Spoiler Alert: Game of Thrones procrastinators, stop reading.

The state of affairs concerning Game of Thrones' Jon Snow does not look alive. But it also might not be as dead as the season five finale (and his haircut) lead us to believe. This confusion about Snow's potential alive-or-not-ness was recently addressed by GOT cast member Emilia Clarke:

"If I have to bet, I'd say it's a 50/50 chance - there's some helpful people there who could bring him back to life."

She clarified: "I have no idea what's going to happen," and no one is likely to tell her because, "I can't lie very well." In sum: No one knows whether he's alive or dead and it's probably a bad idea to play poker with Emilia Clarke.
