Kit Harington Would Like to Issue a Public Apology for Lying to Us All Year

Well THANKS, Jon Snow. (Oh and uh, spoiler alert, btw.)

Remember when HBO was all "Jon Snow is dead (opens in new tab)," and the internet was like "whatever you say 'HBO' if that's even you're real name." Well, he's definitely alive, or at the very least a zombie returned from the beyond to slay us with his emo feelings.

In case you didn't catch Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow was brought back to life by Melisandre, which means Kit Harington has been lying this entire time. Explain yourself, sir. 

"Sorry. I'd like to say sorry for lying to everyone," Harington tells Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab). "I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care. Or it would just be, 'Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I'm doing—or the show is doing—is right."

Cool, cool, all is forgiven—but question: is it too late to re-animate Ned Stark's decapitated head, y/n?
