‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Apologize For Killing Off Hodor, Sort Of
“Game of Thrones” creators has issued an apology for the killing Hodor in last Sunday’s The Door. The showrunners of the hit HBO medieval fantasy series sent a sincere video apology to Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the episode although not for the reason you might think.Advertisement
According to People.com, the duo for the first time issued a heartfelt apology for an episode. Considering the amount of time, not to mention body count, since they began murdering popular characters, an apology is long overdue, right?
Unfortunately, they are not showing any remorse for ripping our hearts out. Instead, they have issued an apology for the idiots who will now say “Hodor” every time you pass through a door. (That’s something! Play with us some more!)
According to CNET, they even had an example of a man entering an elevator with the alleged idiot yelling for him to “Hold the Door” and then ask him if he watched the show. The creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss say they were sorry for not realizing that people can be REALLY annoying until Benioff drops dead with a knife his back.
We should have seen these deaths from a mile away considering that it is ‘Game of Thrones‘ and to top it off they are associated with the Starks. The demise of the show’s gentle giant was perhaps the most heroic act ever seen in the show according to many fans.
Hodor was, as actor Isaac Hempstead Wright puts it, the only character in the series that genuinely doesn’t have an agenda. He is merely serving Bran not as a master but as his friend and his final act was his own conscious decision.
However, don’t count him out just yet. He may be dead but he was essentially killed by the White Walkers so we might still see Kristian Nairn walking in the snow as a wight in “Game of Thrones.”
