The Game of Thrones bosses are taking it upon themselves to apologize for Sunday’s heartbreaking episode, but not for what you’d think.
Creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss appeared on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! to offer “a heartfelt apology” to the passionate fans of the HBO series, who are likely still traumatized over the tragic death of beloved character Hodor.
“We’d like to apologize for Sunday’s episode,” Weiss opened the apology.
“Not for killing Hodor -- we kill a lot of main characters,” Benioff continued, before Weiss reminded everyone that they’ve killed off exactly 739 characters over the course of six seasons.
“We’re sorry for all the idiots who, from now on will be shouting ‘Hodor!’ every time you go through a door,” Benioff said, referencing the act in which Hodor perished -- holding a door to keep a group of Wights away.
“We forgot how annoying people can be, that’s our bad,” conceded Weiss, surrounded by mountains of money on the couch. But, things take a violent and surprising turn! Watch the video below to find out what happens next.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
