[This story contains spoilers for the series finale of HBO's Game of Thrones.] Jon Snow (Kit Harington) cheated death once. The 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch sustained a knife to the heart in Game of Thrones' fifth season finale, only to return two episodes later to weather more violence: first, "The Battle of the Bastards," in which he and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) won back their ancestral home of Winterfell, and later "The Long Night," in which he and the allied forces of the living banded together to save Winterfell and the rest of humanity from the White Walkers.
