Comic-Con is well underway in San Diego, and unless you’re not stuck at work, you probably didn’t get the chance to tune in to hear if there were any major revelations about the fate of our beloved Jon Snow.
Let us be the first to tell you: there were no spoilers given during today’s panel — at least not to the public.
However, we did find out that at least one person really knows the truth behind Jon Snow’s apparent departure from his Earthly life: Barack Obama.
As the show’s director David Nutter recalled in today’s panel, he “was in the company of” the President recently, at which point Obama asked if Nutter had really killed off Jon Snow.
“He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, ‘You didn’t kill Jon Snow did you?’” Nutter recalled.
“I said, ‘Jon Snow is deader than dead,’” Nutter told the audience. “I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo or something, but fortunately I’m here — but he’s dead.”
Obama was displeased, and replied, “You keep killing off my favorite characters.”
