Possible Game of Thrones episodes 5 and 6 plot details leak online, reveal major deaths, shocking twists, champion of Iron Throne
Detailed plot outlines for the upcoming final two episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones have reportedly been leaked on Reddit. The post also contained an outline of episode four, and was shared a week before it was first aired. What adds to the post’s credibility is that it nailed specific plot details from the fourth episode, such as (SPOILER ALERT) Missandei’s beheading and the death of Rhaegal at the hands of Euron Greyjoy.
The posts have been shared on Game of Thrones subreddits such as A Song of Ice and Fire, and Free Folk, and reveal everything from notable deaths, major plot twists, and the possible champion of the entire ordeal.
Game of Thrones’ final season has been plagued by multiple leaks. The first episode was released early on DirectTV, episode two was released early on Amazon Prime Video in Germany and short clips from the fourth episode were also leaked on social media before the episode was screened.

The production went to great lengths to protect the plot from being leaked; they shot in closed environments, had stringent anti-piracy methods on set and, like Marvel, shot multiple versions of important scenes. “I think they’re filming a bunch of stuff and they’re not telling us,” actor Emilia Clarke told the Hollywood Reporter previously. There’s lots of different endings that could happen; I think we’re doing all of them and we aren’t being told which is actually what’s going to happen.”
Sophie Turner said that a ‘drone killer’ had been deployed on set. “If a drone flies above sets, there’s a thing that can kill the drones, which is really cool. It creates a field around it and the drones just drop. It’s very X-Men,” she said at an event.
Scripts for the final season reportedly vanish after scenes have been shot. Said Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, “They’re very very strict. It’s reached a crazy level this year. We actually get the scripts, and then when we’ve shot the scene — and we only have it digitally — and then when you’ve done the scene, it just vanishes. It’s like Mission: Impossible. ‘This will self-destruct.”
Keeping all this in mind, it begs the question how the details were even accessed. While some suggest that this is based on first hand set reports, others seem to think someone with limited access to filming locations has been leaking the details.
Game of Thrones will return for its penultimate episode on Monday, with the series finale airing on May 20.
