Latest Episode of Game of Thrones leaves you in tears

Game-of-Thrones

We should have seen it coming. It’s Game of Thrones. Not only does the show have a track record of ripping out our hearts and stomping on them until we scream “No more!”, but this week’s episode, The Door, was the midseason episode. No way we were getting through that without taking some serious damage to our delicate hope-filled hearts. Largely, this is down to Bran Stark’s scenes, which after being absent for the entirety of Season 5, have emerged as this season’s highlights. Not necessarily because of Bran himself – ultimately he’s a cipher more for interesting story developments, not that that this is a bad thing when it means that we finally start to get explanations for some of the show’s mysteries.

“The Door” is different. It is full of scenes that are written with aesthetic intention and vision—scenes that exist not just to be gotten through but also to be looked at, listened to, and experienced. The episode is not just episode five of the sixth season, it is also a collection of arresting moments. This episode does not just have one stunningly directed moment, or one unforgettable shot; it has numerous, one right after the other. Not only have we lost one of the most beloved characters on the show, but it happened just seconds after we discovered the truth behind his origins. Oh you cruel, cruel man George R. R. Martin. We knew there had to be some meaning to the word ‘Hodor’ as soon as we realised at the beginning of the season that Wylis hadn’t always been a one-word man. As it turns out Hodor was actually “Hold the door” which is what Meera was shouting at Hodor when she was trying to escape with Bran from the White Walkers. Bran, who was at the time mind-melding with the dying Three-Eyed Raven, heard her tell him to warg into Hodor so they could escape, but in his confused state he warged into young Hodor in his vision. When he heard Meera telling him to “Hold the door” so did Wylis and it caused a sort of seizure which caused him to repeatedly yell “Hold the door! Hold the door! Hodor!” Yep, Bran and his super-convenient-at-explaining-the-past visions fucked up Hodor royally, but the large-hearted hero still died to save him. “The Door” succeeds is because of the number of times it return
