Fans react to Jon Snow's rude goodbye to his direwolf Ghost



Game of Thrones Season 8 is not going too well. The show has been getting a lot of flak from the fans for dropping quality in writing and illogical plot points. One of the things that bothered the fans from this weeks episode — Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 4, “The Last of the Starks“, was Jon Snow and his rude goodbye to his direwolf Ghost. Read on!

When Jon is leaving Winterfell, and Tormund bids him goodbye. Jon then asks him to take Ghost along with him, since Ghost would like the real North even better. Jon hugs Tormund, Samwell and Gilly and we then see Jon leave, and Ghost longingly looks at him, but Jon leaves without even petting him, just sharing a look. This upset a lot of fans:

Ghost broken & beaten. Saw his brothers & sisters die. Watched Jon his owner, master and best friend get killed. Chained & starved AND YET fought for the North & the realm of men. Standing one side with not so much as a “good boy”

We don’t deserve Ghost

Well, let’s just hope we see them reunite, although we doubt that’s going to happen. How did you feel about Jon’s goodbye to Ghost? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!

The Game of Thrones finale was packed with a lot of things going down, but there were two very important props that we could have used a better look at – the books! “A Song of Ice and Fire” and “The Book of Brothers” made brief appearances in the finale. Now, thanks to HBO, we have a better look at both the books. Read on!

HBO’s Game of Thrones behind the scenes blog, Making Game of Thrones recently featured both the props, in a batch of photos that give you a good look at them. We saw “A Song of Ice and Fire” shown off to the small council by Samwell Tarly, who reveals that Archmaester Ebrose compiled it, with the title being his own suggestion. Take a better look at it, below:

We had seen The Book of Brothers, also known as “the White Book”, before in the show, and we saw it in the finale, with Brienne filling in the pages for Jaime Lannister. Take a better look at it, below:

The costumes on Game of Thrones have always been more than just clothes, weaving in symbols and meanings from the story being told on screen. It is but natural, then, that the Game of Thrones series finale will have costumes that speak volumes even on their own. The Game of Thrones blog recently delved deep into three such costumes, belonging to Sansa Stark, Brandon Stark, and Ser Brienne of Tarth.

Why these three, out of all the characters that we encounter in Season 8 episode 6 ‘The Iron Throne’? Probably because all three went up significantly in their respective power ladders – Sansa became Queen in the North, Bran became King of the Six Kingdoms, and Brienne became the first Lady Commander of the Kingsguard in Westerosi history. Their costumes reflect this shift in power, along with their personal histories.

Sansa Stark, Queen in the North – Coronation Gown


Sansa’s coronation dress is the epitome of power dressing, with all her loyalties and history displayed in full glory. It also follows Sansa’s habit of borrowing elements from other power women she has been close to. Game of Thrones costume designer Michelle Clapton breaks it down in an Instagram post.

The fabric used in this dress is the same as the ‘Dark Sansa’ dress – which Sansa wore during her stay in the Vale. It symbolized her shift from a naive young girl to a player in the game of Thrones. The dye used in the coronation dress, on the other hand, is the same as Margery’s wedding gown, symbolizing the friendship between the two of them.

The embroidery and detailings predictably include the Stark Direwolf, but also fish scales, which points back to her House Tully roots, from mother Catelyn’s side. Her crown also follows this pattern of Direwolf heads melting into fish scales. The red Weirwood leaves in the train symbolize her territorial power – the wintry North in all its glory.

Brandon Stark, King of the Six Kingdoms – Royal Doublet


Bran has finally let go of the heavy fur coat that accompanied him throughout the series and embraced velvet. This is the first time we see him in this fabric, which symbolizes his royal standing. But he is not just a king, he is also the Three-Eyed Raven – the most significant part of his identity now. That identity is clearly depicted in the dark grey colour and feather detailing of his doublet.

Serving as a Kingsguard is the highest honour for any knight in the realm, and Brienne makes it right to the top of even that motley crowd. Her skill at arms and rock-solid moral compass combined made her a force to reckon with. Her new golden armour reflects her glory and power – every inch of which she deserves.
