He's back, baby! Yes, your long international nightmare of speculating about Jon Snow's fate is over. Did you really think Kit Harington would stay off Game of Thrones? He's sorry for the lies though.
"I'd like to say sorry for lying to everyone," he told EW. "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 was just going to be, fine, Jon Snow's dead, but it seemed like people did have a—similar to the Red Wedding episode—a kind of grief about it, which meant that something I'm doing, or that the show is doing for Jon is right."
And he promises you're going to see a lot of Jon Snow. And not as a corpse. "It's a massive season for Jon," Harington said. "It's his biggest season for him so far."
But it's been almost a year of lies—well, technically not lies since he was dead. Almost a year of tracking all of Harington's movements and dissecting his words. Are fans disappointed? Apparently not. Just look at the reactions below.

Jon Snow's resurrection has increased my lifespan— asdfghjkl (@PrachiRai) May 2, 2016
Last night we asked you whether you were annoyed that Jon Snow was indeed alive. The overwhelming response? "No! I'm happy he's alive no matter what" came in with more than 80 percent of the vote. On the Sunday, May 1 episode you saw him open his eyes. Now see him rise in the trailer above. That's a nice back.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays on HBO.
