Did you see the latest Game of Thrones episode, Hold The Door? DID YOU? That’s the question ripping through offices and schools and shops this morning, because season six episode five was a big’un.
DID YOU SEE IT? If not, you’d best look away now.
Here’s a gif of happier days gone by to give you a chance to.
Now, on with the Hodor show.
We finally discovered the origins of Hodor’s name – and repeated mutterings of it – and it was just too much for some to handle.

But those mind-blowing revelations couldn’t dull the pain as the loyal Stark stable boy died at the hands of the Wights in the line of duty.

Some said it was the most horrid and heartbreaking death of the whole series…
— Mason (@MasonKohl) May 23, 2016
Others found themselves instantly at the anger stage of their grief…
Damn you #GameOfThrones

Grief was a recurring theme, actually.

Along with sheer TRAUMA.

Hodor’s death was a symbolic one, the circumstances of which are set to have widespread repercussions among society as a whole. *raises philosopher’s cap*
I'm still emotionally unprepared to hold the door. Chivalry is officially dead. #GameofThrones

Holding doors will just never be the same again.

And it’s ALL BRAN’S FAULT.
Anyone else notice that Bran not following directions has caused like 90% of all the problems in Westeros?

The evidence speaks for itself.

And the boy agrees.
Nice one, Bran. ????

Meanwhile, WON’T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE DIREWOLVES
#GameofThrones can you just stop ruining all my hopes and dreams? You can kill all the humans but leave the wolves A.L.O.N.E. :'(
— Joana Malaquias (@malaquias_j) May 23, 2016
I just want the direwolves to be okay, is that too much to ask? #GameofThrones

And amid the grief, madness and sadness, it’s refreshing to see some fans haven’t forgotten what REALLY matters here.

Tormund smiling at Brienne was the funniest/best thing that's happened in six series #GameofThrones

Alright #GameofThrones go sit in a corner and think about what you just did.
