It seems that HBO has kept the latest episode of Game of Thrones Season 6 on top of the leaks this week. Tonight, Game of Thrones S06E07- ‘The Broken Man’- is airing and even before that it is leaked on the torrent site.
The Pirate Bay has shared a video file named episode 7 but we were not able to open it. It is quite possible the the user who submitted it might have pulled it down or it is available with very few people. The episode is also up for view on some private Reddit communities. However, last week’s episode 6, ‘Blood of my Blood’ was a successful worldwide simulcast.
Till now, the episode 5 ‘The Door’ was leaked 24 hours prior to its official airing. This was entirely the network’s fault. This was the only episode that was leaked this season till today, and now hours before the official air of episode 7 of Game of Thrones Season 6, it is leaked online, as per The Independent.
In 2015, first four episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 were leaked online before the launch. It was reported that the leak was originated from preview copies. To avoid this happening again, HBO has issued screeners to press this year.
However, last month the episode titles for 8, 9 and 10 were revealed, which were quite telling: “No One,” “The Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter.”
In episode 4, it was showed that Ramsay sends a letter to Jon, threatening to kill Rickon if Sansa is not returned. This convinces Jon to gather an army and pledge a war with Bolton to take back Winterfell.
Episode 7 “The Broken Man” would be a follow-up of episode 4, where we would see Jon Snow starts gathering an army for that battle. Rumours suggest that it would be the bloodiest battle and Ramsay would be killing some Jon Snow’s men in the fire during the battle.
The official synopsis for the episode reads, “The High Sparrow eyes another target. Jaime confronts a hero. Arya makes a plan. The North is reminded.”
