Hodor. Hold the door. Hold door. Hodor.

RIP.

Game of Thrones" beloved gentle giant appears to have perished at the hands of the trắng Walkers, after Bran Stark "warged into" (took control of) his body during the attack on the cave where they"d been hiding out. It"s a gut punch, since Hodor was one of the rare sources of joy in a deeply depressing show.

But in addition khổng lồ being tragic, it"s also game-changing. It sure looks lượt thích Bran just manipulated time, creating a links between Hodor"s mind in the past và the present that warped the young Hodor"s mind. That means Bran just demonstrated an ability lớn manipulate time và change the past — a skill with potentially earth-shattering consequences for the Game of Thrones universe.

How Hodor"s mind was broken

*
(HBO) Ever since Hodor was introduced in season one, one of the big questions surrounding the character is "why is "Hodor" the only word he can say?" Now we"ve finally gotten the answer — & it explains what happened.

In that last scene, Bran is using his Greenseer powers, the name for his ability lớn observe events in the past and have visions of the future. Most of his plot this season has been spent exploring those abilities with his mysterious tree-bound mentor, the Three-Eyed Raven. In this episode, the two of them are watching a scene of a young Ned Stark at Winterfell, with young Hodor in the background (he worked in Winterfell as a stableboy).

When the white Walkers attack Bran"s cave, Meera and the Three-Eyed Raven urge Bran to use his "warg" powers on Hodor, a longstanding ability of Bran"s that is separate from Greensight. Warging allows Bran lớn take control of the bodies of other beings and use them as if they were his own. Other characters, like the wildling Orell from season three, have only been shown using this ability on animals. But Bran can and has done it to Hodor.

This happened for the first time in season three, when Bran và his companions were hiding (from Orell, coincidentally). Hodor"s yelling threatened to lớn give them away, và Bran warged into him to calm him down.

Bran could have been secretly manipulating everything that we"ve seen on the show so far

Throughout the show, Hodor has been either afraid of fighting or unwilling to bởi it. Bran taking control of his body toàn thân is the only way lớn wield his massive strength in defense of Bran và his friends. In season four, when they were captured by Roose Bolton"s man Locke, Bran warged into Hodor to lớn kill Locke and escape. Hence why Bran needs to take over Hodor now: They need him lớn get up & help escape the trắng Walkers.

So Bran wargs into Hodor — but crucially, he does it while he"s still observing the past. Bran is watching the past and controlling Hodor"s body toàn thân in the present at the same time.

That appears lớn have created a psychic link between past Hodor & present Hodor. We see past Hodor"s eyes go white, which is what happens when Bran seizes control. Past Hodor hears Meera Reed yelling, "Hold the door," through the link, which he starts repeating. He eventually shortens this lớn "Hodor," & that becomes the only thing he can say for the rest of his life after that event.

So by seizing control of Hodor"s mind in the present, just before his death, Bran screwed up his mind decades in the past. Bran created Hodor as we"ve known him on the show. Bran is responsible for the destruction of Hodor"s mind.

Game of Thrones has been setting up Bran"s time-travel powers for a while

*
(HBO) This isn"t the first time the show has suggested Bran has time-travel powers. Two weeks ago, during "Oathbreaker," Bran watched his father Ned"s battle at the Tower of Joy. He yelled at Ned, and it seemed like Ned turned his head.

At the time, the Three-Eyed Raven suggested that Bran had done nothing & Ned had turned around for some other reason. "The past is already written," the Raven said. "The ink is already dry."

But now it looks lượt thích this is false. Indeed, in interviews after that episode, Isaac Hempstead Wright — the actor who plays Bran — suggested that Bran really does possess the power to lớn change events in the past.

"It"s enough of a utility khổng lồ just be able to look back in time and allow that to inform your decisions in the future, but the fact that you might be able to lớn change time? It"s massive. It"s unprecedented," Hempstead Wright told the Hollywood Reporter. "For Bran, it presents a humongous kind of challenge, because we all know from Doctor Who that if you start messing with time, things go wrong. I think the temptation now is definitely there."

Now it seems clear that Hempstead Wright wasn"t speaking in hypotheticals. Bran"s Greenseer power doesn"t just give him power to lớn watch things. It looks lượt thích he can actually affect events in the past.

It"s possible, however, that the Three-Eyed Raven was still technically right. Bran might have the power lớn affect the past, but only in a way that leads khổng lồ outcomes we already see in the present. Hodor was only capable of saying "Hodor" before the events of this episode.

That would mean that Bran couldn"t go back in time and prevent Ned Stark from being executed. But he could have played some role in the sequence of events that ended with Ned"s execution. Remember, Bran is invisible to lớn the people in the past unless he tries khổng lồ make himself known, which means that Bran could have been secretly manipulating everything that we"ve seen on the show so far.

In other words, anything that"s happened so far could theoretically be Bran"s fault.

This suggests some crazy fan hâm mộ theories could be true

Is this once-little guy responsible for literally everything? (HBO0 If Bran really can reach out and affect things he sees with his Greensight, then the implications for world of the show are enormous.

Fans of the books và the show have long suspected that Bran"s Greensight gave him the power lớn affect the past, và so have developed a lot of theories about Bran"s secretly huge role in the narrative.

One theory, from redditor NegativeKarmaSniifer, is that Bran is responsible for the war that kicked off the whole thing. Remember, the reason that Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark rebelled against King Aerys Targaryen way back in the day is that Aerys burned Ned"s father và brother, Rickard and Bran Stark, to lớn death. Aerys had a habit of doing this; he was called the "Mad King," & obsessively said, "Burn them all," near the end of his life. His killing of the Starks kicked off the rebellion, putting Robert on the throne và ultimately culminating in the events of the past six seasons.

NegativeKarmaSniifer suggests that Aerys"s madness came from Bran attempting to tương tác him in the past and warn him away from his path. Perhaps tương tác with the future drives people insane, or maybe Bran was attempting lớn warn him about the trắng Walkers. But either way, the theory is that Bran caused everything that"s happened by trying lớn prevent it.
