(Spoilers ahead! You've been warned.)

If there was one reunion all of Game of Thrones universe has waited with baited breaths for, it was, unarguably, direwolf Ghost meeting his master Jon Snow in the North. It finally took place in the final moments of the show's last offering.

How did it happen?

Jon Snow, upon seeing Dany turning into Mad Queen, ends up slaying her at King's Landing. The Queen's death prompts the Lords and Ladies of Westeros to choose their new ruler and after a brief discussion and voting, Bran Stark is the chosen king of the six kingdoms.

Tyrion Lannister, Bran's newly appointed hand, instructs Jon Snow that as a punishment for murdering the queen, he has to return to the Wall and join the Nights Watch.

On his return to the Wall, Jon unites with Ghost and pets his beloved buddy.

While the season may have not gotten a universal nod from the fans, the reunion pretty much made the Game of Thrones forget all their woes.

In case Dany's violence on the King's Landing has blurred your memory, here's a quick refresher from the show's one of the most heartbreaking scenes.

After the end of Night King and his army of the dead, Tormund Giantsbane bid farewell to Jon Snow and announced that the Wildlings would return to the North and get back to their usual lives. Jon, the King in the North, who was marching towards King's Landing asked Tormund to take care of the goodest of good boys, Ghost, for the direwolf couldn't survive the weather in the South.

While his decision made all the sense in the world, the makers thought it was okay for Jon Snow to leave without petting the loyal and cute CGI furball.

The scene, for obvious reasons, led to severe social media backlash and the Internet took an oath to never "forgive" Jon for being so heartless.

Thankfully, the makers had thought this through and decided to have a reunion of the inseparable buddies in Game of Thrones finale.
