Be still our hearts! Emilia Clarke says Jon Snow might be coming back to 'GoT'
Still need a spoiler alert? It’s been 11 days since the Game of Thrones season finale, and yes, we’re still talking about. In the final moments of the episode, Jon “he knows nothing” Snow was stabbed and presumably killed by his fellow men of The Night’s Watch. It was a shocking moment — even for those who have read the Song of Ice and Fire books — and now it appears as if Jon is dead. Like, really really, confirmed by multiple sources, dead.
However, that isn’t stopping Emilia Clarke — aka Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons — from speaking out about his death. Clarke has a feeling that this isn’t the last we’ll see of Jon Snow. At the very least, she offers a reassuring, “I don’t know!”
Talking to MTV News, Clarke explains that when she got the scrips, she cried, and then “took Kit [Harrington] out for numerous drinks,” but still couldn’t get over the fact that he was going to leave her at the end of the season. While Jon Snow might be dead right now, does she think that’s a possibility he could return? Maaaaybe?
Clarke admits she doesn’t know one way or the other, since the showrunners know that she can’t “lie very well.” They haven’t told her Jon Snow’s fate on purpose. But, she does think it’s like a “50/50 chance” citing that “there are some helpful people [at The Wall.]” She’s talking, of course, about Melisandre, who just happened to ride north shortly before Jon’s death. Hmm. Suspicious and intriguing.
While Clarke is still clearly upset about Jon’s death (as we are, too) she’s OK with him gone if it means she’s “that much closer to getting the [Iron] Throne.” That’s our Khaleesi!
You can check the whole video out on MTV News. Looks like wild speculations about Jon Snow’s death are going to keep coming.
