The Official Synopsis For The First Of Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Makes It Clear: "Jon Snow Is Dead"

“It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it, and you realize that I was telling the truth the whole time,” Kit Harington recently said about Jon Snow, his beloved character from “Game Of Thrones” who met his demise in season five. Or did he? Poke around the internet and you’ll find plenty of Snow Truthers who believe the character didn’t meet his maker, or will be brought back to life via magick, or something. But HBO has cheekily addressed the issue in revealing the official, terse, hilarious plot synopsis for the season’s first episode, “The Red Woman.” 

“Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”

That is some amazing semi-trolling from the network, which is not sending screeners to press. So everyone who wants to know what’s up on “Game Of Thrones” will have to tune in on April 24th or have it ruined by the internet by 11:01 PM the same night.
