Hodor Shocker: The Internet's Best Reactions to Game of Thrones' "Hold the Door!" Scene

by at .  Updated at .

If you didn't catch last night's episode of Game of Thrones, then proceed no further, as this article has more spoilers than the Iron Throne has sharp edges.

Come to think of it, even if you didn't watch the scene with your own tear-clouded eyes, you've probably heard by now that Hodor is the latest GoT favorite to kick the bucket.

Not only was Bran's gentle giant (presumably) torn apart by Walkers, but the tragedy was compounded by the Hodor origin story that the writers masterfully worked into the same scene.

"The interesting thing is it's kinda left open. You don't actually see him [die]. It's implied," he said. "So who knows? He may come back as a White Walker, maybe he got away." 

Yeah, thanks for trying to offer some hope, dude, but the thought of Hodor as a White Walker is pure nightmare fuel.

Check out some of the Internet's best reactions to one of GoT's most surprising twists yet in the gallery below, and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to have your heart broken all over again.

And remember, Hodor morghulis - all Hodors must die.

Yes, Hodor went out doing what he was meant to do. Some say that makes the situation less sad. The tears streaming down our face beg to differ.

This time, the death hasn't even happened in George R.R. Martin's books yet. We blame him anyway.
