The next episode of “Game of Thrones” has been leaked online. The episode was accidentally uploaded by a third-party vendor to HBO Nordic and HBO Espana, before it got removed. But it has leaked all over the internet.
The next episode of Game Thrones Season 7 is “Death is the Enemy” and it hit the web five days before it was supposed to be broadcast.
The episode spread across Reddit and torrent websites, I have reviewed the video and it does appear to the latest episode. The episode is the second search result for “Game of Thrones” on Pirate Bay. Streaming or downloading the episode is of course against U.S. law, so don’t do it.
This is the second time that a recent episode of Game of Thrones has been leaked before it was aired. Star India, one of HBO’s international distributors, was responsive for leaking Episode 4 “The Spoils of War.”
HBO Europe confirmed to Buzzfeed that the HBO Nordic and HBO Espana leaked the episode, writing, “We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms. The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized. This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the US.”
So just a warning, when you’re on the internet today, beware of possible spoilers.
And here are some. There were three major deaths in the show this week, As Daenerys rescued the White Walker expedition from an army of dead, the Night King grabbed an icy spear and hurled it at one of her dragons, striking it in the neck and downing it.
It wasn’t made clear which dragon died (Drogon, Rhaegal or Viserion), but we can safely say it was Viserion, identifiable by his lighter body and red wings.
Drogon and Rhaegal screamed as their brother slid under the ice, Dany forced to watch her child die in front of her.
The end of the episode suggested that Viserion will return as a wight.
The other deaths this week were Thoros of Myr and Benjen Stark.
Seven men were never going to make it back alive from that mission and Thoros of Myr froze to death not long after sustaining injuries from the wight bear the group encountered. Benjen Stark meanwhile made a n unexpected return, saving Jon from marauding wights and putting him on a horse before being engulfed by wights himself. We are unsure if he’s dead or a wight.
