As if that weren't enough, HBO launched a “Honor The Fallen” merchandise sale with a notable omission: http://store.hbo.com/memorium/index.php?v=hbo_shows_game-of-thrones_memorium&ecid=EMC-HBO-001372&pa=EMC_HBO_20150721_GOTInMemoriam
I like how even that one white walker was put on that list.

Then again, so was The Mountain, and he's pretty blatantly not dead.

I was going to say Benjen Stark was also omitted, but he doesn't seem to have any merchandise in the first place :(

You have to admit, as annoying as it would be (and as much as it wouldn't really fit the story), it'd be hilarious if this was all part of a grand troll. I don't think the internet could take the backlash to that.

Definitely a troll. Pretty soon it will be too obvious for even the show to deny.
Jon is coming back just like Lady Stoneheart.

I meant it'd be hilarious if the hints that Jon is coming back are the troll. Not Kit Harrington's statements that he won't.

I mean, like if Kit was hanging around Belfast incognito (well, sort of) when he wasn't actually shooting in the first place, just to confuse people.

Kit Harington back in Belfast:

Add #hairwatch to the equation, pretty clear HBO/Harington intend to use loopholes in legalese statements previously made to explain his reappearance.
No Jon, no Syrio either.

Yet both Sandor and Gregor Clegane are included and there's no evidence that they're dead. So take the page with a grain of salt, it's hardly a definitive list of who's alive and who's croaked.

Yeah it'll be funny if episode 1 shows the watch burning Jon's dead body into ashes. But I think he's coming back.

Oh, ok. But time is money for guys like this. If they're even a little bit motivated, they're not going to have huge gaps between shooting. And someone like this probably has casting agents beating a path to his door. So if he's really just hanging out, then either he doesn't have his next gig lined up, which I find hard to believe, or it doesn't start for such a long time that he can afford to putz around.

Kit has at least one movie lined up already, he will be in "Brimstone" with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre from the show)

With his schedule it's unlikely he's stopping by just to say hi to other cast members and playing a dead body doesn't take long, that's assuming they would even need him there while news articles claim he is still in Belfast.

Syrio has unfortunately been confirmed dead:

You know nothing, Rick James Astley.

Keeping his hair in character is more commitment than you imply.

I notice that all the people in the know (connected to the show, the actor himself etc) all seem to say that he's "really dead", trying to convince people that he's gone for good. That seems like a very politician-like statement, where you seem to be saying something but you leave it open for a loophole later. Yes, he's indeed dead, but that doesn't preclude them from bringing him back to life in one form or another later. So yes, dead is dead, but as we've seen people can come back to life in GoT.
