For weeks, everyone in my office has been dodging any and every news article pertaining to season eight of Game of Thrones.
"Can you write this story? I can't click on the link, I'm scared it'll spoil the upcoming episode," I've been told by my colleagues multiple times.
Alas, I find myself here, writing about this inconceivable spoiler pertaining to a battle I've never even heard of. You see, I appear to be one of the only people on this planet who hasn't watched an episode of the HBO series. And as often as I'm told I'd enjoy it, incest, flying dragons and weird medieval zombies with strange looking eyes don't really tickle my fancy.
Bear with me though, I've done my research.
According to The Sun, a minute-long preview for the last two episodes of the final season has allegedly been leaked. Although the scene— which pertains to the battle at King's Landing where a character allegedly dies— has since been pulled from Twitter, die-hard fans who clicked on the clip now know how it all ends.
Side note: why can't people in my office be like those heroes? It'd save me so much time.
Anyway, I digress. Naturally, viewers who witnessed the footage have kicked up a stink, with many taking to Twitter to annihilate the "asshole" who somehow got his hands on the clip and leaked it. To be fair, it's a pretty dog move, especially since everyone has been teasing this groundbreaking ending for over a year.
Take a look at people's reactions below!
WARNING: YOU CAN READ THE TWEET BUT DO NOT CLICK ON IT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW HOW IT ENDS.
Although the nasty tweets are still rolling in, according to Emilia Clarke— who plays Daenerys Taergaryn—everyone needs to relax. Knowing some idiot would try and ruin the show, the directors filmed multiple endings.
"There's lots of different endings that could happen," she said. "I think we're doing all of them and we aren't being told which is actually what's going to happen."
The moral of this story? Don't believe everything you read, folks. After all, it's common knowledge Jon Snow dies again.
Kidding, I don't even know who that is!
