Game of Thrones Season 6: Jon Snow's Fate Revealed?

Game of Thrones Finale Jon Snow Dead Killed

[NOTE: The following post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Game of Thrones season 5 and 6]

If there's one thing that author George R.R. Martin made clear in the first installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, no one is safe - anyone, even fan-favorite heroes, can be killed without any warning. Following a bloody path of shocking deaths across five seasons of premium HBO television (including the beheading of Eddard Stark, mutilation of the Red Viper, and the all-out bloody chaos of the Red Wedding, to name a few), the betrayal and death of Jon Snow at the hands of his Night's Watch brothers was especially hard for viewers to accept.

It wasn't long before Snow's murder led to a number of fan theories regarding how the Lord Commander could return - as well as the character's importance to the ongoing Game of Thrones series. Speculation that the hero could return was further fueled by images of actor Kitt Harington with his trademark shoulder-length Jon Snow haircut - prompting many viewers to assume that the actor would return, even if the means by which Snow would be resurrected remain unconfirmed.

Now, a new leaked image from Game of Thrones season 6 filming has revealed Harington back on set - fully decked out in battle armor costuming.

Check out the image below (and pay special attention to the co-star under the black umbrella):
