‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Teaser Poster Teases Jon Snow’s Return

Game of Thrones Season 6 Jon Snow Poster

After months of swearing Jon Snow is dead (HBO President Michael Lombardo said “Dead is dead is dead. He be dead.”), the first teaser poster released for season six of the HBO series Game of Thrones features none other than Kit Harington. Sure, we don’t see his eyes which means they could now be blue. And it’s possible this is a poster of a dead Jon Snow who will not arise in any other form – or under any other name – in the upcoming sixth season. But why would the creative minds behind the series, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, release a Jon Snow poster if he’s not involved in the upcoming season? The poster plays into speculation that he’s not dead or if he is, he will be reborn. It appears with this poster they’re conceding that Harington is back on the show for the new season, which we already knew as he’s been spotted on the set.

Some will argue the poster could be Jon Snow dead in the snow, lying on his back. But, the angle of his head isn’t right for that position. Plus, what would be the point of Melisandre journeying to the Wall if it wasn’t to resurrect Jon Snow? Unfortunately, we won’t know any of the answers until April 2016, but at least now HBO has provided proof Kit Harington will be part of season six in some form.
