However Christ-figure-y Jon Snow may be, this is Game of Thrones, where the nudity is gratuitous and the resurrection scenes (NOT A SPOILER ANYMORE) so sexy, they're awkward even for the actors filming them.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Carice van Houten and Kit Harington discuss how uncomfortable it is laying nude on a slab for hours save for a minuscule vanity sheath covering your Jon Snow Jr.

"It took forever to resurrect him, forever!" Houten said. "It was such an important scene, we shot it from so many angles. I think I washed his body 50 times. There would be a lot of people who would be very jealous, including my mother and sister. I was joking about that with him—'if only my mother could see this'—and he loved that."

For his part, Harington thought it was "very weird, like a teenage boy's wet dream—you're laying there naked and Carice van Houten is washing you." Okay, but you know what would have made it better for everybody? To quote Emilia Clarke: "Free the P! Free the P!"

(That came out more sexual than intended. Sorry.)
