Months after his devastating departure from Game of Thrones, Hodor is still in our hearts and holding our doors.

His death in the middle of season 6 left a mark in a way we haven’t seen since the Red Wedding. We mourned him online, turned him into a meme, and in true capitalistic form, created a niche market of self-fulfilling prophecy products: Hodor door stoppers to “hold the door” for us.

Hodor actor and DJ Kristian Nairn discovered that, hilariously, even his own mother owns a Hodor door stopper during a recent visit to his parents’ home.

Holding that door until the very end.
