On last week’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” it was revealed that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is in fact alive. At the end of last season, he was stabbed by his Night’s Watch brothers and left for dead in the snow. After months of fan speculation and inconsistent reports over whether the character was really dead or not, Melisandre revived the character in last week’s episode. Though the reveal prompted mixed reaction from critics, it has certainly opened up the season in a variety of interesting ways, especially the nature of Snow’s role in the rest of the season.
