I know I know I know – usually with these posts the “favorite character” ends up being “that dungeon lurker who ate paste in the corner and had 40 seconds of screen time!” or “that minor character that the camera kept panning over just to make it more dramatic when he got decapitated.” To be fair to us though, the last post we did about a character who died in season 1 and is reportedly shooting scenes for the upcoming season was pretty legit, despite those scenes being flashbacks (maybe, we can’t say for sure since we obviously don’t work for HBO).
Did that little paragraph about clickbait get you worried that this post will be clickbait too? DON’T WORRY, IT AIN’T. According to Watchers on the Wall, the following dude who everyone loves and no one truly believes is dead has reportedly been spotted filming scenes in Northern Ireland:
Jon “I know nothing except that I love fire crotches” Snow.
Sources report that today Game of Thrones is filming portions of a massive battle in Saintfield, Northern Ireland, that will likely be a part of episode nine. Preparations and the beginning of filming were seen in that area recently, but it was difficult to glean many details.
We’ve learned that the battle will involve many northern armies fighting including the Umbers, the Boltons, wildlings and more! The true major spoiler is this: Kit Harington a.k.a Jon Snow was also seen at the location, participating in shooting this week. Harington has been spotted in Belfast again recently, along with Iwan Rheon, so it’s not too shocking Harington is filming Game of Thrones.
Looks like Game of Thronesis planning another huge battle for the ever-important episode nine. I won’t call it the biggest one of all yet, not unless dragons show up. Have not heard anything about dragons showing up, alas.
What’s the battle over? I don’t know. Who’s gonna win? I don’t know. Is Jon Snow on the side of the living or the dead? I don’t know. Jesus Christ and tits on a monkey, be happy for what you already got – Snow ain’t dead. You’ll find the rest out in due time.
…unless HBO is pulling a massive troll and staging fake scenes just to fuck with everyone. That would be a giant waste of money though, so we’re going to ignore that notion and continue on with our lives.
Oh, and if you consider this post a spoiler then you’re probably too stupid to even follow the plot of Game of Thrones. I’m serious — anyone with even 1/3rd of a firing brain cell knows there’s no way Jon Snow is dead, it’s just a matter of how he comes back to life and what side he’s on in the war when he IS back. Maybe he’s an Other, maybe he’s still human, I donno — but he ain’t DEAD-dead, that’s for sure.
