D.B. Weiss and David Benioff created a video for Tuesday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and explained what they were sorry about.
"Not about killing Hodor — we kill a lot of main characters," Benioff said of the character's demise before the camera panned to them sitting on a couch full of cash.
"We are sorry for all the idiots who will be shouting 'Hodor' every time you go through a door," he added, alluding to the origins of the name (“Hold the door”), which was explained in Sunday's show.
His comments were followed by a video of people who screamed "Hodor" as they entered an elevator.
"We should have seen that coming," Weiss said. "Again, so, so sorry. People are the worst."
It was a really clever way to make fans laugh after saying goodbye to a beloved character.
