Game of Thrones Producers Apologize for All the Terrible Hodor Jokes They’ve Unleashed Into the World

On Sunday night, Game of Thrones killed off Hodor, and in the process finally revealed why he could only say “Hodor.” (It was a mangled version of the phrase “Hold the door.”) Now showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to apologize. Not for killing Hodor — they’ve killed way too many characters to start apologizing now — but for inspiring a whole bunch of “Hodor” jokes in elevators, subway cars, and office entrances. How are they going to sleep at night? Well, the giant piles of money help.
