Kit Harington Spills ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Spoiler Tea & Shares Big Plans for His Jon Snow Statue

With the Game of Thrones season eight premiere right around the corner, we can’t get enough of spoilers. We know the Battle of Winterfell is going to be huge, we know how Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will react to learning she just slept with her nephew and now, thanks to Kit Harington, we have a vague idea of what the future holds for Jon Snow.

The 32-year-old Game of Thrones star visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and shared his plans for the Jon Snow statue he took home from set. Oh, and he also tried his hardest to be sneaky about season eight spoilers…to mixed results.

You see, it turns out Harington can’t wink for the life of him. Knowing this, Fallon asked him about three specific rumors from the upcoming season and told him to wink if the answer is “Yes” and blink if it’s “No.” The problem? His winks and blinks look the same.

So will Jon die? Dunno. Does everyone die? Ditto. Will Jon get to ride a dragon? We think that was a yes, but we can’t be sure.

One thing we do know absolutely is that Harington is really going to miss portraying the King in the North. In fact, he’s going to miss it so much that he was the only GoT cast member to ask if he could take home the statue of his character at Winterfell, which made him think he really needs to “take a long look in the mirror, or statue.”

“I’m obviously sad about it ending, so I thought I’d make the statue into a sort of shrine in my garden that I go and cry in front of,” he explained.

You go ahead and do you, Kit.
