With Season 6 of Game of Thrones premiering in just a few months, fans of the show far and wide are waiting with bated breath to finally find out the fate of Jon Snow.
Naturally, HBO has been stringing us along with promotional materials featuring clips from past seasons and the bloodied face of our Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.
On Sunday, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the series, appeared at the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards where she was awarded the title of Young British Performer of the Year. In addition to talking about her work on Doctor Who and The Falling, the young actress spoke to The Upcoming and teased GoT fans that the upcoming season will include a "twist" regarding Kit Harington's character.
“I feel so mean because I speak to people and they’re all like ‘Jon Snow, is he back?’ and it’s like really heartbreaking because people are like ‘yeah, but he’s coming back though?’ It’s a great twist but I can’t say he’s going to be alive.”
The way Williams says that he won't be "alive" certainly makes it sound as if Jon Snow will definitely be a little worse for wear, but hopefully he has still found a way to stick around.
I guess at this point, much like Jon Snow, we know nothing. But that doesn't mean we can't speculate a bit. My money goes to the R+L=J theory, which would mean that when the Night's Watch burns his body, his Targaryen blood would allow him to be somehow revived by the flames.
We've written a fair bit (an understatement) about what we think will happen to Jon Snow and on some of our favorite fan theories out there. To read more, check out these articles!
