‘Winds of Winter’ Update: Emmys Host Pokes Fun of George R.R. Martin, Says Jon Snow is Alive!
The Sunday night Emmys Award Show has leaked the fate of Jon Snow, a fan favorite character from the HBO series, "Games of Thrones." The show's host, comedian Andy Samberg, jokingly told the audience that George R.R. Martin, the author of the "A Song of Ice an Fire" series, which "Games of Thrones" is based on, is keeping Snow alive.
"Thanks for telling me during the commercial that Jon Snow is alive," Samberg said after wishing the author a happy birthday.
Snow's future has been heavily discussed this summer since the season five finale when Snow was seemingly murdered by the men of the Night's Watch who did not agree with his decision to risk their lives in order to save the wildings. Despite the fact that the show's producer stated that Snow is 100 percent dead, fans have continued to collect evidence that Snow is not dead.
The biggest piece of evidence is the fact that Kit Harington, the British actor who plays Snow, is still in Belfast, where "Games of Thrones" is filmed. Harington was reportedly spotted filming a huge fight scene. He has also kept his signature "Jon Snow" locks, which Harington is not allowed to cut off.
Aside from talking about Snow, Samberg also joked about how Martin attended the very first Emmy. The host revealed a picture of a baby with Martin's signature hat, eyeglasses and beard.
