As you already know, Jon Snow is alive. He has returned to the land of the living with a little help from Melisandre. The big reveal took place during Sunday’s episode and followed months of speculation.
Following the episode that saw Snow come back to life, Kit Harington, who plays the beloved character, did an interview with EW and opened up about having to keep the show’s biggest secret to date. He also apologized for having to lie about Jon Snow’s fate every time someone asked him bout it. In fact, that was the first thing that he had to say.
‘Sorry!‘, Kit said. ‘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 reaction to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I’m doing, or the show is doing, is right‘, he added.
