In the season 5
finale of â€˜Game of Thronesâ€™,
we bore witness to the most horrific death that has
takenÂ place in the series thus far.
Jon Snow, fan favorite since day 1, was ambushed and
consequently murdered by a group of his supposed
Or was he?
Many fan theories have surfaced since the finale, and most of
them claim that Jon Snow is, in fact, alive.
One of the more popular theories speculates that Jon Snow will
be brought back to life by Melisandre, while another popular theory
predicts that Jon â€˜wargedâ€™
into his direwolf Ghost just before his heart stopped beating.
While both theories seemed fairly convincing, GoT creator George
R.R. Martin has revealed that they are both incorrect.

â€œThose theories couldnâ€™t
be further from the truth,â€ Martin announced in a press
conference held earlier this morning in Belfast, Ireland.
â€œYes, Jon Snow is alive. That should be
pretty obvious to anyone who has actually watched the show. But he
was not resurrected by Melisandre and he did not warg into Ghost.
Thatâ€™s just dumb.â€
When a fan in the audience asked him to elaborate on how Jon
managed to survive the
attack,Â MartinÂ reportedly glared at him in
silence for 5 minutes before revealing an incredible truth
â€œOkay, fine, Iâ€™ll tell you
everything,â€ Martin hissed at the fan.

shouldnâ€™t need to explain this, because if you
had actually watched the show you would have seen it
â€œJon left Castle Black in S5E8 to meet up
with Daenerys in Essos. You literally see him boarding a ship and
leaving, moments after paying a lookalike to cover for

off,â€ Martin shouted at the audience.
â€œThere was even a scene where Jon was wearing
Dothraki armor in an attempt to infiltrate their ranks to find
Daenerys. If you had just watched one episode, one single bloody
episode, you would have seen this!â€

After Martin finished his rant, he went on to say that the 6th
book in the â€˜A Song of Ice and
Fireâ€™ series, â€˜The Winds of
Winterâ€™, would not be releasedÂ until
mid 2018 at the earliest.Â Whether
itâ€™s the book or the T.V. show, one thing is for
certain: Jon Snow is alive after all.
