Most of the fans believed that Jon Snow would return. One of the popular theories was that the priestess of R'hllor, Melisande who serves Stannis Baratheon currently and possesses mystical powers, would bring Snow back.
She had shown vested interest in him previously and that made everyone hopeful that she would play a part in resurrecting him. Whenhen her truth was revealed in the first episode of season 6, hope peaked more.
So in the latest episode, Home which is the second of the sixth season in the Game of Thrones series, saw Melisandre using the Lord of Light R’hllor’s power to jolt life back into Jon Snow’s dead body.
Davos was the one to suggest it to the priestess and having seen Thoros of Myr do it for Beric Dondarrion to bring him back, she makes a half-hearted attempt from Melisandre and just mimics what she had witnessed previously to bring back Jon Snow.
The funny thing is that the return of Jon Snow was anticipated so much that it was not quite as shocking as the show runners might have wanted it to be. It was more of a relief for many to see that they had guessed right and Jon Snow was in action once more.
Although the cast and crew had worked hard not to reveal anything about the secret and keep confirmation of Snow’s death a mystery, Kit Harrington’s visit to the set of the show might have been a solid reason for people to believe that the Westeros son was not going to be dead for long.

Kit apologized to his fans about the death of Jon Snow over the past ten months. He said that he was just glad to see that people cared about Jon so much and they wanted him back. His death had caused remorse among the masses which was proof that he was doing something right.
