Kit Harington on his Game of Thrones return: “I know how long I’m a corpse for”

When you stop being a corpse you start being a living, breathing Jon Snow again, right...?


As if the fate of Jon Snow wasn’t confusing enough, Kit Harington’s latest words on his Game of Thrones character seem a little contradictory.


On one hand, Harington sounds pretty unequivocal when he says “Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series”. But when he goes on to let slip, during the same conversation with Time Out, that “I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!”, well, we have to wonder…

After all, many of the theories about how Jon could appear in season six of the show revolve around him being resurrected (possibly by Red Priestess Melisandre who we saw slink back into Castle Black at the end of the last series). So if Harington suggests he’s only a corpse for a certain amount of time, does that mean he will be a living, breathing Jon Snow again after that?!


That of course is the question – we know what we want the answer to be…
