There are still a bunch of fun theories and details going around out in the Game of Thrones fandom. Let’s see the cool detail about the surviving Stark kids and their respective direwolves:
The starks became the names of the dire wovles
Jon = ghost (doesn't exist to outside world in the far north)
Sansa = lady ( lady of winderfell and Queen of the North)
Arya = nymeria (warrior Queen fled by sea to find a new home)
Bran = summer hope after winter #GameOfThonesFinale

Let’s break it down…
Jon = Ghost
This bond is the most noticeable. Jon and Ghost are the original outliers of their packs and they ended up together in the far North in the end. Let’s hope they’re never divided again!
Sansa = Lady
Although Lady was TRAGICALLY put down way the heck back in Season 1, it’s very appropriate that, in the end, her mama Sansa became the Lady of Winterfell and Queen in the North.
Arya = Nymeria
Both of them declined to come home to Winterfell and left for greener meadows. Arya, as we know, is off to discover what’s “west of Westeros” and Nymeria, who we last saw in Season 7, is running wild with her own pack now — which is basically what she’s up to in the books, too.
Bran = Summer
This comparison is a little more symbolic, but Bran as the new King of the Six Kingdoms pretty much represents hope and, somewhat, the end of Winter as well. And what’s the opposite of Winter? Summer.
Obviously, while this detail is very cool, a few fans just couldn’t help but indicate the unlucky endings of the other Stark children, too:

Rickon = shaggydog (shot like a dog for sport)

But, mostly, people were very into this comparison:
@Qu33rQu33ry 🤯🤯 okay I’ll accept this. They’ve been saying the dire wolves would play a big part in the last season.

So, let’s not settle on the depressing things and just be glad for the members of the pack that survived!
