We know nothing, Jon Snow!
So what’s the deal with our fallen Night’s Watch man?
Jon Snow is dead. Or is he? Kit Harington all but confirmed that Jon is back for good while on the promo trail recently: “Let’s just say that
Game Of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while,” he said. “I’ll probably be in my thirties when it’s over.”
That admission, coupled with the fact that he’s been spotted shooting battle scenes ( apparently wearing Stark armour and leading an army comprised of Umbers and other Northern houses), begs the question: how the hell did Jon survive the night of the knives?
There are a few options: first – and most likely, in our estimation – is that Melisandre summons the power of R’hllor and resurrects Jon, much as Thoros of Myr did for the extremely dead Beric Dondarrion.
If resurrection is out, then there’s every chance natural Warg Jon slipped his consciousness into his direwolf Ghost. A quick bit of magic and hey presto, new Jon Snow, although Game Of
Thrones isn’t a show known for its consequence- free sorcery.
Don’t rule out something altogether weirder: maybe the Wall itself saves him somehow, a mixture of ancient magic and proto- cryogenics. Or Wun Wun gives him mouth to mouth.
Whatever happens, we’re irrevocably drawn to the Night’s Watch vow: “Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.” If Jon has died and come back, does that free him from the Watch? Because if it does, well, it’s about to get extremely real in the north of Westeros…
