So in case you missed it, the latest trailer for Game Of Thrones, Season 6 dropped last night, and it's fair to say it was a hit; the magic, the mystery, the (interesting choice of) music, and Melisandre's boobs. Again. The greatest enigma we were left with at the end of last season of course was the true fate of fan favorite Jon Snow, who perished in front of our very eyes — or did he? Watch closely in the trailer below:

Yes, Jon makes a standard appearance in the opening of the trailer, lying on the ground, doing what corpses do, and that appears to be his participation over. But wait! A little later on in the clip (at around 1:16), is that Jon we see on the Boltons' battlefield?! You have to be quick but if you pause it at EXACTLY the right moment, you can see him:

Is this Jon?
Is this Jon?

OK, it's not the greatest quality, but see those luscious locks?! It certainly looks like Jon Snow, and if you're still not convinced, take note of what he's wearing and compare it to this sneaky shot of him on set in Saintfield, Northern Ireland:

It appears our beloved bastard has shed his black furs and is back to representing House Stark in that renowned leather armor. And it makes sense. Fans aplenty have speculated that if Jon were to be resurrected by Melisandre, he would probably be freed from his oath to the Night's Watch. Just look at this sequence that comes right before the battle scene appearing to show just that:

This trailer comes just days after Kit Harington himself insisted to Time Out that the only reason he was on set was to film scenes as a corpse:

“I filmed some scenes of me being dead. I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series. It’s some of my best work [about his scenes as a frozen corpse]. I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!”

Whatever, Kit. How do you explain the Stark armor? If it is Jon on that white horse, he doesn't even look a bit dead. Considering the angle of the trailer, you might say that the producers want us to think he's dead, but when did the fans ever really listen to them anyway? Naturally, Twitter has blown up as a result:

Even Sky Atlantic, the UK's official Game Of Thrones broadcaster, posted a rather cryptic tweet quoting Melisandre:

And Harington's cast mates aren't convinced he's truly gone, either, so it looks like the jury's out. We're just going to have to wait until the season premiere to know for sure, and I think I speak for all of us when I say that April 24 can't come soon enough.

Do you think Jon Snow is back?
