(Spoiler alert: Do not keep reading if you did not see this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones”)

“Game of Thrones” fans are still reeling from the incredibly emotional ending of Sunday’s episode, and the co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss want you to know that they’re sorry.

The two appeared in a taped sketch on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” in which they apologized for the death of gentle giant Hodor (Kristian Nairn).

They said they were sorry for the episode, but not for killing Hodor, as main characters die all the time on the show. Instead, they are sorry now that every time a “Game of Thrones” fan needs someone to hold a door for them, they are going to say “Hodor!”

In the episode, Bran again encounters the young Hodor during a vision of the past. When he wargs into Hodor in the past, it sends Hodor into convulsions and he can hear Meera screaming “Hold the door,” and begins shouting it himself. People hear it as “Hodor.”

“We forgot how annoying people can be,” Weiss said. “That’s our bad.”

“We should have seen this coming,” Benioff chimed in.

“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m./8c on HBO.
