'Game of Thrones' Season 8, Episode 6 Leaks: What Happens in the Series Finale?

The series finale for Game of Thrones is almost upon us, signaling the end for our journey to Westeros (until the next set of series starts). Similar to what happened last week, the entire plot for episode 6 of season 8 has leaked online on the freefolk reddit. If we trust the leaker again, we can get a pretty good idea of what to expect on Sunday.

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 6 Spoilers: How To Read The Leaks

Over the past few weeks, reddit user supermachochichiman has been posting comprehensive information on the last few episodes of Game of Thrones . The user nailed exactly what happened in episode five, so it would seem fair to trust them when it comes to the series finale. The user correctly predicted the "Cleganebowl," the fight between the Hound and the zombie Mountain, that fans have been waiting for since the show's beginning.

You can find the full spoiler here on the FreeFolk reddit, named for the wildlings in the North.This leak is the most comprehensive yet, with multiple sources converging to give the best picture of what is going to happen to the characters leftover from last week. Though nothing is confirmed until the show actually airs, it does seem fairly likely that this leak is legitimate.

The moderators of the FreeFolk reddit need to comb through hundreds of fan theories and posts to find the legitimate sources. It's a difficult, non-paying job that requires hours of free time to pull off but can be extremely rewarding. Helping fans gather in a space and discuss what's coming creates a sense of community, even if it's around information HBO would prefer didn't get out.

"Anywhere in the production chain with a human element can be a source for leaked information," Reddit user cgmcnama told Newsweek in Reddit private message exchanges. "There really is no set method and we take whatever information people have."

The last season of Game of Thrones has left some people upset and these spoilers have proven to be the most popular yet. Viewers want to know that their favorite characters are being sent off the proper way, rather in a blaze of fire that lacked a cathartic conclusion. Petitions have started to appear online, asking HBO to reshoot the last season of the show to give Jon, Tyrion and the rest of the Westeros gang a bit more to work with. It's highly unlikely we will see such a resolution, but it shows how hungry the fan base is for something else.
