“Game of Thrones” Season 6 premiere is here and the only person who deserved a sneak preview is President Barack Obama, or so we thought. The first episode of the season was leaked online hours before the official premiere. It was quickly taken down but not before stills from the leaks were taken and published online.
According to The Mirror, HBO already prevented press previews of the season premiere and only holding one screening of the episode to prevent a premature release. Despite all the precautions, some people got a sneak peek before the series premiered on HBO.
The leak was available for a short period on a Canadian streaming site before it was abruptly taken down. The leaked episode was in full HD glory with French subtitles. Although the episode was swiftly taken off the net some people had already taken snapshots and posted them on Reddit and Imgur.
The Telegraph graciously enumerated the spoilers from the leaked episode on its website. It revealed that “spoiled” plot points were already known due to trailers and teasers released by the actors and HBO themselves.
So if you really can’t wait for “Game of Thrones” season six to come out and much rather spoil yourself of the first episode please do continue.
First, the episode will show a storyline telling how Sansa and Theon/Reek escape Winterfell and pursued by Ramsay’s hounds. They wade across an icy river in an attempt to throw off their scent. Also, Brienne will also come to the rescue despite earlier abandoning Sansa’s rescue to kill Stannis Baratheon.
Second, the Martells of Dorne have run out of luck due to Oberyn’s paramour poisoning Myrcella as she and her father Jaime were en route to King’s Landing. This has sent the already half-crazed Cersei into a thirst for Martell blood.
Third, Waif, a member of the Faceless Men of Braavos is shown beating a blinded Arya Stark, who is seen begging in the streets. Waif forces her to fight despite her obvious handicap.
Fourth, Daenerys is captured by Khal Moro’s khalasar as seen in season five. It shows the khal intent on bringing her to Vaes Dothrak, which has not been seen since the first season.
Fifth, Melisandre’s true powers, and age are revealed. The episode is titled “The Red Woman” which can only refer to her.
Lastly, there are no details about Jon Snow returning from the dead, which is certainly a bummer for everyone who wanted to know the bastard’s fate.
That’s all that was revealed by the Game of Thrones episode leak. This might not mean much considering the show premieres in mere hours. Get set for our return to Westeros and all the sex and violence that go with it.
