First and foremost, if you do not want to (potentially) be spoiled for the last two episodes of Game of Thrones stop reading. Right now. Everything beyond this point will delve deep into spoiler territory and will pick up where our previous post left off.

There are many reasons why this leak making the rounds on Twitter seems quite unbelievable, but let’s delve into it first. People are wicked pissed over what occurs in Episode 4 and are spoiling others en masse out of retribution just to be assholes (pardon my language, but it’s the truth.) They simply don’t care anymore. They think last week “subverted” expectations for shock value, they believe this week does the same, and they don’t care about anyone else’s enjoyment of the show. They are out for sheer vengeance.

Here are the spoilers, and then we will counter with what the infamous leaker Frikidoctor has to say about them, who has an impeccable track record when it comes to Game of Thrones spoilers for the last several seasons.

  • Jaime betrays the North
  • Dany and her army capture Jaime.
  • Sansa reveals Jon’s lineage to Tyrion, and Tyrion in turn tells Varys.
  • Varys betrays Dany because he thinks Jon would be a better leader.
  • Dany has Varys executed for his betrayal.
  • Dany attacks King’s Landing and it’s a one-sided hell, becoming, in all intents and purposes, a “Mad Queen.”
  • Tyrion begs Dany to show mercy. Dany refuses.
  • Tyrion frees Jaime and tells him to get Cersei out of the city.
  • Drogon burns Euron’s fleet. King’s Landing is destroyed.
  • Clegane Bowl happens. Both brothers die.
  • Jaime kills Euron but is mortally wounded in the process.
  • Jaime makes it to Cersei and they die together.
  • Tyrion tries to convince Jon that because of his lineage his family will never be safe, as he is a threat to Dany’s rule.
  • Jon tries to reason with Dany, but she justifies her actions.
  • Jon pledges himself to her (again) but then stabs Danaerys.
  • A council decides on who should be the next King, Tyrion gives a speech, and they chose Bran (!?).
  • In the epilogue, Jon takes the black for being the Queen Slayer, Arya leaves, Sansa rules the North, and Bran oversees his council of Tyrion, Bronn, Davos, and Sam.

Now there are several things in these spoilers that make no sense. Jaime betrays the North to go back to Cersei? There’s no way in hell that’s happening. Jaime has no reason to go back to Cersei and betray the North, especially as Cersei was on the verge of having him killed and he has just consummated his relationship with Brienne. Betraying the North would be betraying Brienne, and Jaime has finally shown himself to be a man of honor again. This would totally destroy his character arc.

Jon taking the black makes no sense. There is no Night’s Watch, no Wall. And I couldn’t see Dany and Jon’s relationship going this route. It betrays both their characters.

Bran becoming King is nonsensical, considering he’s no longer Brandon Stark; he’s disconnected from the world. Should Westeros have a king who is completely cut off from everything? No. And Bronn being on his small council is laughable.

Frikidoctor did a response video on this, which was summarized on r/freefolk. Friki stands by his theory that ultimately Tyrion will betray everyone and will be executed at the end of the season by Jon, and that the Seven Kingdoms will be ruled by a council rather than a singular leader.

Episode Six is allegedly still in post-production according to Friki, so any spoilers about the ending cannot be correct with any degree of certainty. Nothing is written in stone and they filmed multiple endings.

Friki is confident that Dany doesn’t die mad and alone, but he does not believe that she rules. He also believes that Jaime being a traitor is linked to Tyrion’s treason (it was leaked a while ago that he lights King’s Landing with wildfire.) So there may be a one-two punch there.

Now sum things up:

“He’s quite salty about the whole NK thing truly but seems optimistic about Tyrion being the traitor and Dany and Jon not dying but he also repeated several times that now “no one knows” “the writers can do anything”. He’s confident the writers will shoehorn more twists but they’ll no [sic] go that far (Jon killing Dany) cause that will divide the fandom even more than as it is now -which he clarified it’s clearly very divided.”

There we have it. Whether or not any of these leaks/spoilers are to believed are anyone’s guess, but Frikidoctor has the best track record when it comes to Game of Thrones spoilers, so I trust his judgment more than anyone at this point, as should you. This will, at the very least, be a very interesting ride…
