The following post contains massive spoilers about Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, titled “Home.” 

The biggest mystery in the history of Game of Thrones has been solved.

It turns out, Jon Snow was indeed dead…

But not anymore!

Sunday night’s Game of Thrones episode, titled “Home,” concluded with Melisandre fulfilling fan expectations and resurrecting Jon Snow. The episode ended with the Lord Commander opening his eyes wide with shock and breathing deeply.

EW has complete and exclusive coverage — including an interview with Kit Harington.

“Sorry!” Harington told EW during our exclusive interview with the Thrones star. The 29-year-old kept the secret of Snow’s fate for the last 10 months, since the fifth season of Game of Thrones ended last June. “I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I’m glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care. Or it would just be, ‘Fine, Jon Snow’s dead.’ But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I’m doing — or the show is doing — is right.”
