Kit Harrington: Shooting Movie During Game of Thrones Season 6 Filming! Does This Confirm the Death of Jon Snow?

by at .

Sorry if you're pissed about the spoiler in the headline, but come on...it's been over a week since Jon Snow was "killed" in Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 10, and almost 4 years since his Night's Watch brothers gave him the Julius Caesar treatment in George R.R. Martin's books.

If you still haven't heard the news, we're guessing you're not exactly a diehard, but feel free to tell us how wrong we are in the comments. 

Jon Snow Glares

Anyway, Jon Snow is dead. Or maybe we should say "dead," as it's hard to imagine a character who's so crucial to GoT's central storyline could really be gone for good.

There are many fan theories as to how Jon will return (as a vengeful White Walker; as the spirit of a direwolf that communicates with Bran, in an animated Hogwarts painting as part of a Harry Potter-GoT crossover), but thus far, little is known about the fate of the 998th Lord Commander.

While it may be a while before we find out how Jon Snow returns to team up with Dany and Tyrion to takeover the Iron Throne with the help of some newly-trained dragons (You have your theories; we have ours.), we do now have an idea of when that might happen... and, sadly, it probably won't be until the show's final season.

GoT generally starts filming in July, and actor Kit Harington just signed on to replace Robert Pattinson in the film Brimstone, which will shoot for most of this summer.

Yup. Looks like if we're to see any Snow next season, it won't be until the very end. 

On the plus side, Brimstone co-stars GoT's Carice Van Houten, so maybe she and Kit can use their time on set to rehearse the scene where Melisandre brings Jon back to life.

Of course, this is all just wild speculation. If the show has taught us anything over the years, it's that when it comes to Jon Snow - we truly know nothing.
