Game of Thrones showrunners issue apology after huge twist but not for that

Game Of Thrones

The creators of the Game of Thrones TV series have issued an apology of sorts.

This article contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season six.

The latest episode of Game of Thrones will go down as one of the best in the entire series, with the final few minutes prompting gasps and tears aplenty.

For those who are yet to catch up with season six it is best you stop here, but for everyone else, showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have issued an unexpected apology on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Rather than saying sorry for arguably the most heart breaking death in the history of Game of Thrones, Weiss and Benioff have instead apologised for the inevitable shouts that will now accompany anyone who asks you to hold the door.

“We’re sorry for all the idiots who will, from now on, be shouting ‘Hodor’ every time you go through a door,” Benioff said.

“We forgot how annoying people can be,” Weiss added. “That’s our bad. Again, so, so sorry. People are the worst.”

The apology comes after Bran’s faithful servant was revealed to have had his destiny mapped out years earlier, a hero disguised as anything but.

Game of Thrones has returned to its best following the relatively disappointing fifth season (despite the superb Hardhome) and with five more episodes to go before another break, expect more revelations and plenty of deaths to excite and upset in equal measure.
