The fact that the direwolves specifically ghost have been totally ignored has made this nothing more than a poorly acted soap opera. The character development and poor insight on the part of the directors has disappointed me. If you did not read the books you would have no idea what is going on. Further the characters are so poorly developed that each incident seems to have occurred in a vacuum with no connection or significance to other characters. This will get cancelled before season two begins filming
Seriously, the direwolves are all that matters? I think your analysis is pretty silly. Everyone I've seen on message boards or talked to in real life who are show watchers but not book readers likes it.
