“Game of Thrones” Season 6 cast member Sam Coleman, who played the role of Young Hodor, has written a song titled “Hold the Door” to honour his character. HBO has also released a new video that shows all the major scenes involving the character over the past few years.

[Spoiler alert]

The song written by Coleman posted on Sound Cloud recounts the life of Hodor, who was just a simple stable boy. The lyrics talk about how the young boy grew up watching Stark boys become men, but was unable to say anything except that one word that became his name.

As a child, Hodor had a vision one day. It was Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) from the future. The event revealed how he would one day sacrifice his life to save Bran and this would be his one simple mission in life. The song by Coleman is from Hodor’s point of view and in the lyrics he says that he would put his life on the line to make sure you (Bran) would not die.

The secret behind Hodor’s name and his mission was revealed in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. He was supposed to hold the door in order to help Bran escape. Towards the end of Coleman’s song, he recreates the death scene of his character, in which he keeps repeating the words “hold the door” and that eventually becomes “Hodor.”

Meanwhile, HBO has released a video that shows some of the best scenes of the character. Hodor doesn’t say much, but over the years fans have come to love him for his loyalty, generosity and most importantly for not having any agenda of his own.

The death of Hodor was perhaps the most shocking scene in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. With four more episodes to go; more deaths and shocking deaths are expected to be featured on the show.
