Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, is easily one of the most famous and lovable characters on the show Game of Thrones. All was well on Twitter until Netflix caused a stir with the following tweet:
Please don’t ask us why Jon Snow is trending. We know nothing.

Most of the fans linked it to the recent release of the trailer of Criminals season 2, starring Kit Harington. Kit Harington played Jon Snow for all the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones. Criminals season 2 also stars Kunal Nayyar, Sophie Okonedo and Sharon Horgan. Kit shines in his role as a convicted real estate agent.
Kit Harington starts his episode of Criminal S2 with a 6-minute, one-shot monologue looking straight down the camera. Here’s some of it. He clearly knows *some* things. pic.twitter.com/TmJ0HurLAE

While others linked the trend to seasonal change. A pun directed at a famous line from the show. Something that only a Stark would say,
“Winter is coming.”
Jon Snow trending because Winter is coming 😂😂😂😂 #JonSnow pic.twitter.com/bUDsyBsn43
