Is Hodor really dead? Many are devastated from seeing him go on the previous episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 but Hodor’s fate might not end there. Just like Jon Snow, he might be alive according to some speculations. This article might contain spoilers so read at own risk.
According to Inverse, his plight was not as mysterious as that of Benjen’s. However, the website stated that Hodor is “irrevocably dead.”
Although, there might be some instances that his “predicament will live on in the story.” But then, who knows? Maybe there is still a light at the end of the tunnel.
On the other hand, actor Kristian Nairn, who plays the beloved character, discussed his insights about being Hodor in IGN via phone interview.
Nairn said that he fell in love with his character because “it was a very sensitive character to play.” “It took me a very short time, actually, to fall in love with Hodor,” he exclaimed.
“I really realized there was quite a lot more I could do than I first imagined,” Nairn added. “There’s more to Hodor than just being the big guy, he has quite a lot more going on there,” the actor concluded.
When it comes to Hodor’s death and revival, the actor joking nodded to the interview that he could come back anytime as an extra. “No one will notice,” he exclaimed again.
He was also asked as well if there will be a “Zombie Hodor” by any chance, in which he said that he can no longer drop any spoilers. But seeing him eaten by White Walkers while saving Bran on the recent episode could indicate that he might become one.
Notably, “Game of Thrones” Season 6 has surprised many viewers by the sudden turn of events. First, of course, Jon Snow is alive, and then Arya Stark regained her eyesight. The possibilities are endless for Hodor to come back on “Game of Thrones.”
