Yes, you are reading it correctly and we aren’t joking about it. The next episode of Game of Thrones season 7, which is going to be the penultimate episode of season 7 has been leaked online and no, the hackers haven’t played any role in leaking the episode. The episode got leaked because HBO Spain happened to air the episode by accident!
According to this Reddit post, the 6th episode was aired by mistake for an hour! Many people have been sharing photos of the upcoming episode and looking at the photos, there’s absolutely no doubt that the episode has been aired and that means it will soon find its way online and there have been many people who have been claiming that they have found some copies of the episode that were around 30 minutes long.
This has been a really bad month for HBO as the 4th episode, The Spoils of War was leaked online after employees of Star India, which has the rights for airing the episodes in India had stolen the episode and leaked it online. HBO had suffered a major hack last month and the surprising part is that the hackers have done less damage than HBO’s own partners.
We are waiting for an official statement from HBO regarding this and we will keep you updated as soon as more information emerges.
