Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke Shares Good News for Jon Snow Fans

Will Kit Harington return after all?

Sadie Gennis

All might not be lost for Jon Snow.

Despite apparently dying at the hands of his Nights' Watch brothers in the Season 5 finale, Kit Harington might return toGame of Thrones after all.

During an interview with MTV News, Emilia Clarke, who plays Jon's rumored aunt Daenerys Targaryen, revealed there's hope that the Lord Command will return.

"I mean, if I had to bet, I'd say there's a 50/50 chance. I mean, there's some helpful people there who could bring him back to life," Clarke said.

Though the actress acknowledged she doesn't know anything for sure, she makes a good point. Shortly before Jon's demise, Melissandre abruptly showed up at the Wall. What purpose could the Red Woman serve there now, unless it is to use her powers to revive Jon?

The most popular theory on Jon Snow's real parents

For his part, Harington remains staunch in his insistence that "I'm not coming back next season." But the actor doesn't mention anything about not returning for Season 7.

However, as Game of Thrones often likes to remind us, words are wind. So who knows how much weight we should give Clarke or Harington's statements.

Watch Clarke's full interview below. Do you hope Jon Snow returns?
