Game of Thrones: That heartbreaking Hodor twist was George R.R. Martin's idea

Hodor‘s death on Game of Thrones was possibly the worst death that the show has ever presented, and a lot of fans still continue to mourn over his sad demise of sacrificing himself by holding the door against the Wights to save Bran and Meera. Hodor, without having said a word apart from ‘Hodor‘, managed to get so many of us fans teary eyed for days on end, and it still manages to hit a nerve. However, some people do find a way of turning this tragic incident into some dark humour. It was none other than actor Kristian Nairn‘s mother.

The actor who played Hodor, recently posted a picture of a ‘Hodor’ door stopper in his mother’s home, with the caption of a Shakespeare reference: “Really, Mum??? Et tu, Brute? Hahahaha.”

Hodor themed doorstops have gotten pretty popular as Game of Thrones merchandise, and not long after season 6 got over. Fans have stocked up on those, but knowing that someone like Kristian Nairn’s mom would do the same is pretty funny. Check out the picture Kristian posted:

Game of Thrones fans react to Bran Stark becoming King

Game of Thrones has always been about who ends up on the Iron Throne, and in the series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we got to see the Iron Throne melted down by Dragon fire.

However, we did get a new ruler for Westeros, one who was selected by all the important lords and ladies of Westeros — Bran Stark. This came out of nowhere for most fans of the show, who were expecting Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen to end up on the throne. The fans took to Twitter with a variety of reactions:

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 had several awe-inspiring moments to be sure. But the one that hogged all the limelight was a Starbuck cup sitting pretty in front of Daenerys Targaryen on the Winterfell high table. Fans have been pointing to Emilia Clarke as the Mother of the Starbucks Gaffe. Emilia finally addressed those accusations on Thursday and promptly passed up the blame to – wait for it – Jason Momoa!

Yep, that’s right. Khal Drogo was supposedly passing by Winterfell and sneaked in to mark his presence on the screen!

Here’s Emilia’s Instagram post ‘explaining’ the situation. Her caption read: “Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea… oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid-filming cuppa”.

The picture shows Emilia holding a Starbucks cup and posing with Momoa and Peter Dinklage. Emilia is trying to pass off herself as the mere ‘cupbearer’ and implying it was Momoa who was actually drinking from that infamous cup when he visited the set.

The cup, in reality, was not even from Starbucks and was soon removed from the frame. But that didn’t stop everyone from making some hilarious connections. HBO offered a funny response saying: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea.” Liam Cunningham (who plays Davos Seaworth on the show) brought a Starbuck cup to his interview on Conan, and claimed it found its way there “probably because Emilia drinks too much coffee.”

But now the Mother of Dragon has spoken, and have absolved herself of any blame in the whole matter. All of us plebs can go home now!

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4: The Last of the Starks

Game of Thrones is one of the best TV series to ever grace the medium, and we have come to expect a lot of things from it. However, it’s impossible to always get everything right, and there are often some mistakes left in the final edit. One such mistake happened in today’s episode, Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 4, “The Last of the Starks” where a Starbucks coffee cup was spotted in the middle of the scene, and the internet was not having it. Read on!

Now, this happened in a scene where see Tormund, very drunk, praising Jon Snow for all of his accomplishments. In the background, Daenerys is sitting at the table, spiralling into paranoia about Jon’s natural charisma and how much he is loved in the North. For a second, we see the shot pan out, and there’s a Starbucks coffee cup right next to Emilia Clarke. The fans had a field day after seeing this little goof, and it became an instant meme:

Well, let’s hope there aren’t any goofs left in what’s remaining of Game of Thrones. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
