Kit Harington Is Not Here for This *Huge* 'Game of Thrones' Theory

The Prince That Was Promised? More like the Prince That Was Pissed.

At this point, there are too many Game of Thrones theories (opens in new tab) out there to keep up with—but one of the most important is less of a theory and more of a prophecy. Welcome to The Prince That Was Promised, which states the return of an ~ancient hero~ who will save the world. And naturally, everyone thinks said hero is Jon Snow. Well, everyone except Kit Harington.

"I think you have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything more about Jon," Harington told The Huffington Post (opens in new tab). "I think Jon would hate the term 'The Prince That Was Promised.' If someone turned to him and said, 'You're The Prince That Was Promised,' he just wouldn't pay much attention. That's what I love about him, so I don't really care about it either. You know, I think that's what's great about him. He's got very little ego on him."

Okay, so it's not exactly a *denial* but it's certainly not a "hell yeah, I'm the PTWP." But regardless, there's evidence that Jon Snow is said prince. As The Huffington Post notes, this mysterious fellow was born "beneath a bleeding star"—and when Jon was born there was a sword made from a star with blood all over it at the end of the bed.

Moral of the story: ONLY JON SNOW CAN SAVE US.
