WARNING: This article contains potential spoilers from season 7 of Game of Thrones
For all you spoiler-heads out there who don’t mind ruining an entire season of Game of Thrones months before it even airs, you’ll love this one.
A brave Redditor named awayforthelads dumped what appears to be the entire plot of Season 7 onto the Freefolk subreddit. The subreddit has a long history of being the go-to place for Thrones leaks and last season was incredibly reliable at thoroughly spoiling almost every detail of Season 6.
As further proof of authenticity, awayforthelads has deleted his account, presumably to evade the wrath of HBO.
And actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Daenerys Targaryen’s beautiful handmaiden Missandei, may have confirmed the authenticity of the leak on Twitter or could just be referring to leaked photos from the set.
Another Redditor faithfully compiled awayforthelads’ leaks and attempted to put them in chronological order. S/he also added annotations of leaks from the set which seemed to add evidence to the leaks’ authenticity.
Here are the plot details in approximate order below (with set leaks as evidence) compiled from Reddit:
The White Walkers are marching south on the Wall. Bran crosses the Wall back into Westeros and meets with Dolorous Edd the new Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
Sansa and Jon have an argument about what to do with the Northern houses who betrayed them by fighting with the Boltons. Sansa and Lyanna Mormont wants to give their lands to loyal supporters but Jon refuses to hold the Karstark and Umber children responsible. Jon does it his way and basically tells the other to deal with it because he’s not going to rule the North the way it’s always been.
At the end of the episode Danaerys and co. arrive at Dragonstone (Stannis’ old seat and an island near King’s Landing). She goes into the old war room with the table map of Westeros and turns to Tyrion and says “Shall we begin?”
Jon gets a raven from Danaerys telling all the Northern lords to meet her on Dragonstone to parlay. Jon and Davos decide to go to ask for some of the dragonglass stockpiled on Dragonstone.
Sansa is left in charge of Winterfell and leaves Ghost behind too.
Dorne and Highgarden get sacked by the Lannisters early in the season. Jaime confronts Olena Tyrell at Highgaren. She tells Jaime everything about how she and Littlefinger poisoned Joffrey. Jaime allows her to drink poison and kill herself before being captured.
Euron’s Fleet destroy’s Yara Greyjoy’s and takes her prisoner. Theon escapes by jumping overboard and is rescued by other Iron Born.
Euron Greyjoy attacks Dorne as well, killing two Sand Snakes and capturing Ellaria.
It's really disappointing there are people who are determined to ruin Season 7 for everyone… 😒 #spoilsports

Jon and Davos arrive on Dragonstone and meet Tyrion on the beach.
Tyrion brings them to meet Danaerys. Dany demands Jon bend the knee, which he refuses. Jon instead tells her about the White Walker threat but she doesn’t believe him. Davos tries to tell her about Jon’s resurrection, but Jon dismisses it. Tyrion steps in to say Jon’s a good guy and definitely not insane.
Dany respects Jon immediately, although Jon doesn’t return the sentiment.
Jon meets Theon who presumably meets with Theon and promises to spare his life for what he did helping Sansa escape.
Arya encounters her old direwolf Nymeria on the way to Winterfell.
Jorah and Sam meet in Old Town and finds a cure for greyscale.
Bran arrives at Winterfell and Meera returns home to the Neck.
Arya arives at Winterfell
Dany torches a few Westerosi lords with her dragons which include Sam Tarley’s father and brother.
Tyrion dissuades Dany from attacking King’s Landing directly with dragons for fear of killing lots of civilians.
Jaime and Bronn and the Lannister army are ambushed (probably mid season) by Dany/Dothraki/dragons while marching back from Highgarden. They Lannister army is defeated and Jaime is almost killed by dragons, only to be saved by Bronn.
Jon realizes the only way to get Westeros to work together to fight the White Walkers is to get a live specimen of a zombie to show everyone.
Sam leaves Oldtown for Winterfell with Gilly and the baby.
Jorah reunites with Dany at Dragonstone after apparently healing his greyscale in Oldtown, at some point earlier in the season.
Jon receives a raven letting him know that Bran and Arya are at Winterfell.
Jon, Jorah and Gendry (not sure how he gets in the mix) set sail to the Wall. They are looking to capture a white (the White Walker’s mindless zombies) in order to prove to the other lords of Westeros and Dany they exist and to gain support in fighting them.
(Jorah, Gendry and Jon spotted on set leaving Bilbao set on a boat. This is probably the most compelling evidence for the leaks veracity, as they are such an odd pairing of characters to be mentioned so specifically in the leaks.)
Jamie and Bronn secretly meet with Tyrion and Davos. Tyrion tries to persuade Jamie to get Cersei to surrender to Dany. Jamie ignores it.
Jon arrives at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea (the easternmost Night’s Watch castle). Apparently Tormund had the Brotherhood without Banners member locked in the jail. The Bwbs were on a mission from the Lord of Light to fight the White Walkers.
Jon leads a small force which includes Beric, Thoros, Tormund, Jorah and Gendry. The team is attacked by the Night Kings army including a zombie polar bear which kills Thoros.
They get surrounded on a frozen lake, nearly about to be defeated when Dany arrives with her dragons. She flies most of the team back to safety but leaves Jon behind. Apparently the Night’s King is able to kill her dragon Viserion and ressurect it as his own zombie dragon mount.
Jon is almost killed by the encroaching hoards but then Benjen swoops in to save him. He sends the wounded Jon off on his horse before being Benjen is swarmed and presumably killed by the wights.
At some point in the episode Jon promises to Dany to lay down his title as King in the North if Dany helps them against the White Walkers.
Sansa sentences Littlefinger to death, which Arya carries out. Sometime earlier in the season Littlefinger attempted to pit Arya and Sansa against each other by using an old letter Sansa wrote under duress by the Lannisters to Robb Stark. Bran helps Sansa see through Littlefinger’s ploy.
Cersei wakes up in a bed soaked with blood, presumably from a miscarriage. At some point earlier in the season there is a plot thread where Cersei finds out she is pregnant with Jaime’s child.
Sam and Bran somehow figure out Jon’s parentage, that he is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. His real name is “Aegon” and he was legitimized at birth (not a bastard).
Jon and Dany have sex on a boat headed North.
The Wall falls at the end of the episode.. The Night King attacks the wall with zombie Viserion and is able to knock it down.
Dragon Pit Scene (unsure of chronology)
Later in the season there will be a scene at a dragon pit with almost the entire cast of the show. There will be a parlay between Cersei and Dany, allowing them all to meet at said dragon pit.
Jon brings the wight he captured in order to show all the lords of the danger facing Westeros.
Cersei orders the Mountain to kill the wight which he cannot even after cutting it to bits. Jon explains only dragonglass can kill these zombies.
Cersei responds that she will certainly send help to Jon, but later in private she tells Jamie she was lying. She explains she welcomes the coming of the zombie horde so they can take out her enemies. Jamie is disgusted by this and leaves her to ride north.
Update: Fan art is already being created around the leaks.
