Whose Hands Are On Jon Snow In The 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Trailer? There Are A Few Explanations — VIDEO
The first thought I had when watching the new Game of Thrones trailer (after the obvious: that was so fast, how am I supposed to know what's going on?!) was, who dares to put their hands on dead Jon Snow? Get your filthy mitts off him!... Unless, of course, the plan is to save his life, in which case I say, keep on keeping on, friend.
The trailer did a very good job of making us all very, very, aware that our favorite bastard was dead. They did this by showing his dead body not once, not twice, but thrice. When the trailer started out with Ser Davos' voice saying "He's gone," I was still unconvinced –– I mean, yeah, there's a lot of red blood on that white snow, but whatever. Then they backed that up with two more dead Jons –– one with some mystery hands on him, and one with him chilling (still quite dead) next to Ghost, I started to get a little more nervous. It's all quite mysterious.
But, even more than that, I wanted to know most whose unworthy hands were gracing the beautiful brow of GoT's noblest dude (besides Ned Stark, may he rest in peace)? It's hard to tell if the hand belongs to a man or woman because the room is super dark and the clip is so short you almost miss it the first time around. But, we're all smart folks, so let's do some sleuthing. Let's consider the people hanging out at Castle Black during the event.
1. Ser Davos Seaworth
We already know he's with Jon Snow at the end of the trailer — so maybe those are just his hands right before he takes Jon's sword?
Homegirl was at Castle Back at the end of Season 5, and was all sad and stuff because she sacrificed Shireen for a battle she didn't win. Maybe she's trying to save Jon as some sort of penance/because he's royal and she's got a huge royal-blood thing.
Olly probably feels bad for his treachery and is just giving his buddy a final goodbye. Thanks for nothing, Olly.
4. Some Other Member Of The Night's Watch
Stand down, you red-handed traitors!
Of course, all we can do is speculate. We won't know who's putting their hands on Jon until April 24, when GoT premieres. I legitimately can't wait.
