The second episode of Game of Thrones' final season aired on Sunday, April 21, and although none of our beloved characters have yet died, the episode did see the reintroduction of a character who's been long absent from our screens.
*Warning: Mild spoilers ahead*
For years now, fans have been wondering what in the world happened to Jon's beloved direwolf, Ghost!
But then... could it be?!
Yes! There he is! In the background of an establishing shot on the outer wall of Winterfell!
Though tucked away in the background, Ghost is clearly still alive and well!
Twitter rejoiced! GHOST IS BACK!
The internet loves dogs, especially giant, white ones who've spent their lives protecting our main characters.
Ghost hasn't been seen onscreen for literally years, which led many to question whether he'd ever return.
It seems the show's producers just wanted to give fans a little reassurance that Ghost was ok (although perhaps a bit expensive to render on screen for full scenes).
A few fans wished Ghost's apparent reappearance had been given a little more explanation.
With Ghost back in play, people have big plans for how the last four episodes of the series are going to play out.
With only a handful of episodes left, each longer than an hour, fans are preparing for what's likely a heartbreaking conclusion to the epic series. At least Ghost will be there to enjoy the ride along with us.
