The revelation regarding Hodor (Christian Nairn), which was shown in the fifth episode of Game of Thrones season 6, The Door, is not the only stunning plot twist shared by George R.R. Martin with HBO showrunners. Two years ago in Santa Fe, when "A Song of Ice and Fire" author and executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss discussed the future storylines of the project, Martin provided a rough draft of the completion of his literary saga. Benioff and Weiss admitted that in the course of their discussion three "nightmarish moments" were voiced. Their words are quoted by Entertainment Weekly.
The first point concerned Stannis Baratheon, who sacrificed his daughter Shiren in the fifth season. The hero of the second moment was Hodor and his story, narrated in the fifth episode of the sixth season. Martin has known the truth about Hodor's name ever since the character was introduced in the first Game of Thrones novel.
As for the third point, Benioff says, "it will happen at the very end."
In the history of the series, the sixth season became the first in which events are ahead of the literary source. However, the showrunners argue that while some points in the show and in the books will overlap, much of what happens on the show will be different from the literary source.
