After previously risking his life in epic battles at Castle Black and Hardhome, season five of Game of Thrones ends with a few Night's Watch brothers fatally stabbing Jon and leaving him to die. He doesn't just almost die; he straight up, for real, dies. In a show full of cliffhangers, it was one of the biggest of all time. The twist had viewers waiting with bated breath to see how he would come back — because Jon Snow can't really die, right? Thankfully, Melisandre revives him with her magic. He's still alive and kicking heading into the end of Game of Thrones as we know it, but it remains to be seen if that will stick.
