Unless you’ve been living under Casterly Rock, you know that Jon Snow was killed off in the Game of Thrones season 5 finale.
…Or was he?
Fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and the HBO series have serious doubts about Snow’s death, and they’ve conjured up some pretty solid fan theories to explain how he could have survived his brutal assassination.
But we may now have some actual, non-conjectured proof that our favorite bastard will return for season 6 after all.
Kit Harington has been recently spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where filming for season 6 of Game of Thrones is currently underway. He was first spotted at the airport in Belfast after disembarking his flight from London, a flight that fellow costar Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar) also was on (as reported by Watchers on the Wall).
Harington was also sniped by The Daily Mail walking around Belfast a few days after he was spotted at the airport, this time with (former?) co star Ben Crompton (who you’ll know as Dolorous Edd, Snow’s Night’s Watch brother).
He’s covering up in a hoodie, but it’s clear that Harington is still rocking his gorgeous mane, which he was contractually obligated to not cut (Also, can we PLEASE talk about those skinny jeans?).
It could be that Harington is in Belfast simply filming scenes where he plays a dead body preparing for a good ol’ fashioned Night’s Watch burning, but if the fan theories do hold any merit (and we hope they do), Harington could be in Belfast for the long run.
But until George R.R Martin releases The Winds of Winter or Game of Thrones season 6 premieres (which will come first? we don’t know), the theories will remain just that… theories.
