Land­lord Ed­die leaks GoT Secrets

VIZ - - Game Of Thrones 4 Page Special -

ACACHE of Game of Thrones’s most closely guarded secrets has sen­sa­tion­ally been LEAKED by a West Mid­lands pub land­lord in a dra­matic se­cu­rity breach that has rocked the block­buster HBO fan­tasy show to its foun­da­tions. Plots from the epic se­ries’s hotly an­tic­i­pated eighth and fi­nal sea­son were ap­par­ently left on a pub ta­ble in Tet­ten­hall, Wolver­hamp­ton by the show’s cre­ator, Ge­orge RR Martin.

The­barely leg­i­ble sto­ry­lines, scrib­bled on­the back of a beer­mat, were found by Ed­die Spoiler, man­ager of the Al­bion Pub on the town’s Dave­hill es­tate.


Spoiler, 62, told lo­cal paper the Wrot­tlesby& Smestow­side Ar­gus:“We’d had one of our pop­u­lar strip show, quiz and meat raf­fle nights, and me and big San were clear­ing up the emp­ties in the main bar. It’d been quite busy, so there was a lot of rub­bish left on the ta­bles; crisp bags, an­swer pa­pers and what-have-you.”

“I was just scoop­ing a load into my bin-bag when I no­ticed the names ‘Daen­erys Tar­garyen’ and ‘Tyrion Lan­nis­ter’ scrawled on the back of a beer­mat,” con­tin­ued Mr Spoiler. “That puz­zled me a bit. I knew there’d been no Game of Thrones ques­tions in the quiz, so I read on to see what it was all about.”


He told the paper: “When I re­alised what I had in my hand, my hat flew about a foot in the air off the top of my head. It was the plots for the whole next se­ries of the big­gest show on TV!”

“Sud­denly it all made sense. The fat lit­tle bearded man who had been sat nurs­ing his pint at the ta­ble by the fruity all af­ter­noon must’ve been Ge­orge RR Martin, the au­thor of the Song of Fire and Ice books on which Game of Thrones is based,” said Mr Spoiler.


“In be­tween the top­less floor­show, the meat draw and the quiz, he had clearly been sat there qui­etly think­ing up plots for his top-rated sword and sorcery show.”

Sto­ry­lines for the top-rated se­ries, which fol­lows the for­tunes of the ri­val houses of Lan­nis­ter and Stark in the myth­i­cal realm of Wes­teros, are closely guarded secrets. Game of Thrones fans reg­u­larly throng in­ter­net mes­sage boards in search of leaked snip­pets, and even the ac­tors and crew are kept in the dark about forth­com­ing twists and turns in the plot.

“I knew the soggy beer­mat in my hand was dy­na­mite,” said Mr Spoiler. “All the sto­ry­lines for the fi­nal sea­son of the world’s big­gest telly pro­gramme were there laid out in front of me.”


Ac­cord­ing to Spoiler, these are just a few of the ex­plo­sive sur­prises that the new se­ries, set to air in 2019, has in store for view­ers:

• In episode one, Tyrion Lan­nis­ter pre­tends to for­get his wed­ding an­niver­sary while se­cretly plan­ning a sur­prise party for his wife Sansa Stark. How­ever, when the evening of the party ar­rives and all the guests are hid­ing be­hind a cur­tain at Win­ter­fell, Lan­nis­ter finds a note from his wife telling him that she has gone to stay with her sis­ter Arya

• In episode three, hop­ing to se­cure a pro­mo­tion, ex­iled knight Sir Jo­rah Mor­mont in­vites his boss Daen­erys Tar­garyen round for a meal. Un­for­tu­nately, he for­gets to tell his wife that Targeryen is the Mother of Dragons and she in­ad­ver­tently de­cides to cook a dragon lasagne for din­ner

• In episode four, Ned Stark’s bas­tard son Jon Snow bor­rows his half-brother Bran’s Va­le­rian Steel sword to cut his hedge. Bran says he wants it back by Satur­day morn­ing as he needs it to slay Roose Bolton for forc­ing his sis­ter into a big­a­mous and abu­sive mar­riage with his son Ram­sey. How­ever, on his way home, Ned leaves the mag­i­cal weapon on the bus to King’s Land­ing

Mr Spoiler said: “Ob­vi­ously, I’m not go­ing to di­vulge how these sen­sa­tional plots de­velop. Rest as­sured the beer­mat went into much greater de­tail, re­veal­ing a se­ries of fan­tas­tic twists and turns that will have view­ers cling­ing to the edge of their seats in sus­pense.”


But he did re­veal that Game of Thrones fans could ex­pect plenty of the ex­plicit eroti­cism and nu­dity that has be­come one of the hit show’s trade­marks through­out the fi­nal, cli­mac­tic sea­son. Ac­cord­ing to Spoiler, shocked view­ers will see:

• Bri­enne of Tarth stood in stock­ings and sus­penders when her ar­mour is ripped off af­ter it gets trapped in a car door

• Eunuch spy­mas­ter Lord Varys climb­ing into bed with naked Dothraki King Khal Drogo af­ter the num­ber 9 on his bed­room door drops round to look like a num­ber 6

• Cer­sei Lan­nis­ter’s bra fly­ing off as she’s do­ing her morn­ing ex­er­cises in the Gar­den of Be­trayal

And sea­son eight is set to leave fans reel­ing as a tranche of beloved char­ac­ters are killed off in one fell swoop. “I don’t want to re­veal too much about the scene in ques­tion,” said Mr Spoiler. “But I will say that this mas­sacre will make the Red Wed­ding look like a pic­nic in the park.”

An HBO spokesman told us that he could nei­ther con­firm nor deny that a scene was planned in which a meet­ing of the Coun­cil of the King’s Hand takes place in Win­ter­fell, wth the mem­bers of the coun­cil, in­clud­ing Lord Varys, Sir Jaime Lan­nis­ter and San­dor ‘The Hound’ Cle­gane, un­aware that Sam Tar­ley, his brother Rod­ney and his Un­cle Al­bert are in the room above, un­bolt­ing a big chan­de­lier off the roof joist to take it down and clean it.
