Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6 Preview

Major plot points from the final two episodes of Game of Thrones have allegedly leaked online.

**Spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode four “The Last of the Starks” below**

Multiple publications, including Deadspin’s The Concourse, have reported that details from episodes five and six of season eight may have appeared online.

Before the release of episode four, a Reddit account posted multiple alleged plot points from the three remaining episodes.

The summary of episode four, titled “The Last of the Starks”, proved correct. The account correctly predicted Rhaegal the dragon would be shot down by Euron Greyjoy, Sansa would tell Tyrion about Jon Snow’s true parents, and that Missandei would be executed by The Mountain.

Whether the Reddit account’s claims regarding the fourth and fifth episodes are correct has yet to be verified. Details posted by the account have since appeared on social media, with some fans reporting those people sharing the apparent spoilers.

The eighth season of Game of Thrones has suffered multiple leaks. A video of a major scene from episode four, revealing the death of Rhaegal, appeared on social media just hours before airing. Meanwhile, the season premiere accidentally aired four hours early on DirecTV, the second episode leaked before being broadcast, and images from episode three were posted early online.

Episode five airs in the US on HBO at 2am BST. Sky Atlantic will simulcast the episode in the UK. You will also be able to stream each episode via NOW TV.
