Properly, Jon Snow’s Direwolf Ghost is lastly again on Recreation of Thrones. He appeared in Season eight Episode 2. And though we’re glad to see him, you in all probability couldn’t have requested for a extra anticlimactic return.
Sure, we’re grateful that Ghost is again. However apparently the CGI finances wasn’t nice sufficient to truly have him work together with anybody. And when you blinked, you missed him. The saddest half is that he wasn’t even standing subsequent to Jon Snow. However a minimum of he’s again in some kind, which is best than nothing.
As a result of CGI is pricey, Ghost wasn’t in Season 7 in any respect, a lot to followers’ disappointment. Sansa briefly talked about Ghost in Episode 5 of Season 7, however except for that, he wasn’t within the plot. Bryan Cogman, a author for Recreation of Thrones, revealed that he wrote a scene for Ghost in Season 7, but it surely was lower. He was going to point out Ghost when Jon left the Winterfell crypts. He petted Ghost and requested him to deal with Sansa. Cogman guessed that the scene was lower as a result of the CGI for Ghost was too costly.
Right here is the place he was within the episode. I’m simply actually glad we lastly received to see him once more.
Right here’s a lightened model of that picture.
Till at the moment, Ghost hadn’t been seen because the starting of Season 6 when Jon first got here again to life. We had heard that Ghost was coming again for Season eight and he’s going to do “some fairly cool issues” within the closing season, in keeping with Joe Bauer, particular results supervisor of Recreation of Thrones. These cool issues didn’t occur at the moment although. 🙁
However some followers have been simply actually excited to see him once more, regardless of how.
Some thought they noticed him within the Season eight trailer, probably when some horses have been seen strolling. However different followers prompt it would really by Nymeria within the trailer, not Ghost. And nonetheless others simply thought it was a lighter-colored horse. Then there’s a scene from the trailer, when a bunch of individuals are hiding within the crypts of Winterfell, probably in Robb’s tomb. Did Ghost cover with them?
Sadly, solely two “official” direwolves are nonetheless alive — Ghost and Nymeria. Gray Wind, Girl, Summer time, and Shaggydog are all gone.
