And yet! One episode of six has come and gone and there is STILL NO GHOST.
Don't get me wrong, it was really cool to finally see Jon ride a dragon just before he learned of his Targaryen heritage. But not having Ghost in the same episode is just frankly insulting.
Ghost is as important to Jon as Dany's dragons are to her. But here's Jon, riding a dragon, and not even mentioning Ghost?!
You know what would have been nice? If Jon actually introduced Dany to Ghost.
But I would have settled with any scene with Ghost in it, to be honest. Even if he was in the background.
I mean, the Season 8 premiere was full of callbacks to the past — especially to Season 1, Episode 1. You know, the episode where Jon finds Ghost. Why couldn't they include a nod to this?!
I get that it's really expensive to include the direwolves. But if you can afford a five-minute dragon ride through the mountains for funsies, you can include one of the most important characters in Jon Snow's life.
You can't just build up a character — and tie that character to the very identity of one of the main characters of the show — and then just conveniently forget they exist.
To be honest, I'm very concerned Ghost will only show up just in time to be killed off.
GHOST DESERVES BETTER.
Here's hoping Ghost and Jon get a good moment in Episode 2. Otherwise WE RIOT.
