Do not watch, read, scratch or sniff this post before you have watched today’s episode of GOT.
OK, so JON SNOW IS ALIVE.
He breathed again in the final 20 seconds of today's episode of the most popular show in the world (actually, that title belongs to The Big Bang Theory, but we're ignoring that. Intentionally).
Davos, the Onion Knight, finally did what everyone wanted and asked Melissandre (who has put on her go-out face again), to revive Jon Snow. And after cutting his hair (gasp), she did. And he did. And now everything is right with the world.
BUT, that means that the actor who has been playing Jon Snow for 5 seasons LIED to everyone when he said Jon Snow was dead.
Listen to Rosie Waterland and the cast of The Binge podcast discussing this season of Game Of Thrones so far:
He lied, because the producers asked him to. As recently as March, Kit Harington told everyone that he was out of a job due to Snow's unfortunate demise. Here is what he had to say to Time Out London:
Kit Harington: 'Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series.'
Time Out: 'So you didn’t film any new scenes?'
KH: 'I filmed some scenes of me being dead – [jokily] it’s some of my best work.'
TO: 'Do you know what happens in the series or have you lost your privileges?'
