The ink has dried, the book has been written, and the door has closed on the life of Hodor the half giant. This week’s episode of Game of Thrones suffered one of the most emotional losses the show has seen yet and your hosts at The Cast Beyond the Wall are still cleaning up the tissues leading into this week’s show. Hodor’s sacrifice in The Door won’t be forgotten, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about some of the other major turns and reveals throughout the episode.
The Cast of Caleb, Daniel, and Austin continue their tradition of inviting a guest to the rotating fourth host spot by talking with the director the upcoming Oklahoma film, Electric Nostalgia. When he’s not working on releasing his film or producing his interview webseries called Talkies, Jacob is also an avid Game of Thrones watcher with more than a few things to say about the series.
This week’s conversation has us talking about the unintended consequences of many of our heroes including the fallout between Sansa and Littlefinger, Bran’s misuse of his own powers, and the outcome of the highly anticipated Kingsmoot. Before paying last respects to Hodor, we discuss the implications of Brans impact on the past and how this brings an entirely new element of time travel into the show’s DNA. What are the new rules and what does the passing of the Three Eyed Raven mean for Bran?
What are your thoughts on Bran’s newfound powers, Hodor’s swan song, and the reveal about the white walkers? Join the conversation and let us know what you think!
