Of course he’s not f*cking dead. Here are the three most popular theories surrounding the return of the king...
Melisandre will resurrect him
Arya’s time with The Brotherhood Without Banners showed us that red priests can bring the dead back if the Lord of Light wills it. Mel met Thoros in Season 3 and admired his handiwork first-hand in a scene that was written specifically for the show. Her return to the Wall following Jon’s stabbing was perfect timing.
He’s warged into his direwolf
It’s unclear just how aware Jon is of he and his siblings’ ability to slip into the skin of their wolves, but there have been enough hints throughout the show to suggest that Jon’s soul could live on inside Ghost once his body has been hacked to pieces. The only question that remains, though: how would you get him back out?
He’ll come back as a wight
Unless Jon’s body gets burned, there’s a chance he’ll return as a member of the undead. We’ve seen the White Walkers’ overtake Hardhome and add countless blue-eyed corpses to their ranks. Could he be next?
