It took six seasons, but Game of Thrones finally, finally, finally got around to revealing the secret origin of Hodor. Actually, "The Door" dove deep into the mythology of A Song of Ice and Fire — which we discuss in-depth on this week's episode of the EW Game of Thrones podcast. We also discuss about the burgeoning Brienne-Tormund maybe-romance — which Gwendoline Christie also has thoughts about — and try to figure out just what Littlefinger's plan is now. Lastly, we get political, analyzing Euron Greyjoy's bold policy of Building Kamillion Ships.
