Hodor May Have Just Accidentally Revealed A Huge 'Game Of Thrones' Plot Twist

Hodor May Have Just Accidentally Revealed A Huge 'Game Of Thrones' Plot Twist

WARNING: Spoilers (like winter) are coming

Even if you're up to date on the latest Game of Thrones episode, this article could potentially reveal huge upcoming plot points in the show, so if you don't want anything spoiling then DO NOT READ AHEAD.

Instead, maybe enjoy this article about The Time Barry From Eastenders Sang At The World Bowls Championship, or How Legalising Cannabis Could Be Great For The Economy instead?

What I'm saying is: get the hell off this page right now because spoilers (like winter) could be coming.


Since exiting the show in the last season, Kristian Nairns - the actor who portrayed Hodor in Game of Thrones - has been popping up in ad breaks to promote KFC.

He's also made a few appearances on Sky Atlantic's Thronecast, and in the latest episode of the GOT chat show, he could have potentially released a spoiler about the future of the show, which he has now claimed was a slip of the tongue.

Here's exactly what he said:

Whilst speaking to the show's host, Sue Perkins, and guests Grace Dent and Simon Neil, Kristian said that she could be "going mad, like her father the Mad King."

Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion are all presumed to be Lannisters; however the Mad King was a Targaryen, so if true it would have huge implications for the show.

Here's how Twitter reacted:

However, given that it wouldn't make much sense in the context of the current story arc, most people have dismissed it as a slip of a tongue:

The theory has been put about before, with it previously having been hinted that the Lannisters' mother Joanna was once a lover of the Mad King.

But if Cersei and Jaime do turn out to be the children of the Mad King, then it would be a huge jumping of the shark for the show, so hopefully it's not true.
