Game of Thrones Season 6 – Mike Jordan, vice president, audio/video, SnapAV: Season 6, Episode 5 Choosing episode 5 “The Door” from season six, Jordan says the last few minutes provides the origins of the character Hodor’s name. Emphasizing how music with video can combine to create emotion, the last few minutes delivers action, suspense, terror and ultimately heartbreak. Describing the action, Jordan notes the army of the dead were decimating the Children of the Forest who were fighting to give Bran, Meera and Hodor time to escape. “Explosions, screams and terror fade to a heartbreaking score as Hodor sacrifices himself for the others by holding the door. The action has built to a crescendo and slowly fades to sorry as we mourn Hodor.”
