Winter is coming, in more ways than one. HBO has just released the first promotional poster for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones and it reaffirms what countless fans already knew: Jon Snow is definitely not gone for good. Even though Kit Harrington, the show's producers and HBO executives have all insisted the character is truly dead, most people have been expecting Jon's return from the moment the first knife was plunged into his chest. Even if we ignore the photos of Harrington on set in Belfast, this latest marketing ploy is all the confirmation we need that Jon Snow will be back.
For five years now, book readers have been able to hold spoilers over the heads of show watchers, but for the first time since the series began, everyone will be going into the new season without knowledge of what will happen. With that being said, here are a few fan theories that this Jon Snow teaser poster all but confirms.
