In season 6 Episode 5 of Game of Thrones, it is finally revealed how Hodor got his name. I will not spoil it for those who haven’t seen the episode. Just let it be said that Hodor is his true name as it defines the very purpose of his life — to protect Bran and keep him alive.
While there have been memes and jokes made about Hodor, there is no question he is one of the beloved characters in Game of Thrones. And we cannot fathom how Bran will survive without him.
We are halfway through the season and yet winter has not come. It feels like winter may come by season 7 yet. By then, we will have shorter GOT seasons with only 7 episodes each. From the moment I started watching GOT, my only complaint is that there is never enough and looking forward, the episodes will become even shorter.
