Who is the Ghost at Winterfell? The stories at Winterfell had me on the edge, I think someone we have already heard about is there in the castle. Someone we have forgotten. A Stark?

The ghost was Theon.

If you're asking who killed Big Walder, my guess is Ramsay. To cause chaos, mostly. Or Manderly, to prove a point.

It was Bran flexing his greenseer powers through the weirwood that killed Big Walder!

No, no, it was Hodor developing greenseer powers and causing Big Walder's death!

Could it be Eddard? The boys dreamed/saw their father in the crypt after he died, and there has been no proper burial for him there as yet.

Anyone NOT a Stark who tries to lord over Winterfell meets an awful fate, if there can be any lesson learned from Theon's experience. Doubtless and countless horrors await Ramsey Snow.

Big Walder is still alive. It was Little Walder who was killed, and quite possibly Big Walder who did the killing. Only on that murder, though - the other ones I thought it was clear that Mance's spearwives did it.

Didn't the spearwives admit that they killed Yellow Dick and the others? They only deny killing Little Walder (who was the more brutal of the two, IIRC.)

I like the idea that Big Walder killed him.

I think it is Theon too but it's really vague. The spearwives denied it when asked by Theon, but maybe they were mocking him.

Theon's much too weak in body and mind to kill Little Walder, plus he has no motive. Big Walder makes a bit of sense.

Most of it was the spear wives, but I think the Frey was part of Manderlay's work.

Yes. This makes sense and is very likely.

My guess is Big Walder or Ramsay. Offchance of Manderly.

Yes, Manderly did that before he got to Winterfell though.

Could be Lady Dustin, she may be playing her own version of the Game of Thrones and wanted Manderly and Frey to clash sooner.

If it was Manderly I don't think he would have said that epic line about Little Walder growing into a Frey. It would be interesting if it was Big Walder and how this could effect the Frey's in the future.

I think that Manderly killed Little Walder. His daughter, Wylla, was betrothed to Little Walder and I'm sure he didn't want that marriage to happen.

I think there are ghosts of Starks in the crypts since they've been referenced in one form or another since GoT. However, the title I took several ways: Bran seeing from the weirwood and Theon (being a ghost of himself) having to face his own personal ghosts from Winterfell.
