'Game Of Thrones' producers apologise about Hodor

Weiss: "We'd like to apologize for Sunday's episode".

Did you suddenly break down today, at the elevator, when somebody asked you to "Hold the door?".

Take a look in the player above or below and let us know what you think here or on Twitter.

"Hold the door!" Tears were shed after "Game of Thrones" season 6 episode 5 paraded White Walkers and gut-wrenching visions last Sunday. Jimmy Kimmel Live offered the producers a chance to apologize for the death of Hodor and the result is hilarious.

"We forgot how annoying people can be", Weiss added.

The clip goes on to depict people yelling, "Hodor!" instead of "Hold the door", in a shallow attempt to be clever. The episode brought over a few explanations that were long overdue, including the mystery behind Hodor's name.

As you know, the closing moments of "The Door" saw our hero, Hodor, holding the door of the weirwood tree shut so Bran and Meera could escape.

WARNING - spoiler alert for season six episode five below. "He may come back as a White Walker, maybe he got away", the actor teased.

"Only George R.R. Martin or David and Dan could have come up with this".

In an interview with makingofgameofthrones.com, Nairn summed up his role as Hodor by saying "he is a better man, he's not the most intelligent guy, but he can sense when things are important". Stannis Baratheon, an iron throne hopeful at the time, burned his daughter alive on a pyre as an offering to the Lord of Light (you can thank Melisandre for that) to strengthen his army.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.

With two seasons left in Game of Thrones, this seems like a suspiciously small number of holy shit moments.

To that, we say, "Hodor".
