Game of Thrones producer’s wife: ‘Keep Jon Snow alive — or turn gay’

When last we saw Game of Thrones character Jon Snow (Kit Harington), he was having a rough night. In fact, he was dead — although theories abound that his death is a gamey cliffhanger to make way for a Christlike resurrection in Season Six. Or some wild scene like that.

Harington and his fellow cast members, of course, insist the character is as dead as a summer fling.

Actress Amanda Peet — who’s married to Game of Thrones screenwriter David Benioff — is just as in the dark as we are. (Perhaps even more so, in the grander scheme of things.) Having a hard time wrapping her head around Jon Snow’s seemingly ugly fate, she made a not-so subtle ultimatum with her husband.

Talking to Conan O’Brien, she said she watches the snow each week with Andrea Troyer, the wife of the show’s co-creator, DB Weiss.

“We don’t look ahead,” she said. “We don’t read scripts so we’re just fans like everybody else. We watch the show like normal civilians.” (Erm.)

“But I started hearing ‘is something going to happen to Jon Snow?’

“I had many conversations with David where I said, ‘if you do that I’m literally not going to be here the next day! I will pack my bags and leave because I love Jon Snow! You can’t take him away because it’s just cheap and dumb!’.

“He said ‘don’t worry, don’t worry, I promise don’t worry’… and two weeks later [Jon Snow] was dead.”

He faked me out – that’s what I’m dealing with in my marriage!”

Then, when she learned the violent plot twist: “First I called Andrea, and we basically staged an intervention with them.”

“We said you better find a way to bring him back, I don’t care what it takes, or else you can be gay with each other!”

We’ll find out if Jon Snow is really dead — or this is just a carefully-orchestrated, semi-sadistic stunt in the tradition of the Easter Bunny — when Game of Thrones returns on April 24.
