New ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Poster Teases the Return of You-Know-Who

New 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Poster Teases the Return of You-Know-Who

[Spoilers for Season 5 of “Game of Thrones” below.]

When Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was stabbed to death in the final moments of the Season 5 finale this summer, internet speculation went crazy over the ensuing months over whether or not dead is truly dead in this universe — a problem only amplified by the fact that as of Season 5, all of George R.R. Martin’s published novels have been adapted, meaning that even the book nerds don’t know what happens next.

Now, HBO is throwing some fuel on the fire by releasing the below Season 6 poster, which features dear ol’ Jon Snow not looking so great…but the fact that Harington is there at all is bound to set off another six months of discussion as to what we might look forward to come the show’s return in 2016. 

That’d be April 2016, by the way, as confirmed by this poster. Check it out below, and let the theories continue.
