HBO Has Finally Settled Jon Snow's Fate
Is Jon Snow really dead? According to HBO, he is. Say it ain't so.

In an announcement that had every sane viewer of Game of Thrones launching into an uncontainable, gleeful flash mob set to the tune of the theme song, HBO just announced that Jon Snow is dead. I repeat, Westeros' most insufferably soulless fuccboi is DEAD.
HBO just sent every relevant publication a rather verbose and slightly cryptic press release indicating "Jon Snow's bloody fate," but the official synopsis for the upcoming season premiere, titled "The Red Woman," reads "Jon Snow is dead." Also, "Daenerys meets a strong man" and "Cersei sees her daughter again," but who cares about that other stuff with that zinger of a reveal?
There are some fan theories swirling around the ever-growing toilet called the Internet that everyone's least favorite GoT bastard's eyes turned blue when he died, and therefore he might be coming back as a White Walker, but we firmly believe that he is dead and is staying dead. Which means Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) are free to go and be gorgeous and grossly romantic somewhere far away from our televisions.
Then again, this is likely another instance of HBO trolling fans, as it did with the first season six teaser, and in the trailer, and in the posters, and by (probably) strategically planting Harrington at a filming location in Belfast.
