The second episode of Game of Thrones season eight has leaked online hours before broadcast.
The next instalment of the HBO show’s final season will air simultaneously in the UK – on Sky Atlantic – and the US from 2am GMT, but eager fans wanting to have the surprises spoiled found they could do so thanks to Amazon Prime in Germany.
Subscribers catching up with the first outing, titled “Winterfell”, couldn’t believe their luck when the second episode began airing immediately after.
Tonight’s episode will focus on Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) after his return to Winterfell. Considering his questionable actions in the past, including pushing Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) from a window and killing Daenerys’ father, it’s certain he won’t receive the nicest welcome.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that George RR Martin – the author of the show’s source material – almost featured an incestuous relationship that’s impossible to comprehend.
