'Game of Thrones': What That Hodor Twist Means for the Show's Future

Bran Stark's time-traveling abilities have deadly consequences for the past and future of Westeros.

Countless characters have died shockingly and tragically over the past six seasons of Game of Thrones, but there's something uniquely devastating about the show's latest casualty. In fact, it can only be described with a single word: Hodor.

Kristian Nairn's kind giant guided Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) all the way from Winterfell through the Wall and toward his magical destiny… and as it happens, Hodor's own path was guided by Bran. In the final moments of "The Door," Bran's green-seeing and warging abilities crossed the streams in such a way that he wargs into Hodor and orders him to "hold the door" from an army of the dead. It gives the present Hodor his final directive, and the past Hodor the new name and limited vocabulary that would haunt him for the rest of his life.

Not as sad to me as Bran's direwolf but yeah Hodor's moment was set up perfectly.

They need to cut down budget that's why they let summer ended up sacrificing as well in that episode which was ok and make sense but I don't think that will happen in the books.

(SPOILERS).......It really opens up a lot of fan theory now that bran can basically affect the past.
