Hodor “Hold the Door” meeting his destiny.

Hold the Door

I thought the music was very touching for final scene of The Door, Game of Thrones, Season 6, Episode 5. With the intensity and chaos of what was happening, the decision to favor a gentle motif was a perfect counterbalance. It made the scene heartbreaking, and probably led to the emotional response from Game of Thrones fans.

It’s truly amazing that George RR Martin planned the “Hold the Door” reveal from the very beginning. How can this entire story, from start to finish, with all of these characters, be in someone’s mind? I’m not sure what I’m doing tomorrow — yet there are people who have plotted alternate universes in their entirety.
