Jon Snow is alive!

Despite what the cast and crew of Game of Throneshave said about the death of Jon Snow, Sunday's episode titledHomehas confirmed everybody's speculation about the fate of the fan-favorite character.


Those who have seen the latest episode of the hit HBO series have learned that the Lord Commander of the Knight's Watch has been resurrected by the Red Priestess Melisandre.

In an interview with EW, Kit Harrington finally breaks his silence about his struggle to keep a tight lid on the fate of his character. Naturally, the 29-year-old English actor was asked by the showrunners to act behind the camera to protect the twist about Jon Snow in Sunday's episode.

Aside from apologizing about the lies, Harrington told the magazine what he feared most for his character off-cam:

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. Or it would just be, ‘Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I'm doing — or the show is doing — is right.

It's pretty funny how the cast and crew of the show have taken to great lengths to protect the twist about Snow's fate. Despite persistent fans, they have done quite a great job at keeping things secret. As always, the latest episode has kept fans wanting for more episodes. It's so exciting to see what will happen to Jon Snow the rest of the season.

More will be revealed as EW publishes its cover article on Kit Harrington.
