Jon Snow died on 'Game of Thrones,' or maybe not?

Fans instantly began to rally around the character. 

While HBO top brass, co-stars, and Harington himself have said Jon Snow is either dead or not returning, fans have continued a constant vigil for the beloved character's return.

Harington sightings have propelled fans to believe that the character will be back. Others feel the show hasn't completed his story.

 Fans, you should be so proud of yourself for never losing the faith. HBO, shame on you.
