Be warned this article contains spoilers for the newest season of Game of Thrones
After a full 10 months of fan speculation, fan-favourite Jon Snow was resurrected during this past Sunday’s episode.
“I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone,” he says in an exclusive video interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I’m glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care or it’d just be, ‘Fine, Jon Snow’s dead’. But it seemed like people did have… a kind of grief about it.”
The necromancy revival happened at the end of “Home”, the second episode of season six. Snow is brought back to life by sorceress Melisandre after being dramatically slain in the June 2015 season five finale.
Harington has apologized for this and for any lying he may have to do in the future.
“[it’s] in George Martin’s hands.”
