We now know for certain that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark are the parents of Jon Snow (well, on the show, at least). YouTube user hurleybird painstakingly collected every single scene and mention of them on the series so far, and assembled them in one moving masterpiece of a supercut.
If you’re going through Game of Thrones withdrawal—and aren’t we all—then you need to watch this video immediately.
Let’s be real: This is possibly the most important, game-changing news that we have heard about Game of Thrones season six so far. NO JOKE. And no, we don’t mean the mere trim Melisandre gave him last episode.
The fact that the previously very-dead Jon Snow is now very not-dead on Game of Thrones is perhaps one of the worst kept secrets in the show’s six-year history. But that didn’t stop the production team from trying to keep his return under wraps—and they went to some pretty crazy lengths to do so, like banning his name.
The first big trailer for Game of Thrones’ sixth season ended with an awesome stinger of Davos Seaworth drawing Jon Snow’s sword from its sheathe, ready to hack someone to pieces. But a new clip from the show’s premiere gives us some context for the badass moment, and there’s a lot more going on than we thought.
The saga of Jon Snow’s status in Game of Thrones season six continues. Over the past year we’ve heard denials, confirmations and more (and written an unsightly number of words about hair length) about whether or not Jon Snow is returning for season six. Now Kit Harington has chimed in to confirm he is back. Sort of.
These days, creators struggle to keep the details of their upcoming movies and TV shows from leaking on the internet, so they can preserve their big surprises. And this leads to some pretty feeble attempts at misdirection, with cast and crew vehemently denying what everybody already knows. Sometimes, it works.…
Despite being stabbed bunches during last season finale, it appears that Jon Snow’s story in Game of Thrones isn’t quite over. Actor Kit Harington was spotted in Belfast, where season six is currently being shot, and not only do we have proof, it doesn’t look like he’s just there for a cameo.
If you’re to believe the words of a certain flame-haired Wildling, poor Mr. Snow doesn’t know anything. Even if that were true, at least his action figure knows one crucial thing: How to look pretty goddamn fabulous.
Um, I can't even report this news without it being a spoiler for those who know certain things about the Game of Thrones TV show, the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, or even just one pertinent behind-the-scenes fact. Do not read unless you want news that could destroy one of GoT's most popular fan theories.
Jon Snow may know nothing, but actor Kit Harrington isn't much more informed, at least in terms of contract negotiations. The Game of Thrones star revealed that HBO has the legal power to forbid him from cutting his trademark Jon Snow locks until the show ends or, presumably, his character dies.
Though it's not forged from Valyrian steel, master swordsmith Tony Swatton made a pretty perfect real life version of Jon Snow's Longclaw sword from Game of Thrones. The sword's pommel has a nice ivory replica of Ghost, the hilt is exquisitely knotted and the blade is as ginormous and intimidating as it should be.
Jon Snow is about to go from knowing nothing to knowing pretty much everything if Fox has its way. Variety discovered the shortlists for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which include Kit Harington as Reed Richards, Saoirse Ronan as Sue Storm, and Chronicle's Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch.
Jon Snow apparently knows one thing, and that's ab crunches. That's the only way to explain Kit Harrington's super-ripped, half-dressed body as seen in this first picture from the historical epic Pompeii. Hell, he looks like he's in danger of burning the city down on his own.
When the wildling Ygritte said "You know nothing, Jon Snow" several million times in the Game of Thrones' books, she wasn't joking. So I guess it makes a little sense that Ygritte — in the spirit of education — would narrate this animated mini-documentary about the Night's Watch, which will included as an extra in…
The latest on-set video from Game of Thrones takes us beyond The Wall to the wilds of
the Frostfangs Iceland. Watch as the Night's Watch tromps around a glacier and looks extremely fricking cold. No filming at an indoor ski slope for these guys. Hat tip to Radiosilence!
