Jon may rise from the dead

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

GAME of Thrones fans are latch­ing onto a months old in­ter­view with the show’s run­ners that seems to re­veal a cer­tain char­ac­ter could be re­turn­ing.

Speak­ing at a round­table at the Ox­ford Union in March, GoT’s Dan Weiss and David Be­nioff al­luded that pop­u­lar char­ac­ter Jon Snow could be re­turn­ing to sea­son six of the show de­spite be­ing killed off at the end of sea­son five.

Ac­tor Kit Har­ring­ton, who played the pop­u­lar char­ac­ter, also at­tended the round­table and was asked by fans what he would like to see his char­ac­ter do in the up­com­ing sea­sons. “I’d like to be a warg,” he said. “I’d like to put my­self into a wolf.” Weiss then im­me­di­ately replies: “Two words for you: sea­son six”.

Snow was stabbed to death in the sea­son five fi­nale but fans have been spec­u­lat­ing that the Lord Com­man­der could re­turn to the show in other forms, such as in the mind of an an­i­mal.

Har­ring­ton, how­ever, has been more ab­so­lute about a pos­si­ble re­turn, say­ing last month, “I’m dead. I’m not com­ing back next sea­son.”

Maisie Wil­liams, who plays Arya Stark, has also been more pes­simistic about a re­turn of her for­mer co- star.

“We saw him get stabbed a lot in the chest, like, I think that’s pretty clear,” she said. “If it makes you feel bet­ter, then yes there’s hope but ... there’s no hope.”

And yet Har­ring­ton was spot­ted this week at Wim­ble­don sport­ing his usual Jon Snow long hair.
