'Game of Thrones' season 8 leak: Redditor uploads details about premiere episode and spoiler alerts leave fans enraged
'Game of Thrones' season 8 is set to premiere on April 24 and with just a few weeks left for the premiere, the show is facing trouble with leaks. A Reddit user TheRealFrikiDoctor uploaded a video on YouTube, in which he explains what happens in the premiere episodes in great detail. The video was shared on Reddit, and the details in the video made their way to Twitter resulting in loyal fans coming across spoiler alerts with no tags. HBO did get the video taken down, but the tweets are not something that can be controlled.
Another Reddit user u/Hang_the_dj2, translated the video into text and posted the content on Reddit, which has since been being shared online.
From Jon meeting his brother Bran to Danaerys trying to get friendly with Sansa Stark, the first episode is all about reunions and this has been expanded on by the user.
A Twitter user also posted, "The season 8 premiere of #GameOfThrones leaked already — Do you have any idea how difficult it is to NOT go seek that out? After 2 years of waiting? I'm having convulsions over this internal debate. The right thing to do is wait until the actual premiere date..."

Some fans also find the situation is hilarious since it was just quite recently that HBO had issued statements regarding the steps that are being taken to avoid leakage of episodes this season. One user even posted a meme about it on Reddit.
'Game of Thrones' season 8, the grand finale to a series that has kept fans hooked for almost a decade is a highly anticipated event. This season will consist of only six episodes of which a few of them will be 80 minutes long. The conclusion to the season will also reveal who will finally sit on the Iron Throne.
