Undoubtedly one of the most shocking scenes of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones season 5 is Jon Snow's murder in the hands of some mutinous men of the Night's Watch.
Even though fans are still recovering from this great loss, sightings and reports of the show's cast arriving for the script read-through in Belfast has sustained the fans' excitement for the upcoming season. However, one actor sighting is sending fans in frenzy.
Kit Harington is reported to have arrived in Northern Ireland this week, but no one is quite sure for what reason. Watchers on the Wall reader named Lucy reportedly spotted the actor that plays the infamous Jon Snow as he arrived to Belfast in the same flight as actor Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar) had taken.
Press releases and interviews from previous weeks have reported that Jon Snow is in fact dead and will not be coming back alive for the next season. But with fans posting tweets of running into Harington in Belfast, various theories regarding Jon Snow's fate for season 6 has been rekindled.

The hope of seeing the murdered Lord Commander grows stronger:
Even with this latest photo evidence of Harington being in the same country as where the script read-through for the next season is taking place, it does not confirm if Jon Snow is indeed alive. The actor could be there to shoot the burial scene similar to Tywin Lannister. Fans will just have to patiently wait in the following months on what will become of Jon Snow.
Filming for Game of Thrones season 6 begins at the end of the month.
