Once you've wiped the tears away from the tragedy that was last night's "Game of Thrones" episode, get ready for this crazy Internet moment that may or may not be real.
On "GoT" Sunday night, viewers figured out that Bran was the one responsible for turning Hodor into the Hodor he is today, after suffering from a deathly attack from the wights.
Bran, while in a vision of the past, appears to somehow warg into a young Hodor -- then referred to as Willis. In the present, Hodor was being instructed to "hold the door" to hold back the wights while Meera Reed escaped with Bran. There's some sort of connection between the past and present Hodors, so when Hodor in the present is being killed by wights, it totally screws with Past Hodor's mind. The young Willis begins saying "hold the door," which eventually turns into "Hodor." BRB, still crying.
Though that twist took nearly all "GoT" viewers by surprise, there was one person -- a user named "Myrddin" -- who correctly predicted the meaning of "Hodor" eight years ago on a http://asoiaf.westeros.org/ message board. On Feb. 20, 2008, Myrddin wrote:
"The poor guy is just asking someone to hold the door for him, since he's always carrying someone else around. After a while, 'Hold the door' became 'Hold the doorHold the doorHoldoorHodoor. Dammit! Hold the door!' His mind finally snapped, and now all he can say is Hodor."
There's no telling who the identity of this person really is, but we have a feeling it could be George R.R. Martin trolling us ...
