Remember in the season finale of Game of Thrones when Jon Snow died? You remember. Then remember everyday since then, when the Internet observed actor Kit Harrington's every little move and speculated wildly about what it means regarding Jon Snow's deadness or aliveness? (I'm including myself in that, obviously.)
This week, there's a new theory arguing that Jon Snow isn't actually dead. And it's a lot more compelling than his haircut.
According to GoT fan site Watchers on the Wall, Kit Harington has been spotted in Belfast, Ireland. You know, the place in Northern Ireland where Game of Thrones is filmed.

He was even on the same flight to Belfast as Jaqen H'ghar (or at least someone wearing his face), and filming for the next season is supposed to start this week. I mean...you don't exactly have to be a Red Priestess to see what's going to happen.
As Watchers on the Wall acknowledges, there could be reasons for Harington to be in Belfast even if Jon Snow is planning to stay dead forever. But they're not likely.
Is it possible Harington is there to simply film a funeral/play a dead body? Technically. But considering how many visits he's had to Belfast in the past couple months of pre-production, I find it very difficult to believe. Harington has also refused to take photos with any fans in Belfast recently, according to several Twitter mentions.
Well, I think we can all agree that Jon Snow is as good as warged into a wolf's body until Melisandre uses blood magic to resurrect him. But I will continue to enjoy the straight up lies that Kit Harington is probably contractually obligated to tell for the next year.
