“Game of Thrones” fans, beware. Spoilers below.
Just when you thought HBO’s “Game of Thrones” couldn’t possibly surprise viewers any more, Jewish producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff go ahead and kill off Hodor, perhaps the sweetest, most harmless character in the show’s history.
For years, the two have been unapologetically decapitating, dismembering, drawing, quartering, burning — you get the idea— characters with nary a thought to the viewers’ devastation and broken hearts. And they are not about to start now.
So when Weiss and Benioff made a surprise apology video on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” while seated on a couch strewn with money, they were only remorseful for the annoying jokes their latest death has spawned. Hodor, who we now know is a fragmented version of “Hold the door,” has made the Monday morning after the show particularly irritating, especially when doors are involved.
Apology not accepted!
