These ‘Game Of Thrones’ Truthers Are In Complete Denial About Shaggydog

The most upsetting part about last night’s Game of Thrones wasn’t the Tower of Joy reveal (or lack there of), or watching Arya get hit in the face with a stick over and over again — it was Smalljon Umber presenting Ramsay Bolton and Harald Karstark with Shaggydog’s head. Also, Rickon Stark and Osha being held hostage, but mostly Shaggydog. It’s hard out there for a direwolf.

Ghost: Nearly died along with Jon Snow
Grey Wind: Killed at the Red Wedding
Lady: Killed by Ned Stark under Robert Baratheon’s orders
Nymeria: Running around somewhere in the Riverlands
Summer: Stuck in a tree with Bran
Shaggydog: Killed by Smalljon Umber

Or did he? Some Game of Thrones fans are in complete denial.

It was a fake Shaggydog. The Umbers even mention they are the farthest North and the most likely to actually have access to other direwolves. So they found a dead one (or killed one) and this is all a giant ruse to fuck Ramsay. Shaggydog lives!!! (Via)

That last truther might actually be onto something. Not about Shaggydog — the poor direwolf is for sure dead — but about how the Umbers presenting Rickon to Ramsey could be part of a larger plan. We’ll explain how in today’s recap. Until then, let’s watch a montage of Shaggydog’s greatest moments.

Gone too soon.
