SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8 EPISODE 6
The animals in 'Game of Thrones' are really carrying the torch for great storylines this season on the HBO show. Although fans weren't too happy with the way things ended with Daenerys and the rest of the gang including Missandei and the Night King, If there's one happy arc in the series finale, it had to be Ghost's reunion with Jon at the Night's Watch. "Goodboi ghost finally got his pat and that's all that matters," one fan said, summing up the internet's emotions about the much awaited and highly demanded reunion.
In spite of the other shock twists and the untimely death of the Mother of Dragons, it appears that Ghost's happy ending bandaged the wound a little bit. "All I needed was for Ghost to get the scritches he deserved so I’m good," wrote one fan while another said, "I can finally go into retirement knowing #ghost got the pet and attention he deserved".
However, some fans even felt that this was a last-minute change in the series because of the backlash it was getting. "The writers when they saw how angry we were when Ghost didn’t get a pat in episode 4," said a fan while another said, "If Jon wouldn’t have pet Ghost there would be riots in the streets tomorrow."
The fandom had been livid earlier that Ghost, Jon's direwolf, hadn't received the attention they believed he so truly deserved. Before his brief and very unacknowledged appearance in episode 4, we had seen him faithfully staying by Jon's dead body in the sixth season after he was shot. Ghost does look like just another prop in the background and if you must remember, this is the boy that followed his master Jon Snow and the rest of the Night's Watch as they ventured deep into Wildling territory in their Great Ranging in season 2 and then saved everyone's life by beating the Thenn warrior in season 4.
Another animal, rather beast, who proved his loyalty was Drogon, as he mourned the death of his mother. Refusing to let anyone nea her, he took her in his claws and flew away from the hateful city where she met her death. Both Ghost and Drogon stayed loyal to their masters right till the end.
