For those of you who haven’t seen the “Game of Thrones” Season 5 finale yet, then you should not proceed but if you have been a victim of a wave of spoilers that exploded all over the Internet yesterday, then you are free to read more below. Is Jon Snow REALLY dead?
George R.R. Martin has a knack for killing off main characters and this has always been expected on the show, too. However, it never failed to leave us in shock. The most recent death is Jon Snow who got stabbed multiple times by his men. It was so shocking and none us can still believe that he’s really dead because he can’t die! He can’t! Or can he?
For those who just watch the series and haven’t read the books, unfortunately, Jon Snow’s death really did happen and he did get stab by his men except for Olly who is actually not a character in the book. You’re probably thinking, why is still there a doubt in Jon’s death when it actually happened in the books and now in the series. Well, it’s because GRRM refuses to comment about his death! So there’s a glimmer of hope and the creators of the show may just find a creative way to bring him back.
Here are some of the theories that we’ve gathered all over the Internet within 24 hours of Jon Snow’s death in the “Game of Thrones” season 5 finale:
He Could Live Inside Ghost
Yes, Ghost as in his direwolf. In fact, the last words that Jon uttered before he fell to his death in the books was “Ghost.” So maybe he’ll live through him? Ghost will be a much smarter Direwolf. In fact, Kit Harrington is up for that!
Now that Stannis is dead, of course, Melisandre needs a new champion and she is actually rooting for Jon. With such evil powers, maybe she can bring the dead to life. But if she could do that, wouldn’t she do that to Stannis? Or maybe she finds Jon now more suitable to take over Westeros.
Those are the two most popular theories circulating all over the Internet now. Another thing, though, there are also rumors flying around that Harrington is filming in Belfast. So, yeah maybe he’s still alive in Season 6.
Oh the torture!
