Jon Snow’s trusty companion Ghost was lacking for the whole seventh season of Game of Thrones. Fans have been curious as to the place Ghost may have been, whereas GoT did present us one other direwolf. Arya reunited with Nymeria after being separated since season one. Arya infamously chased her direwolf away to avoid wasting its life, and the 2 reunited for a short second in “Stormborn.” It appears like Jon is in for a reunion himself, when the ultimate season of Game of Thrones touches down subsequent yr.
GoT VFX Supervisor Joe Bauer sat down with HuffPost in August, and revealed that Ghost could be reappearing in season eight. “Oh, you’ll see him once more. He has a good quantity of display screen time in Season eight,” he said. “He does present up.” As for the rationale why the direwolves have been used so sporadically, Bauer claims that coaching actual life wolves is not any straightforward activity. “The direwolves are powerful since you don’t wish to get them incorrect, so we find yourself at all times taking pictures actual wolves and doing a scaling trick with them, however the true wolves solely behave in sure methods,” said Bauer. “I believe that has one thing to do with why the direwolves are within the present however they’re not possibly as integral as they’re within the books.”
