This Game Of Thrones Theory About Hodor Is Genius


Aside from Jon Snow’s kinda-unpredictable return to life, last Sunday’s Game Of Thrones episode had all of us thinking the same thing: “What happened to Hodor?” and also “Aw teenage Hodor was so dang cute”.

I think it’s safe to say we all collectively assumed the only thing Hodor was ever capable of saying was “Hodor”, which we (wrongly) figured was his name.

Turns out, Bran’s lovable mate was actually once a well-spoken and extraordinarily articulate (albeit freakishly large) young man named Wylis.

Redditor piney posed a theory about young Wylis (Hodor) that makes so much sense you’ll be like, “why didn’t I think of that?”

 The “Tower” piney is referring to the Tower of Joy, one of the most significant locations in the most popular GOT theory to date— namely, R + L = J, the TL;DR version of which is: Jon Snow is the illegitimate child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.

But I digress. Other Redditors were quick to build on this theory:

Which especially makes sense when we consider the title of the next episode…
