Spoilers ahead. So if you haven’t yet watched episode 3 of Game of Thrones Season 8, do not proceed.
If you have, then mate, we need to talk about what the fuck just happened!
That was an intense battle sequence, one that I never thought I would be watching on TV. Some of our favourite characters died and holy hell, Arya Stark just murdered the Night King and ended the war.
But while all this was happening, we sort of forgot about two of our favourite characters- Ghost and Rhaegal.
Ghost charged into battle with Ser Jorah and the Dothraki. The Dothraki horde as we all saw, were eviscerated at the very beginning of the battle. But we didn’t see Ghost return.
And Rhaegal was badly injured by Viserion. I mean, he literally crashlanded, throwing Jon off his back.
And we got no update on them!
But fear not.
The preview for episode 4, shows two dragons flying in the sky. And since there are now only two of them in the world, it’s safe to assume that Rhaegal is one of them.
But boy, he must really be banged up though. That was a tough beatdown he took.
And as far as Ghost is concerned, the poor boy was seen for a brief second in the preview when Dany and the others were burning the bodies of the dead just outside the castle of Winterfell.
Look, Ghost’s entire existence is based on the CGI budget. Anyhow, I would still like to know how he escaped an entire undead army!
All that being said, I’m so glad that both of them are doing well! Because let’s be honest. Animals dying hurts a lot more than people dying.
