We spent six seasons hearing Hodor repeat his name back to other characters, and the moment we find out its meaning is the moment they take him away. Was it powerful? Yes. Would it also have been fun if they went out for drinks and apps and he finally admitted his full name was Todd Hodor? (“I’m weird like that. Love to mix it up with my friends. Another round of Southwestern Egg Rolls, everybody?”) That would have given us too much pleasure though, and that is not what we’re here for. That was the perfect way for Hodor to go-selflessly protecting Bran and Meera. He was a great character, and now he’s an even better trivia question.
