‘Walking Dead’ Throws Shade at ‘Game of Thrones’ Over Jon Snow Poster
TV resurrections certainly hit a boiling point over the last few days, between last night’s dumpster-diving Walking Dead, or this morning’s surprise Game of Thrones revelation, a proximity not lost on the former’s creative minds. The Walking Dead took a playful shot at Game of Thrones for torturing fans, but is the pot calling the kettle (or perhaps just taking the) black?
You’re warned of full Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead Season 6 spoilers from here on out, but where this morning saw Jon Snow fans cheering his presence on the first 2016 poster, seeming confirmation that Game of Thrones isn’t yet done with Kit Harington, The Walking Dead’s comic Twitter account was less than amused. The AMC adaptation’s recent Glenn shell game left a bad taste in many a fan’s mouths, though to The Walking Dead’s credit, we only had to suffer the uncertainty a few weeks:
Whose reveal manipulated fans more remains open for debate, and if we’re being technical, Game of Thrones‘ poster doesn’t explicitly confirm Jon Snow’s survival/resurrection. Still, we’d imagine HBO to take the high road in this fight, or at the very least, throw Jon Snow under a dumpster for a quick fix.
In the meantime, The Walking Dead will be back to killing folk this coming Sunday, while Game of Thrones Season 6 will, as revealed by our poster, premiere in April 2016.
