Basically Everything In That Old ‘Game Of Thrones’ Leak Has Come True

Heads up: this article discusses spoilers for Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5.

Two weeks ago, an anonymous Reddit user leaked a trove of alleged Game of Thrones plot details. Their claims were wild, bloody, and confusing, outlining a finale few fans would have predicted. After today’s episode, it also appears the information they leaked is totally accurate.

Let’s back up a bit. On May 1, Redditor /u/throwaway5873421 shared a list of plot points covering damn near everything left in the series: who lives, who dies, and of course, who ends up on the Iron Throne. 

That leak was posted before the global premiere of the series’ fourth episode, The Last Of The Starks, but it accurately foretold two of its key moments: the death of Rhaegal the dragon at the hands of Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk), and the execution of Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) at the orders of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

The latest episode premiered this morning, and it too conformed to many of the predictions laid out by /u/throwaway5873421. Most notably, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) – mad with grief and rage – burned much of King’s Landing to the ground.

As for the victims of the episode, Cersei and the turncoat Jaime Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) died together – as predicted. Euron was killed by Jaime – as predicted. Varys (Conleth Hill) was roasted by Daenerys’ remaining dragon – as predicted. Clegane brothers The Hound (Rory McCann) and The Mountain (Hafþór Björnsson) both died during their long-awaited battle – as predicted.

Only Harry Strickland (Marc Rissman) and Maester Qyburn (Anton Lesser), who both carked it in the episode, avoided a write-up from /u/throwaway5873421. Let’s be honest, though: nobody was holding out for details on the death of a random mercenary or the series’ own Dr. Frankenstein. 

With one episode left, it seems /u/throwaway5873421 acquired some awfully accurate behind-the-scenes information. It is not yet clear how they came across incomplete episodes before their official release, but one thing is obvious: people who have read the full leak, including a description of how the series ends, are absolutely furious.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
