If there was one character followers wished to see extra of…of any of, for that matter…in Game of Thrones season 7, it was Ghost, Jon Snow’s direwolf. He was written into at the very least one scene in “Stormborn,” in accordance with author Bryan Cogman, however it was reduce:
There was a bit right here the place Jon got here out of the crypt, and Ghost got here as much as him and he petted him and mentioned, “Take care of [Sansa], watch over her for me.” But I suppose these direwolves are costly. I suppose it acquired reduce. Oh, effectively. Ghost is there someplace roaming round.
The most we acquired of Ghost in season 7 was a short point out from Sansa concerning the Northern lords not sitting round ready for Jon to come back again to Winterfell like Ghost. Well, excellent news, you guys: Game of Thrones particular results supervisor Joe Bauer revealed to Huffington Post that Ghost is coming again! “Oh, you’ll see him again,” Bauer mentioned. “He has a fair amount of screen time in Season 8. He does show up.”
Bauer additionally defined why there’s been a noticeable lack of direwolves in current seasons:
The direwolves are robust since you don’t need to get them incorrect, so we find yourself at all times capturing actual wolves and doing a scaling trick with them, however the actual wolves solely behave in sure methods. I believe that has one thing to do with why the direwolves are within the present however they’re not perhaps as integral as they’re within the books.
Bauer didn’t element precisely what Ghost would do in season 8 — he’s been on the present for an extended whereas, so he is aware of higher than to spill beans like that. He did drop some hints, although. “Ghost does show up, and he does some … he’s very present and does some pretty cool things in Season 8.”
Is GhostBowl a factor? Can it’s one?
