It's good to know that HBO has finally acknowledged Jon Snow's (Kit Harrington) presence in season 6 of "Game of Thrones" after photos of the actor in Belfast have been leaked online several times. The first poster of season 6 serves as an official confirmation of Jon in the upcoming season, but the question remains if he will return as a Snow.

Actor Kit Harrington said that his character, Jon Snow, is dead. This, in all probability, is a reference to the fact that his character will no longer be a bastard in season 6.

Ever since the end of season 5, the fans have predicted that the character will resurrect in the latest instalment. A popular fan theory argued that Jon Snow might exhibit his Stark blood and become a warg, i.e. enter into his wolf. If this is indeed true, Jon Snow, will be a wolf in the rest of "Game of Thrones" seasons, because his physical body will be pronounced dead.

We think that Jon Snow might be resurrected by Melisandre (Carice Von Houten), who once said in season 5 that her powers are strong at the Wall. Furthermore, Jon Snow's return in season 6 indicates that his parentage will be revealed in season 6.

The producers of "Game of Thrones" will most likely depict that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. Indeed, this will legitamise his identity and perhaps win him new allies.

Jon Snow's return to season 6 also raises questions about the role the character might play. In the books, the Lord Commander tells his men that he wants to ride south, but is stabbed before he can undertake the journey.

We predict that Jon will still continue on that mission and try to find his sister Sansa (Sophie Turner). A recent spoiler hinted at a major battle between Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) and Jon at the Wall. If Jon does win the battle, we predict that he will allow Sansa to take over Winterfell, and he will focus on the war with the White Walkers.
