I imagine that there are many Game of Thrones fans amongst the AngloINFO user base. I am one! And I imagine that all you others were as horrified as I was with the dramatic ending to the 5th series last Sunday (13h June). But the question is - is Jon Snow dead? I say not. Why? Simply because he still has so much to offer the story; his time has not yet come. His death would be - unlike all the other deaths in the saga so far - untimely. He has not yet fulfilled his karma! And also because the final book in the series so far is inconclusive about whether he did or did not die. But - I hear you say - we saw him stabbed and lying lifeless in the snow. So how can he not be dead? Here are some possibilities: 1. He was dreaming - he was only stabbed in his dreams; to be as unpopular as he made himself in Castle Black by doing the right thing re the wildlings would surely be enough to give anyone nightmares - especially knowing the kind of people that make up the Knight´s Watch 2. He was stabbed many times, yes, and lost a lot of blood. But not mortally stabbed. He may just be unconscious, and some sympathetic resident of Castle Black may yet take him away and nurse him back to health. Now Sam has gone it is not easy to think who that might be - perhaps one of the wildlings knowing that their survival depends on him? 3. Melisandre is back at Castle Black - and we know she and the Lord of Light can bring people back from the other side..... And what could happen once he proves to be alive still? Presumably his attempted murder by his brothers releases him from his oath. So could he join Stannis and fight to re-win Winterfell (with the wildlings?) And if the rumour that his mother was not a barmaid but a Targaryen could he make a claim for the iron throne? Or, indeed, could he marry Danaeris!? Let´s hope we don´t have to wait too long for the next series and/or the next book!! Any views?
