Without giving too many spoilers away, book readers are aware of the jumping character narrative nature of the later Song Of Ice And Fire novels.  The fifth season of the hit HBO series Game Of Thrones hasn’t even fully covered the third and fourth books, respectively.  And it was announced today that fan favorite Hodor, the Groot-like giant who only says “Hodor” (played by awesome guy Kristian Nairn) and Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright) will NOT be returning for the fifth season.

“We have a season off and we have a year’s hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books,” Nairn said.  Time went on to say that Narin’s other business, DJing, will be in full swing with the Thrones-themed DJ tour “Rave of Thrones” that Nairn is currently hosting across Australia.

The OTHER thing we know for sure is that the highly debated “nude” scene for Queen Cersei (played by Lena Headey) is indeed going to happen, despite many many protests from the Croatian city the show is filming in.  But really, what would Westeros be without a naked Queen scene in a season?  (Take a drink for boobs!)
