    R + L = J .... but so what?

    That's why I qualify the White Ravens, which were most certainly nearby when Ned died. He looked right at them. Ghost's connection to Jon and overall behavior is much different than the other direwolves. First off, the fact he hasn't been held captive, or run off, or died is unique in and of itself. The wolves are fiercely loyal, yes, but that has gotten them killed or trapped many times. Ghost is seemingly smarter and has much better timing than any of the other ones, which I would argue is because it's actually Ned. Bran learns of R+L=J, and knows Jon's lack of knowledge about it, and knows only one way he can not only protect Jon (the true heir in the North as well as probably all of Westeros), but also help his dad fulfill his deathbed promise to Lyanna, is to permanently put Ned back by Jon's side.

    Not so tin-foily Ned doesn't need warg powers in my theory. Bran needs the two powers we already know he has -- warging and time travel. If Bran travels back, wargs into Ned, then takes on one of the white ravens that is nearby Ned when he is beheaded, then he could safely travel to the north where Ghost is. Thus, Ghost being alive before Neds death is a requirement of the theory. Ghost isn't a reincarnation of Ned, it is physically Ned himself, put there by Bran because of the knowledge he has on RLJ and the promise to Lyanna.

    I tried to make a post about this exact point, not sure where it went on here. R+L=J HAS to mean something to the show. I always presumed it was going to be JS's claim to the throne as KITN, but obviously now that's not it. I actually believe the big "reveal" relating to this will be that Jon's wolf, Ghost, is actually Ned Stark. It explains why we have gone to such painstaking detail for Bran to learn about the Tower of Joy incident and all the details around it, it explains why Bran has "seen" Ned's execution in his vision (as well as the white ravens flying away), and it also explains the extremely suspicious "popping up" of Ghost every single time Jon Snow is in big trouble or unable to defend himself (after all, if honorable Ned wouldn't keep a promise to his sister on a death bed, what promise would he keep?) There are definitely some other pieces of evidence that further support this theory, but I absolutely believe R+L=J is going to be the conduit to let us know that Ned is Jon's wolf. I think it will play out with Bran realizing the implication of Jon's lineage and the importance of Ned's promise, and he'll warg back into Ned, then into a white raven (with Ned looking up prior to execution), then into Ghost.
