Jon Snow Lives In The First Promo Image For "Game Of Thrones" Season 6


The fate of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) has been the question Game of Thrones fans have been asking since the Season 5 finale in mid-June.

And now, six months later, HBO has released the first promo image for Season 6, featuring a bloody, but SEEMINGLY ALIVE, Jon Snow.


The image first started making the rounds online after appearing on billboards in New York and Los Angeles on Monday morning.

GUYS. It's a really bad picture but OMG JON SNOW BILLBOARD in Hollywood! Is he or isn't he?! #GameofThrones

But it was still hard to believe, considering how many times the Game of Thrones cast and crew (including Harington himself, Maisie Williams, showrunner D.B. Weiss, and director David Nutter) have claimed Jon was really gone for good...

...Despite photos of Harington cropping up in Belfast where the show was shooting.

In the Season 5 finale, Jon was stabbed by Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), Bowen Marsh (Michael Condron), Olly (Brenock O'Connor), and co., but fans have come up with countless theories about how he could come back.

Like... he could've been seriously injured, or he could come back to life courtesy of Melisandre (Carice van Houten), or he could've been reincarnated as his direwolf Ghost.

When asked for confirmation that this poster means Jon is part of Season 6, a representative for HBO said, "That I can't say."

So we'll have to wait until April 2016 to find out.
