Jon Snow is not dead.
With the release of the new poster coming out for the HBO series, Game of Thrones, we witness a bloodied Snow filling the entire space. Is this us looking at the corpse of our beloved hero or one of the biggest spoilers to hit the web?
We know that Kit Harington has been keeping his mane, and it’s a known fact that he’s coming back for the next season. There are also a billion fan theories that are going to completely fall apart if he dies. Why go back to the wall if our dear hero dies? Who will take the place of “ice” in the Song of Ice and Fire? Who will be the new focus of all our fanfic if he goes away?
So how does he get out of this? The series started out firmly placed in reality, but as time has gone by, more magic has started to seep into the world. Bit by bit, things that we haven’t been able to explain have started happening like Bran’s shifting into the conscious of other beings. Could this have carried over to his brother?
The last line of the chapter when Jon is attacked by all of his brothers is “…He never felt the fourth knife. Only the cold…” Could this be an indication that he’s breathed his last breath or managed to switch over to something else in the cold of the forest? Maybe he’s a part of Ghost for now until they can fix his body.
