Jon Snow — who all would recollect was brutally stabbed to death in Season 5 — was resurrected by the red priestess Melisandre in the second episode of Season 2. Actor Kit Harington — who plays Jon Snow — and show creators DB Weiss and David Benioff along with the rest of the cast had been insistent on the finality Jon Snow’s death when Harington was spotted at a Game of Thrones filming location in costume. Harington was even absent from the show’s promotions and premiere to drive home the fact.
But the GoT fandom never gave up hope and speculation over Jon Snow’s revival continued till the airing of the second episode. This is how the Internet has reacted to the news:

Ekta Kapoor made a dead person alive almost 12 years back. Mihir’s comeback was better than Jon Snow.
