Kit Harington knows nothing about keeping a secret.
The “Game of Thrones” season finale had people everywhere going crazy over what happened to Jon Snow. After the character was stabbed by the Night’s Watch and left to die in the cold (et tu, Olly?), fans went nuts speculating about various ways he may have actually survived. Even so, Harington has maintained that Snow died and he’s gone for good. And that appeared to be the case, until now.
Various pictures of Harington at Wimbledon have started popping up online and there’s one thing about them that has fans getting excited:
It has been nearly a month since the finale and Harington is still honoring his “GoT” oath to keep his long hair and beard, which seems to indicate that he may still need them for his sworn duties to protect the realm from White Walkers and look like a total boss on the show.
For more proof, just look at Harington’s other photos.
Now, you might think to yourself, “Who cares? That beard is dope. I’d keep my hair like that, too.” And you’re partly right. The beard and hair are hella dope. But the problem is Harington doesn’t seem to think so.
The actor previously told Rolling Stone about his plans after the show and they didn’t include keeping his long locks:
“I told my agent, ‘No more swords, no more horses,'” he said. “You [don’t want to] get stuck in things. And maybe I can cut my fucking hair.”
So is Harington really coming back to the show? It’s all still speculation, but these pictures certainly don’t indicate otherwise. Actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, even said recently his return is a 50-50 chance.
“If I had to bet, I’d say there’s like a 50/50 chance,” Clarke told MTV News. “I mean, there’s some helpful people there who could bring him on back to life. But if his death means that I’m that much closer to getting to the Throne, then hey, okay,” she said with a laugh.
