The Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones left many of us fans clutching our pillows in utter dismay and horror because (SPOILER ALERT) Jon Snow was dead. Not since the Red Wedding had my emotions been so trampled on and destroyed by an episode of television, and it's safe to say that most of the fandom cried along with me. There have been a few months of speculation since that finale, and with rumors of Kit Harington being spotted in Belfast filming, I held on to hope. But on Monday, the official GoT Twitter account released the first teaser poster for Game of Thrones Season 6, which premieres in April, with a close-up of a bloody Jon Snow! Naturally, the moment I saw this, my mind spun into an uncontrolled stream of consciousness, the thoughts passionate and confused.
Sure, I was going to miss the character of Jon Snow, brooding every week on my television screen, but missing Kit Harington and his face is another story and one I don't want to know. I subscribed to all kinds of Jon Snow resurrection theories, and although I never read the books, I learned about the possibilities of Jon Snow NOT being dead.
It seems like Game of Thrones writers love to toy with our emotions, and that was definitely the case with the new teaser. Here are the thoughts that occurred when I saw Jon Snow on the Season 6 poster. There are a lot of them.
2. Oh my god, help!
How is this happening? What is happening? I need answers!
3. IS HE ALIVE?
Say it's so!
4. Wait... is Jon Snow a zombie?
Say it ain't so.
5. No, he's too pretty to be a zombie
His skin looks too good.
6. He's definitely a Targaryen
Rise, Jon Snow. Rise!
7. His hair looks amazing
Even near death, he pulls it off.
8. Jon Snow is still so sad
Cheer up, you're alive!
9. ...But he shouldn't be because he is resurrected
10. But how is he alive?
11. Was it Melisandre working her magic?
I know her tricks.
12. I want Jon Snow's magic
13. Why is his face covered in blood?
I don't like seeing him hurt.
14. He obviously fought back
That's how he got all bloody, right?
15. He IS alive!
If I believe it enough, it'll be true!
16. Did he become a white walker?
He doesn't look like one.
17. WHERE IS APRIL? HURRY!
Obviously, a lot of emotions are happening. I need to relax to make it to April 2016. See you there, Jon Snow.
