The fifth episode of the ongoing sixth season of the fantasy TV show unraveled the mystery of the gentle giant’s impaired conversational skills. The character just had one dialogue in the entire show and that was to say 'Hodor'.
The climax of episode explained the giant’s past and also why he is only able to say his name, which is actually a command - “Hold the door”.
'Game Of Thrones', which is based on novels by George R.R. Martin, and is a dramatic telling of a story entwined with sneaky ploys, nudity and bloodshed in a quest to claim the 'Iron Throne'.
In between all the slaughter and plotting in the show, Nairn emerged from the stables of Winterfell (a fictional town of the series) to make a place in the hearts of the audience as a gentle giant.
