Kit Harington Is Really, Really Sorry He Lied To You About Jon Snow's Fate

Yeah ... spoilers.

If you're a "Game of Thrones" fan, you probably know what happened at the end of the season 6's second episode last night.


To quickly recap, Ser Davos finally asked Melisandre the question we have been wanting to ask her since last year. To paraphrase the situation, he walked into the red priestess' room and asked plainly, "Umm, you think you can bring Jon Snow back to life?"

Good thing someone is thinking in Westeros.

Anyway, after some convincing, she finally agrees and performs her magic on the still-dead Jon Snow.

At first nothing happens, but bringing someone back from the dead, we guess, takes more than one millisecond. So, everyone sadly walks out the room in a state of severe disappointment. 

Once everyone leaves, Snow's wolf, Ghost, wakes up and looks at the still-deceased Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.

This is just a theory, but it is unclear if Snow is in a fact a warg like Rickon, but it seems as though he was able to transfer over to Ghost before his human body perished. If true, it looks as though Snow was alive the entire time in the body and mind of Ghost.

Either way, the loyal wolf or Snow himself, looks over to the dead body and then — MAGIC!

Not only are we finally relieved to have our Lord Commander back, so was the man who plays Snow himself.

While all of us not named Obama had to wait until last night to find out, Entertainment Weekly was in on it the whole time, working on a secret cover issue with Kit Harington.

During their interview — which you can catch a clip of below — Harington apologized to everyone for lying to them for an entire year.

The actor said, "'Sorry! I'd like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care. Or it would just be, 'Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I'm doing, or the show is doing, is right." 

All is forgiven, Snow. Now, go grab Longclaw and get back to it!
