In "Home", episode 2 of season 6,
Hodor is shown as a village boy named Wyllis who can speak.
Some of my friends online have been toying with the idea that:
Hodor was actually a Warg. And based on Wyllis's affectionate look at young Lyanna it may be possible that he was in love with her.
So possibly he would have been warging into her horse so that he can be with her. And he stayed there too long and began to forget his human self.
So when Rhaegar kidnapped Lyanna; Hodor warged into that horse and was subsequently killed. As a result he is that way and can speak only "Hodor", his fear of lightining, carrying bran on his back saddle and other horse like qualities.
Now we know GRRMs style of leaving subtle hints in place.
- Has there been any hints dropped about this in the books? Is this possible?
- What other stories are there where a warg goes into an animal and that animal has been killed?
