Everyone's still debating about the fate of Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) from Game of Thrones after the character's apparent death at the end of the season 5 finale. Chances are this debate is going to rule the internet until the opening episode of the new season, coming out next spring to HBO. Especially since the creators and fellow actors and actresses are doing everything in their power to keep the audience interested and, at the same time, in the darkness about the truth. Emilia Clarke said that there's a 50/50 chance of Snow's survival.
Dan Weiss and David Benioff reportedly will skip this year's Comic-Con in San Diego, thus the fans of the TV show won't get answers from them this summer. To make things worse from the audience's perspective, Kit Harrington will also be missing from the biggest annual geek event, as he joined the cast of the western thriller movie called Brimstone, replacing Robert Pattinson, where he will be reunited with actress Carice van Houten, who plays Lady Melissandre in Game of Thrones.
Kit Harrington has made his name through HBO's TV show, as did Emilia Clarke, now debuting as Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise, and playing the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, who has added more fuel to the fire after she got interviewed by MTV. Clarke remained as mysterious as she could when the talk shifted towards the TV #Series, pressing that she is notorious of being not a good liar, thus when she says she has no idea about the fate of Jon Snow, we should really believe her. However she also added that there's a 50/50 chance of Snow's survival, since there are a couple of characters in the show who have the power to bring back people from the dead.
One of these characters might be Lady Melissandre, which would be the most convenient solution as the priestess has just arrived back at Castle Black before the members of the Night's Watch betrayed their leader. The audience already knows what the God of Light is capable of through his priests and priestesses, and reviving dead men is among of his specialities. The other option would be the use of flashbacks through Brandon Stark's (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) visions, but that would not really serve the story well.
Still, there's hope for Snow's return, especially since last year Harrington signed a three-year deal with Game of Thrones, meaning he has a contract to appear in the final two seasons as well. But of course these kinds of contracts are alive as long as the actors' and actresses' characters. So will Snow survive? Who knows… After all this is Game of Thrones that we're talking about. But this secretive behaviour by the members of the cast and creators alike is more than suspicious. #Games of Thrones
