“Game of Thrones” fans continue to debate if Jon Snow (Kit Harington) will be dead or alive when Season 6 premieres later this month. HBO revealed in the premiere episode synopsis on Thursday that Snow is dead. However, it's possible the premium cable service could be trying to mislead fans. While his fate won't be known for sure until the show airs, a new clip has revealed that although he might be dead, he still has some support at The Wall.
Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth on the show, stopped by “Conan” Thursday night to talk about “Game of Thrones.” Following his interview with Conan O’Brien, Cunningham revealed a new Season 6 clip that showed another battle going on at the wall.
In the clip, Davos grabs Jon Snow’s sword Longclaw and prepares to fight off Master-at-Arms Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale) and a few of his men. Davos is locked in a room with the body of Jon Snow and men of the Night’s Watch who remain loyal to Snow. Thorne has men begin breaking down the door to where Snow and Davos are. As the door starts to be broken apart, Davos and his men, along with Snow’s dire wolf Ghost, are ready to fight.
Davos can’t be happy with the Night’s Watch turning on Snow. He and Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) always had respect for Snow and to be killed by his own men likely is what has Davos getting ready to fight back. The clip cuts off just before both sides come to blows, but it should be interesting to see how it plays out when the show returns.
You can watch the full clip below:
The clip seemed to favor the theory that Snow will not survive the vicious attack on him in the Season 5 finale. Jon’s body was laid out on a table and Davos could be the next man to carry Longclaw. However, for those that do believe Snow is alive, there still is hope. It wasn’t clear why they were locked in the room with Snow’s body and why they were gearing up to fight. Could it be they were keeping the Night’s Watch away from Snow so he could be revived? We’ll find out soon enough.
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 premieres April 24 on HBO at 9 p.m. EDT. Do you think Jon Snow is alive or dead? Sound off in our comments section below!
