So, naturally, spoilers exist ahead for those who haven’t yet caught up with last weekend’s Game of Thrones which decidedly answered the question of Jon Snow’s ultimate fate. Or if you haven’t been on the internet at all in the past week. Or turned on television. Or talked to other humans. So, yeah, ***spoiler alert.***
In last week’s Game of Thrones, red priestess Melisandre laid the healin’ hands on Jon Snow, and he came back to life. Finally.
This development was a surprise to almost no one. We all were collectively holding our breath to discover when exactly it would happen. The question remains as to what kind of Jon Snow will return, and what impact, if any, the highly anticipated resurrection would have on the Emmy race. If there has been any watershed moment for actor Kit Harington, then this is his time. More so now than ever before, he is the face of Game of Thrones. His is the character on everyone’s lips. His death caused the internet to rise up and push buzz for the series into the stratosphere, resulting in the series’ first Drama Series win at last September’s Emmy awards. Added to that, Harington co-starred in Andy Samberg’s well received faux doc 7 Days in Hell. Harington showed he knew more than Jon Snow. He had a sense of humor too.
What will Emmy make of Kit Harrington’s second chance in the Game?
