It’s no secret that the Game of Thrones theories are on the minds of fans all the time. And, with the cliffhanger that the last episode left, people couldn’t be more excited to know what would happen next. However, in a shocking turn of events, the fourth episode was leaked two days before its official release date. While it is a big let down for HBO, a lot of fans rejoiced as they would be able to see the events that unfold next in the series. But, at the same time, others are sad that they would have to hear more spoilers until they watch the official episode.
This is not the first time hackers had a go at the Game of Thrones. Remember what happened last year when four episodes were leaked way ahead of their release date? Something similar happened this time. According to SmartPix, “the episode 4 “The Spoils of War” went live on the Star India official website but was taken down quickly, but some users instantly downloaded the episode and posted it on Reddit.” Not only is it open to public access, the episode is spreading on the Internet like wildfire. The video also has a “Star India Pvt Ltd” watermark. Following the big leak of the fourth episode from season seven, there have been threats of more leaks in the future.
The shocking leak has sent Netizens into a fit, and social media networking websites have been buzzing with funny jokes and sad comments. Twitterati is confused whether to be happy or sad, and has blown up the social media interface with mixed reactions.
