‘Game of Thrones’ season 6: Showrunners give ‘apology’ over Hodor — sort of

LogoGame of Thrones” fans are still feeling a combination of sadness and frustration over some of the events of this past episode, and we understand why. How do you kill off such a beloved character and not have people upset?

Over the course of the past few days, it has become more and more apparent that Hodor is in fact gone from the show, at least in the form that we know him now. It’s incredibly distressing, and maybe that’s why on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night show executive producers David Benioff and D.B.¬†Weiss chose to issue an apology … sort of. They actually weren’t apologizing for killing Hodor, and instead were apologizing for how they have forever ruined the phrase “hold the door.” Everyone will from now on probably use “Hodor” in its place, which will more than likely annoy a good many people out there.

The sixth season continues with another new episode coming up this weekend, and this is one that will have the challenge of trying to follow up the story that we had this time around. Who wants to bet that this will be no easy task? Also, who wants to be that another important character or two dies before the end of the season? It just seems like a foregone conclusion to us, given the nature of this show, that Benioff and Weiss will do something else shocking.

Also, we love how at the end of the video one of the showrunners also meets their demise, further proving once again that anyone can die in this universe at any time.
