*Warning: Spoilers for 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Walking Dead' Lie Ahead!*

You're probably aware that Game of Thrones has released the promo poster for their upcoming Season 6, causing the Internet to go into meltdown as fans try to decrypt the image of Jon Snow.

We can glean a lot from the image, including of course the fact that Snow is probably alive -- it's difficult to tell from the picture, however it's rare to devote important promotional material to a deceased character. Consequently, we can assume that Jon Snow will be back knowing nothing by Season 6.

This point notwithstanding, Game of Thrones has been cruelly allusive about the fate of the fan-favorite.

Does this remind you of anyone else?

It certainly has some similarities to the incident involving Glenn Rhee from The Walking Dead. You'll remember him as the fan-favorite who fell head-first into a horde of walkers, only for the show to leave two episodes between Glenn "dying" and it being revealed that he miraculously (and slightly unrealistically) survived!

Watch the "death" scene below!

Well, it seems that we aren't the only ones to have identified the connection between these two fan-favorites. In fact, The Walking Dead Twitter page recently sent a tweet aimed at the Game of Thrones Twitter page in what I beg becomes a fight to the death!

Yes, The Walking Dead has thrown some serious shade at Game of Thrones! Both programs are hugely popular and are renowned for killing off beloved fan-favorites, and torturing their fans with unexpected and gruesome deaths.

This Twitter post prompted some fantastic replies from fans who seem amused by the comparison between The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.

This led to further mash-ups between The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.

Needless to say, fans seemed to appreciate the comparison.

After much speculation, we now know that Glenn is alive, and although we're yet to have Jon's revival officially confirmed, it's safe to say that Game of Thrones is going to confirm he's safe and sound by the beginning of Season 6.

It's also a fair point that The Walking Dead only waited a hand-full of episodes before revealing Glenn's status, whereas Game of Thrones is making us wait until April next year!

Have a look at Jon Snow's death scene and let me know what you think!

Clearly the fans are being tortured by the uncertainty, but I'm pretty eager to see a GoT rebuttal!
