Entertainment Weekly’s New Issue Is All About Jon Snow’s Fate on ‘Game of Thrones’ 

If you haven’t watched the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, then you’d better stop right here!

Last night, the second episode of season six premiered offering a whole new onslaught of gruesome deaths and political machinations, but it’s the episode’s ending that’s going to have fans talking for weeks to come.

In the final scenes, the red sorceress Melisandre (Carice van Houten) attempts to bring Jon Snow (Kit Harington) back from the dead. She burns locks of his curly hair and chants. Then, believing she has failed, she and Snow’s comrades leave the room.

Then…Jon comes back to life!

Entertainment Weekly has had an inside look at the challenge facing the show’s creators when attempting to keep the beloved character’s reanimation a secret. Now that the episode has aired, they are releasing their exclusive interview with the cast and crew.

After countless interviews in which Harington said his character is dead and no longer on the show, now he can speak honestly about Snow’s future in Westeros and it turns out this season is pretty important for the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

“It’s a massive season for Jon,” the 29-year-old actor told EW. “It’s his biggest season for him so.”

Also, the British actor has a message for all you diehard Jon Snow fans out there:

“I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I’m glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care.”
