Two months ago, the makers of Game of Thrones shocked their viewers by killing of one of the fan-favorite characters, Jon Snow. The bastard turned Lord Commander of Castle Black has been speculated to be the son of (SPOILER!) Rhaegar Targaryen and (SPOILER) Lyanna Stark by the fans, hence forming the L+R=J theory. Most of them, including myself were shocked to see him stabbed to his death by his own men, and without any clarification from the creators about SnowÃ¢ÂÂs death, the future of the character remained in limbo. Yesterday, a photo of actor Kit Harington posted on Twitter indicated the possibility for the return of Jon Snow, thus enabling the validity of L+R=J theoryÃ¢ÂÂ¦
Subsequently, social media took matters in their own hand and the hope was live again...
Some rejoiced in the news, confirming it is in fact, the return of their beloved characterÃ¢ÂÂ¦.
Some even started speculating the future of the characterÃ¢ÂÂ¦
Some remained skeptical about all the fuss, because at the end of the day, it is G.R.R. Martin we are talking aboutÃ¢ÂÂ¦.
And then, some reacted it in style....
All these responses actually point to the affection people have for the character and this certainly indicates the popularity of Jon Snow and Game of Thrones. Maybe itÃ¢ÂÂs just a publicity stunt, or maybe not. Guess we'll have to wait for an year to have any confirmationÃ¢ÂÂ¦.
