As we all know by now, HBO has been the favourite target of hackers since Game of Thrones season 7 kicked off. With the scripts of episodes being leaked online, the episodes themselves followed closely behind. One of the most popular leaks that happened was of episode 4, ‘The Spoils of War’. The much anticipated episode was leaked by a source within the company that handled the data for Star India and four people were arrested following the incident. This leak might have been a huge deal for HBO but the reason it occurred is something that’ll make you laugh out loud. Prepare to be astounded.
Turns out that an IT professional called Alok Sharma (one of the arrested people), had actually sent the episode to his girlfriend, which is where it got leaked and got uploaded online. An Indian Express official revealed, “Initially, there were suspicions that one of the accused had accessed the episode as his girlfriend wanted to see it. The girlfriend had then passed it onto others, one of whom uploaded it online.”
Another official said that they’re still investigating the situation, “The investigation is still in progress. However, so far, it appears that they had leaked it for self-consumption. We are now trying to find out who uploaded it online.”
Reports have suggested that Alok shared the episode with the other three people who were arrested, but they’re still trying to find out who uploaded the episode online.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Even though the year 2020 has been full of tragedies and losses, there is some good news. Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are getting ready to welcome their first child.
The couple officially announced it back in September this year. It seems like they are getting ready to welcome the new family member. They were spotted on Thursday in England while loading some stuff into their Land Rover Defender.
Leslie stood to the side with the couple’s sweet dog. Kit did the heavy lifting, placing carrier bags and black bags into the back of the car.
Rose sported a casual outfit and a stylish hat. She looked amazing with her baby bump on view. She held the pair’s pet Whippet’s lead in one hand and handed bags to Kit with the other.
Rose first showed off her baby bump earlier this year in stunning photos for Make Magazine. She explained that the pair of them have moved home to England ahead of having their baby.
“What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup,” she said. “It’s a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It’s so peaceful.”
Kit and Rose are setting some serious relationship goals. Shower the cute family with your best wishes in the comments below!
Failures are the stepping stones to success. Game of Thrones became the huge and thriving franchise it is today after repeated efforts of the cast and crew despite facing huge setbacks. The popular TV show hit a major roadblock at the beginning of its filming. The original pilot episode of the series turned out to be a $10 million disaster and had to be re-filmed with a lot of changes. One of those changes also removed George R.R. Martin’s cameo scene.
Martin was supposed to appear as a Pentoshi magister at Khal Drogo and Daenerys’ wedding scene. He shared a picture of him in costume, along with co-star Ian McNeice. McNeice is dressed as Illyrio Mopatis, another magister of Pentos. They were shooting in Morocco.
Here’s another peek at the past, and the original pilot for GoT. We shot the wedding of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo in Morocco. Ian McNeice played Illyrio Mopatis, and I played one of the wedding guests, presumably another magister. #TBT https://t.co/2BiGflKIIO pic.twitter.com/ItkUw75uvV

The Game of Thrones writer shared the picture on his Twitter and personal website, Not a Blog. Fans loved the snap, some even described them as medieval Santas.
More can be found out about the show’s unaired pilot in Entertainment Weekly editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon. The book contains detailed information about various interviews with the show’s cast and crew. It delves into the secret behind-the-scene mysteries and brings them to the limelight.
Though the original pilot was absolutely bonkers and had to be re-shot, it lost a few fun elements. Like George R.R. Martin’s cameo, and even Ian McNeice was replaced. What do you think about the unaired pilot? Tell us in the comments below!
Music has often been described as the language of the soul. Every person has a specific taste in music, and there’s that one singer whose songs get close to your heart. They speak directly to your soul. Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has often confessed to being a big-time Eminem fan. She never feels shy to express her admiration for the revered rapper.
Eminem, who is often described as the greatest rap artist of the current generation, acknowledged Sophie’s love for his music on his Twitter account. Turner had earlier posted a pic wearing an ‘8 Mile‘ T-shirt on Instagram. Eminem Tweeted the post on his Twitter account.

Turner, who was recently spotted with her cute little family in public, has often openly shown her love for the acclaimed artist. A couple of years ago, Sophie Turner appeared on James Corden’s show where she revealed she’s a big Eminem fan. She also rapped The Real Slim Shady. “I’m a huge fan of both, M&M’s and the rapper Eminem. I spit pure fire. My favourite is ‘The Real Slim Shady’,” said Sophie Turner before rapping the famous Eminem song.
Looking at Sophie’s talent, we might see her in a rap video in future. Do you like Sophie’s style? Let us know in the comments below!
