If HBO thought it was bad when several episodes of “Game of Thrones” were leaked onto torrenting sites before they aired, just imagine the angst now that the entire plot of the upcoming seventh season has apparently been leaked on Reddit.
About three weeks ago, a Reddit user with the handle “awayforthelads” claimed to “leak” plot details of the upcoming season (author George R. R. Martin has yet to even write the books upon which the season would be based had he gotten around to writing them), and the plot points were so outlandish that the supposed leak was ignored as a prank.
However, when some of the things mentioned in the Reddit posts appeared to be borne out in paparazzi photos from the set, new attention was suddenly paid to the information – even though the Redditor who posted the info had deleted his account.
Screengrabs of his posts remain, though, with Deadspin thoughtfully compiling all the information — and it’s pretty wild.
While only the cast, crew and HBO execs know for certain, just in case this info does prove to be the real deal and you don’t want to spoil the entire season, then you’d be well advised to stop reading now.
According to Deadspin, here’s what we may or may not be seeing when “Game of Thrones” debuts in summer 2017:
“Jon and Daenerys spend much of the season together at Dragonstone, and in the finale they have sex while the Wall crumbles; Arya and Sansa are reunited, and Arya executes Littlefinger at Sansa’s command; Euron and Cersei form a doomed alliance against the Daenerys/Jon coalition; Samwell, Gilly, and Bran put together that Jon Snow is actually the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and the trueborn son of Rhaegar Targaryen (this is complicated and involves an annulment and Jon being named Aegon, same as his half-brother).”
In addition: “Jon and a host of others go north of the Wall to capture a wight to prove the nature of the looming threat to Westerosi rulers; and the Night King kills and possesses Viserion, turns him into an ice dragon, and uses him to burn down the Wall. It’s unclear whether or not Euron resurrects that horrifying Cthulu monster that our old friend Poor Quentyn predicted he would, but in all these plot events are both pretty insane and actually in line with where the show seemed to be headed after Cersei nuked King’s Landing and Daenerys set sail for Westeros.”
Is it true? Who knows? In any case — winter is coming!
