Game of Thrones: 8 Plausible Ways Jon Snow Can Be in Season 6
In what some will likely view as a confirmation that Kit Harington’s alter ego
survive that season-ending stabbing, HBO on Monday released a teaser poster that features a bloodied — but apparently still alive — Jon Snow. This represents the premium cabler’s first public “statement” about the character’s ambiguous fate.
Harington’s co-stars, however, have not been as silent. At the Emmys in September, Maisie Williams told me point-blank that Snow is “dead.”

Game of Thrones: 8 Theories About Jon Snow in Season 6
So, they’re given up saying he’s dead then??
I’m sure that attack killed him…he did die BUT he will be resurrected.
Well, now that they’re actually hinting at him being alive, I’m starting to think he probably is dead. Or he’ll be back as a white walker. I feel like they’d only do this if they wanted to really subvert out expectations.
I try to avoid being that “Book” person – and it’s usually easier to do at this point in the two planes because the show has caught up to the book. However, there is an awful lot in the last book that foreshadows the outcome of Jon Snow even as he closes that book lying in a pool of his blood at the wall the way he does in the show. Now, without Winds of Winter published, no one knows if that’s all good fodder to throw you off course or not – I don’t think that’s really GRRM’s way. He’s fine throwing a curve ball but he doesn’t seem to purposely screw with you by leading you down one path and then puling the rug out in a “I made you think this but it’s not so.” His plot twists usually don’t do a 180 from the groundwork he’s laid and the show usually stays fairly faithful to the big picture of the story. All that to say, I’m see the poster as affirming the fan theories that went against the party line of “dead is dead.” Dead may be dead, but death is not forever…not always anyway. I don’t think B & D would kill off a character (a main one at that) that survives in the books and I’m about 99.999999% sure the groundwork has been laid in both formats that Jon is resurrected in some form.
I think HBO has pretty much decided to just give up trying to convince us. :) The poster makes it hard to tell at first if he’s upright standing or if it’s a different angle of his beaten body on the ground. The page’s official Facebook header is a wider angle shot and clearly he’s upright. Snow’s not dead…well maybe Snow is. Jon’s not. Stark? Snow? Who cares. He’s back.
Looks to me like that’s his corpse hanging from something, probably as a warning.
Can’t wait for the new season come April. No one will ever know about the fate of Jon Snow and time will tell if this should be the beginning of his resurrection.
Of course Jon won’t stay dead….this fakeout is only second to TWD’s Glenn fakeout.
I love that this poster has zero words on it to identify the show in question. That’s when you know your status has elevated from good show to television phenomenon.
Jon is not supposed to survive. Jon is supposed to die and come back. Just like the comet goes around the Sun, “passing through the underworld” and returning at the beginning of book six in the Barristan chapter. Jon is also a Corn King, a king sacrificed in dire times and it would make for a very poor sacrifice if he didn’t actually die. It’s all much more complicated than this but there’s a brief summary. George rooted these books deeply in mythology.
I do hope the show doesn’t make the mistake of having Jon not actually die because I’d stake a foot on the fact that he is very much dead in the books but will be resurrected.
I think most when saying “He lives” aren’t assuming he survives the attack specifically. I think most (at least in the on and off line conversations I’ve seen/been apart of ) assume he dies and is resurrected. At least his body is resurrected. My own thought is that Jon knee-jerk wargs into Ghost – although the show never really covered his ability to do so like the novels do. And then, once his spirit is safely tucked into the beast, his body (and subsequently his spirit returning to it) are brought back by the red priestess who has been eyeballing Jon in a “hmm, maybe I jumped the gun. Maybe you’re Azor after all. Or not. Maybe the show never goes into Warg-Jon territory. Whatever it is – the showrunners et al, were very clear “Dead is dead.” What they failed to explain is that in this GOT universe “Death, in the right hands, is not irreversible.”
he better be back, i love the show but its so depressing and there is no point, no point at in Killing John snow.
Jon Snow is coming back there’s no if’s ands or buts If Glenn on TWD is back so should Jon!!!
To be fair he doesn’t look all that alive in the poster. Eyes closed, head down, are we sure that’s not just a corpse? Of course, it means there’s more to his story (which almost no one ever doubted) but doesn’t immediately scream ‘he lives!’ imo…
From now till mid/late this july he has been spotted in Belfast how many times, i don’t think it takes 4 or 5 months to film a funeral scene, and also, this is the biggy, he was photographed on set of that battle they have been filming in september wearing Stark armour. So there u go.
Doesn’t mean he’s alive at all. Could mean that his death will be what drives the story next season.
Perhaps “Jon Snow” is dead….when he is resurrected, he comes back using as Jon Stark.
“using the name Jon Stark”…I dunno what happened there.
How can you say he’s alive with only that image ?
