*Warning: Contains Potential Season Eight Spoliers*
A Reddit user has claimed to have seen the leaked first episode of Game of Thrones season eight, and has posted the ‘plot’ in an intriguing – and quite convincing – thread.
I mean, seriously look away right now if you really, really are worried about spoiling that first crucial episode for yourself.
However, if you believe they are simply bluffing – or if you just can’t wait any longer – then by all means read on…
The mysterious Reddit user – who goes by the name u/Hang_the_dj2 – began by writing about how events will unfold at Winterfell:
FK starts recapitulating the images that we have already seen in the trailer. Varys and Tyrion will arrive at Winterfell by wagon, while Tyrion jokes about Varys and his genitals. Besides and according to him, we will have to see Daenerys telling Sam that she has burned her father and her brother.
The meeting of Jon and Bran: The king in the north will hug his brother and tell him how much he has grown. Subsequently, there will be presentations where Jon officially presents Sansa (images that we have already seen). Daenerys will try to ingratiate herself with Sansa, something like the beautiful north like you.
Bran in the middle of the presentations, will inform about the dragon that the king of the night has and about the threat that supposes, which will lead to a northern assembly. Jon to know this information, send crows to all in order to know these events. In the middle of the northern assembly, Lady Mormont will tell you that they chose Jon as king not Dany. He will answer that they need Daenerys to defeat the king of the night and his army.
They also talk about the army that Cersei is going to send, Tyrion is convinced of it and will talk about it during this assembly, at the same time he speaks well of Jon. All this will make the assembly very tense, especially for Sansa.
Lady of Winterfell will ask Tyrion about this question, the queen’s hand tries to reassure her saying that she does trust her sister. Later we will see the long-awaited reunion between Jon and Arya, which merge in a hug. In addition, weapons will also be displayed. Jon will ask if she has used needle, to which Arya responds yes. He also asks his sister to please help him about Sansa and Daenerys since Jon is aware that his sister does not like Dany.
The Redditor then turned their attention to the goings on in King’s Landing:
Meanwhile in KL, Quyburn informs Cersei that the dead dragon has crossed the wall and is going to attack the seven kingdoms (scene from the trailer). Plus, we’ll see a chat between Euron and Yara. He tells his niece that he is going to KL to fuck the queen. About the GC: it seems they arrive without the elephants what seems to enrage the queen, who will sleep with Euron for bringing her the Essos army.
Theon after rescuing his sister, will fight in the Battle of Winterfell. In the capital of the north, we will see scenes of the Jonerys (YEEESSS). Davos, Tyrion and Varys will organize the troops, since some are still to come as the Karstark. The scene in which Jon and Dany approach the dragons: she proposes that he ride in Rhaegal, Jon climbs and flies. After the flight, there will be a kiss (YESS).
Arya will also be reunited with the Hound and Gendry, who is preparing weapons for the great war. For the Hound, the blacksmith will make a dragonglass ax. The hound will tell Arya because he did not kill him, while Gendry will “call her my lady” to “disturb her”. There will be some sexual tension between Arya and Gendry.
There will be a tense discussion between Sansa and Jon, in which she will ask him if he has kneed in the north or out of love, Jon will be surprised by this question.
Full first episode outline for GOT S8 has leaked online and I am LIVING.

Ser Jorah will be present when Daenerys informs Sam that he has burned his father and brother. The death of his father does not affect him much, but it does affect his brother’s death. However, Sam is grateful for the information and is going to talk to Sam. Both have a pending task, tell Jon who he really is.
Sam goes down to the crypts to inform Jon, but does not reveal it yet but tells him about his father and brother. Sam tells him that Daenerys does not have to be the queen, but that he is the one who should be king, and if friends Sam finally reveals to Jon who really is.
Tormund, Edd and Beric who are in CB, find a kind of weird message on the walls made by the king of the night, which will intrigue us all. After these events, the king of the night will attack CB and thus the episode will end.
I don’t like that GOT episodes are already being leaked. I’m going to be dodging spoilers for the next 2 months.

Is there anything to this potentially spoiler-full thread? Or could this all be just imaginative guesswork? Not long now until we find out…
