Jon Snow is alive! Fan theories proven to be on the spot as The Red Woman revives the character in Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 2.


After his abrupt demise at the end of season 5, speculation about Snow returning has been the talk of everyone. His death seemed to be out of place and many expect him to participate in the coming war with the White Walkers.

The most prevalent theory about how Jon Snow will come back to the land of the living seems to involve the red priestess Melisandre. It was earlier revealed that the Red God has the power to revive the dead as in the case of Beric Dondarrion being alive.

After ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 premiered without reviving the character many seemed to have accepted the fact that Kit Harington’s character is definitely dead. But a single detail was present that kept the hope alive for many: they never got rid of his body.

After The Red Woman’s big reveal in the first episode, everything was set. Melisandre’s true form as a very old woman indicates that she is a very powerful magician, powerful enough to at least postpone death.

After Edd returns with the wildlings to subdue the mutinous Alliser Thorne and the Night’s Watch, Davos urges Melisandre to do everything she can. Reluctantly, she proceeds to do the ritual of bathing the body and reciting incantations while throwing pieces of his hair into a fire.

The ritual seems to fail as seen from the faces of those waiting in the room. A disappointed Tormund Giantsbane leaves the room and others soon follow, with only Ghost remaining by his master’s side.

After all seems lost, Ghost begins to stir and wakes up expecting for someone to come it. The scene draws closer to the body. He suddenly opens his eyes and gasps for air. Jon Snow lives!
