This April, “Winter is coming” and it is going to be super exciting for all the die-hard fans of the popular TV series, Game of Thrones. Last season we got a preview of the icy blue White Walker during the rescue operation to bring back the wildings, the fierce Drogon’s return, and the escape of the Khalees. How can we forget the major kick in the guts that left us gasping at the betrayal of Ollie and other men of the night’s watch, while they heartlessly stabbed their leader Jon Snow in the name of righteousness.
A lot of conspiracy theories were discussed like how Jon Snow wouldn’t die and if his critical part in the storyline has been foregone by the producers of the show. The showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss along with Kit Harrington publicly made an appearance to announce that the character of Jon Snow is officially dead, which led to a huge hue and cry among the fans. They went all guns blazing, showing their hurt and loss at such a sequence of events, and cried their hearts out on Twitter.
The launch of the teaser posters for Season 6, however, created a ripple of joy and “Oh! I knew it” feelings among the fans, as the first poster of the epic series portrayed Jon Snow in the spotlight. This leads us to wonder if the public announcements of Jon Snow’s death was a ploy to confuse the customers, or was it a mistake that was rectified after gauging public response?
In light of such events, we couldn’t help but wonder, while the fans were busy crying their hearts out on Twitter, were the creators of the Game of Thrones series listening? Was the decision of reviving a dying character really based on public sentiment?
What the Twitter Crawling Revealed?
We ran a couple of tests and let out some feelers via Twitter Crawls for the following keywords: “Jon Snow”, “Kit Harrington”, “Long live Jon Snow”, “Game of Thrones Finale”, and more to discover what people had written about Jon Snow’s death on the show.
Below are a few tweets that were seen as a part of the public outrage after the last episode of season 5 was aired.
The above tweets give a small picture of what the showrunners might have seen as a part of the social protests that stormed Twitter, pouring out their love for the character or how the series might not hold as much interest if this character was excluded from the main cast. With over 35K tweets in the aftermath of the finale, a lot of raw emotions linked to this protagonist were visible which could have played a crucial role in reviving Jon Snow from the dead.

As April comes closer, we now have it in our hearts that we are going to see our beloved Lord Snow once more. Was it due to public reaction on Twitter or the sentiment chart that went surging high post the unspeakable act, we just want Kit Harrington back. We are not ready to part with the hero that might be the saviour of the seven kingdoms in the time to come, well not just yet!
