In Game of Thrones S8E04, fans were very upset after Jon Snow was reunited with his direwolf, Ghost, but seemed to ignore him.
Here are just a few reactions:
- Vox: Why Game of Thrones fans are outraged over the show’s treatment of [spoiler]
- Harper's Bazaar: Jon Snow Didn't Even [spoiler] in Game of Thrones Tonight
- Buzzfeed: People Are Very Unhappy With Jon Snow After "Game Of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 4
Then in S8E06, Jon saw Ghost again at Castle Black and showed him affection.
Was this very short scene edited in due to fan outrage over previous episodes in the season? It lasts only a few seconds, and I don't remember a prior instance of anyone touching a direwolf in the shows, aside from when they were first found.
