The season 6 premiere starts off with the best and most important part of the show: The face of my future boyfriend, or as some of you call him, Jon Snow. Unfortunately, Jon is dead, and he stays that way for the rest of the episode. Still, Im hopeful that hell come back to me life eventually.
Here are my exact theories as to how and why Jon Snow will be resurrected:
If youve watched the trailer for season 6, you know its impossible to understand much of what anyone is saying. But you also know that towards the end, you can hear Jon Snows voice. He says something along the lines of, blah blah blahI went to sleep for a year but I woke up, blah blah blah. If you dont believe me, watch the trailer for yourself! This is SOLID proof that hell be back. Theonly real question is:
If you recall, anyone whos died beyond the wall or near Castle Black must be burned to death to avoid becoming a flesh eating zombie machine. Jon Snow did not turn into a dead zombie after his death, which proves that his spirit is around somewhere and that hes probably coming back one way or another.
Its possible that the red-headed witch will use her dark magic to bring Jon Snow back to life. At the end of the episode, when its revealed that her dark magic keeps her so young and beautiful as long as she wears her special necklace, we learn just how powerful her magic is. Also, in season 3, we saw another Lord of Light disciple, Thoros of Myr, resurrect the dead a few timesnamely, Beric Dondarrion, after The Hound chopped him up.
As Jon Snow is stabbed by his besties, he murmurs Ghost (his wolfs name), and immediately seems at peace. Its possible that his spirit exits his body and enters Ghosts just as he says the wolfs name, meaning that hes still alive in some way. That would also explain why we hear Ghost barking at the beginning of season 6. Ghost is either barking because Jon Snows spirit is somewhere nearby, or because or Jon Snow is Ghost. Since Jons younger brother, Bran Stark, is a warg, this theory isnt all that far-fetched. Warging runs in the family!
But if warging does in fact run in the family, this theory also proves something super super sad. At the Blood Wedding in Season 3, Jon Snows older brother Robb Stark murmured his wolfs name before dying. But Robb Starks wolf was killed moments later. Therefore, if this theory is in fact true, Robb Stark was killed not once, but TWICE!
This is the theory I stand behind the most! I mean, fucking duh, the most obvious theory is R+L=J! In other words, Rhaegar + Lyanna = Jon. The most buzzed about theory is that Jon Snow is not actually Eddard Starks son, but Rhaegar Targaryens instead! We know very little about Eddard Starks sister, Lyanna Stark, except that she was supposed to marry King Robert Baratheon but was kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryen before that could happen. Robert Baratheon started a war because of this, but by the time he managed to get to Lyanna Stark back, she was already dead.
Throughout the series, minor details have been dropped suggesting that Rhaegar Targaryen did not actually kidnap Lyanna Stark, but that they ran off together because they were in love. The theory is that Eddard Stark delivered his sister Lyannas baby (aka Jon Snow) and that she died during childbirth. Hypothetically, in order to protect the child (since we all know what happened to the Targaryens), Eddard Stark lied and claimed that Jon Snow was his bastard child. If you recall, in season 1, when Robert Baratheon asks Eddard Stark which mistress gave him his bastard child, Eddard does his best to avoid the question. We also know from season 1 that Eddard Stark is full of values and integrity and cheating on his wife seems like a totally out of character thing for him to do. Stannis Baratheon even says thisthat cheating is not Eddard Starks way.
Also, in season 5, episode 5, Measter Aemon Targaryen receives news about Daenerys Targrayen and says, A Targaryen alone in the world is a terrible thing, right as Jon Snow enters the room. We all know that nothing happens on Game of Thrones by chance, so this is probably evidence that Daenerys Targrayen is not the only Targaryen in the world.
Furthermore, at the end of the season 5 finale, the blood seeping through Jon Snows body seems to form the shape of dragon wings. Then, in season 6, episode 1, when Jon Snows body is brought inside, Davos Seaworth takes a few moments longer than usual to stare at the blood formed by Jon Snows body (*cough cough*: because it looks like dragon wings!). As I mentioned previously, nothing coincidental happens on Game of Thrones, so I believe there has to be a reason these subtle moments were emphasized.
Lets quickly revisit my second theory, in which I discussed how Jon Snows body was not burned yet for some reason. For arguments sake, lets say that his corpse was burned. If so, its possible that Jon Snow could come back to life from the flames, just as Daenerys Targrayen did, because fire cant kill a true Targaryen.
If this theory is in fact correct, then there is one last piece to the puzzle, which actually has nothing to do with Jon Snow and a lot to do with Tyrion Lannister. There have been moments suggesting (mainly by Tywin) that although Joanna Lannister was Tyrion Lannisters mother, and that she died giving birth to him, Tywin may not be Tyrions father. There is a theory that Joanna Lannister was either seduced or raped by the mad king, Aerys Targaryen, while Tywin was serving as Hand of the King.
If this theory holds true, then Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targrayen are all Targrayens, which brings the prophecy to light where it is said that the dragon has three heads. It would be no coincidence that all three of their mothers died during childbirth because a dragon must be born of blood.
So those are my theories! Yes, I am single, how did you guess? Yes, I would rather sit at home on a Friday night speculating about Game of Thrones and coming up with new theories about the show than go out and be forced to mingle with strangers. Why pay for over priced drinks when I can just get drunk by myself at home for free?
Hope you enjoyed reading my theories as much as I enjoyed writing them! As you can see, I am very passionate about this show especially when it comes to Jon Snow!
