6. Jon Snow is Alive
Jon Snow is Alive
At the end of Season Five, everyone was left on a HUGE cliffhanger! Is Jon Snow alive? I personally think he is, and the photo above backs my theory, however there are a few theories of how he is alive, some of them clearly not the case from what is shown in the photo. I will share them all, these were all expressed before this picture was taken. Theory One: His Targeryen Blood awakens. This theory is that he does die, however, he brought back to life when he burnt by the other Watchers of the Wall, much like Aemon Targeryen who took to the Crows. After dying of old age, he was cremated on the episode 'The Gift', Season Five, Episode 7. Of course, if you're not aware of the R+L=J theory, you will not understand how Jon Snow has Targeryen blood (in theory). Of course, Targeryens are not hurt by fire or heat, and some theorists have even claimed that it rejuvenates them, so it would restore Jon Snow back to life. Quick note, if the R+L=J theory is true, that means that Daenerys is Jon Snow's Aunt... More on that on the chapter though.
Another theory is the simple fact that Jon Snow becomes a White Walker. In Episode 8 of Season Five, Hardhome, dead wildings are shown rising from the dead, their corpses reanimated to become White Walkers, which could happen to Jon since he could of indeed died. The last theory of this kind that I know is that Jon Snow before he died warged into his Direwolf, Ghost. Before you get confused, this is more a theory coming from those who have read the book, in the books Jon Snow is a warg as well as Bran Stark. This would explain why Ghost isn't seen in Jon's 'last moments.' There is nothing to be confirmed at this moment of how he is alive, however it is clear he is alive, he is a huge part of the plot.
