(Warning: This whole paragraph is one big spoiler alert.) Game of Thrones fans are flipping out after the show released a new promo poster featuring a bloodied Jon Snow, the character played by Kit Harington who (spoiler alert!) apparently died in the season 5 finale. Even the Walking Dead team had something to say, tweeting, "And you guys thought WE were torturing our fans..." in reference to that show's apparent (another spoiler alert!), but not actual, killing-off of a major character. As Entertainment Weekly notes, rumors had already been swirling that Snow would be featured in season 6, which premieres in April, because Harington has been seen, in costume, on set.
