The relentless stalking of HBO servers and unwavering determination of fans in search of what’s going to happen next meant Game of Thrones Season 7 finally experienced its first few breaches in security recently.
Hackers claimed to have obtained 1.5 Terrabytes of information from the channel’s computers while HBO’s distribution partner Star India also took the responsibility for the leak of the fourth episode Spoils of War last week.
And courtesy of all these leaks, hacks and fandom, we also know what’s going to happen in the next episode Eastwatch that will be aired in India on Monday, August 14.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. PLEASE CLOSE THIS PAGE OR ENJOY SOME OTHER GOOD READING HERE. DON’T COMPLAIN THAT WE DIDN’T WARN YOU.
The fourth episode ends with Daenerys Targaryan ambushing the Lannister armies and Jamie Lannister being pushed into a lake by Bronn to escape Drogon’s cannon of fire. The question on everyone’s mind is whether Jamie manages to escape or not?
Yes, he very much does and also reaches King’s Landing safely; only to find out that Cersie is pregnant, again.
Jamie also has a secret meeting with Tyrion, who is smuggled into KL by Ser Davos. Tyrion tries to convince Jamie to surrender to Dany while Davos will find Gendry. Tyrion, Davos and Gendry will leave by boat for Dragonstone.
At Dragonstone, Jon receives a raven from Winterfell, informing him about Arya and Bran’s arrival. Soon thereafter, he welcomes Dany on her successful return from battle and even pets Drogon, who, to his mother’s surprise, let’s The King of the North do it.
Meanwhile, Ser Jorah, now cured of his Greyscale, also reaches Dragonstone as Dany opens her doors for him.
At the Citadel, Sam, with the help of Gilly, discovers the record of the annulment of Rhaegar’s first marriage and the action of the second in the journals of a Maester who kept meticulous records. They then decide to leave Old Town for Winterfell with Little Sam.
Winterfell will have Littlefinger try to force the Stark sisters into a confrontation, rather successfully. But it’s looking ominous for Baelish is ultimately a mortal in this song of ice and fire.
The episode will end with Jon, Davos, Jorah and Gendry learn of Bran’s visions and leave by boat towards Eastwatch-on-the-Sea to capture a wight in order to prove the danger that is coming from the North of the Wall.
