If you watch HBO’s Game of Thrones — and recent statistics suggest that an awful lot of you guys do, often illegally — you know that any character can die at any time. Oh, you like that one main guy and his nice family? Boom. Now his throat’s slit and they all got stabbed to death. Deal with it. Learn to love these 25 new characters who will soon be ruthlessly murdered.
True fans of the show know that the very best character just keeps on keeping on, though. He’ll never, ever die. I’m referring to Hodor, of course, the lumbering beast of a man who protects the little Stark boys and only knows how to say one word, for some reason that’s never really explained.
Some clever Pinterest user (yes, such a thing exists) put together this handy Hodor flowchart. Use it the next time you ask yourself “what would Hodor do?”
