The only issue with viewers that remain is how will Jon Snow survive the near-death experience. Apparently Jon Snow will not experience any near-death experience this time because he will be dead at the start of Season 6, according to latest reports.
He will be dead as dead could be which is consistent with what Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the TV series, has said during an interview last year immediately after the Season 5 finale.
Latest word is out that Jon Snow will indeed be back but he has to be dead first. It turns out that the bastard of Winterfell will die first from the multiple stab wounds on his chest before he gets resurrected.
Whether it will be Melissandre, played by Carrie Van Houten, who shall be bringing Jon Snow back to life, or someone else like what Ian McShane lately seems to insinuate, will be one of the major things to watch out for when “Game of Thrones” Season 6 premieres.
The other question is how long would Jon Snow be dead before he gets resurrected. One thing is sure, there is no truth to wild rumors that Snow will join the undead and become part of those hunting the wildings.
