There’s a lot the president of the United States needs to do in the course of a day, but current president Barack Obama makes time to keep up on Game of Thrones, going so far as to have a favorite episode.

According to director David Nutter, who spoke at a panel at San Diego Comic Con, the president’s favorite episode of the acclaimed HBO series is Season 3 episode The Red Wedding.

Oh yeah, and that one character everyone loves, the one who had been built up to be a potential candidate for the Iron Throne over the course of season 5? Yeah, he’s wicked dead.

Obama asked Nutter about the fate of Jon Snow, to which Nutter replied essentially everyone’s favorite illegitimate son is definitely dead.

“I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo or something,” Nutter said during at San Diego Comic Con, “but fortunately I’m here,” but Jon Snow? “He’s dead.”

The Red Wedding, for those of you who don’t recall, was the shocking penultimate episode of season 3 in which basically everyone you held dear up until that point had the crap murdered out of them.
