The latest episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 had a rather rare sighting of one of the most loved CGI character of Game of Thrones. Yes, we are talking about Ghost, Jon Snow's direwolf. Ghost has been a huge asset for Jon considering how amazing he is at ripping throats. Fans had been eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of him ever since we last saw him in Season 6 as everyone waited for Jon to come back to life. What was disappointing though was the fact that Ghost was just placed in a scene where no one seemed to care about his presence. All those ignored pets, we feel you!

Ghost was spotted in the scene where Jon (Kit Harrington) and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) are having a word about disclosing Jon's true identity to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Although, we are sure that Ghost's blink-and-miss appearance in episode 2 promises that he will have a major role to play in the battle against the White Walkers in the next episode.
Earlier, in an interview to HuffPost, Game of Thrones' visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer had said, “Ghost does show up, and... he’s very present and does some pretty cool things in Season 8.”Arya Stark’s Nude Sex Scene With Gendry in Game of Thrones 8 Episode 2 Leaves Fans SHOCKED!

Game of Thrones fans certainly seemed delighted to see Jon's direwolf make a comeback and posted celebratory messages on social media. Some fans even took to social media to share memes of Ghost being neglected by Jon Snow after getting close with Daenerys's dragons.

With the Battle of Winterfell coming in Episode 3, we are looking forward to the direwolf standing by Jon's side to fight the White Walkers. The second episode of Season 8 released today and is currently airing on HotStar premium.
