With the threat of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) vanquished, the Wildings are free to return North, led by Tormund (Kristofer Hivju), who is entrusted with caring for Ghost as the loyal creature belongs north of the wall.
But fans are taking issue with Snow's snubbing Ghost, who was left looking dejected as his master departed.
Viewers were earlier relieved to see Ghost had survived the Battle of Winterfell when he was spotted as part of the funeral scene mourning the casualties of last episode's epic battle. The slight now has some Game of Thrones fans almost wishing Snow was among them:
