‘Sorry! I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone,’ Kit Harrington told Entertainment Weekly after Monday night’s explosive episode revealed that no, actually, Jon Snow really wasn’t dead after all. ‘I’m glad that people were upset that he died,’ he went on. ‘I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care.
