographs that prove otherwise. They have posted the following photos online, which show Harington on set in Belfast, where season 6 just happens to be filming. Check them out below:
The main thing to take from these photos, besides the fact that Jon Snow is actually there, is the fact that he is also no longer wearing the black of the Night’s Watch. This either means that he has been brought back from the dead and is no longer held to his oath (“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.”), or we’re dealing with a flashback. If we were putting money on it, mine would be on the former.
Whether you watch the show, read the books or both, the one thing that was almost always a certainty was that Jon Snow would somehow survive. (What’s the point of having Melsandre and her magic if they’re not going to use it?) Snow’s one of the foundations of the story, and although George R.R. Martin has no problem killing people off left and right, I have a feeling that this character in particular has a bigger part to play in all of this. There are plenty of theories out, there. Let’s just hope that at least one of them is correct and that it’s not all just wishful thinking on our part.
Season 6 of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO in 2016.
