A wink from a 'Game of Thrones' star might've just given away Jon Snow's fate

“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has given fans something to go nuts over in respect to Jon Snow’s fate on season six. And she did it with just a wink.

During this past weekend’s Independent Spirit Awards, the actress who plays fan-favourite character Daenerys Targaryen, aka “Mother of Dragons,” was onstage with “The Birth of a Nation” director Nate Parker to present the best first feature award.

Parker, an apparent “Game of Thrones” fan, kept questioning Clarke about Jon Snow’s fate and asked her to wink if Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is still alive, according to the BBC.

And guess what? As she exited the stage, Clarke gave Parker a wink.

Astute viewers apparently caught the sign of life:

From the moment Snow fell from multiple stabs from the Night’s Watch men who were supposed to be under his command, fans have found it hard to believe he’s really gone for good.

The mystery around the character deepened when HBO released the “Game of Thrones”season-six poster that features Snow prominently, which launched a hundred questions. One of Harington’s castmates, Natalie Dormer, said the poster
had “given a little bit of the game away.”

Other cast members, such as Maisie Williams and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, have said Snow is dead (or at least not alive). But could Clarke have really let the cat out of the bag?
