The Game of Thrones finale is almost here, and there’s no shortage of theories and speculation around Season 8, Episode 6. However, there’s one GoT leak out there that could actually reveal what happens in the show’s final episode before it even airs.
Warning: HUGE Game of Thrones finale spoilers below.
This leak comes to us from redditor u/afraidpart, who shared several posts full of Game of Thrones spoilers roughly nine months ago. At the time, they were ignored, but midway through Season 8, those claims started to come true.

Here’s a list of Game of Thrones Season 8 leaks from u/afraidpart that already happened:
- The Mountain kills Missandei.
- The Night King dies in Episode 3.
- The Hound and the Mountain both die in Cleganebowl.
- Jaime and Cersei Lannister die together in a somewhat unsatisfying way.
So what’s next? Redditor u/afraidpart’s intel on Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 6 was a little bit less clear, but we do have a few juicy details.
Here’s my personal favorite:
“The Iron Throne gets melted by the dragon.”
Actually, it’s possible that already happened. Daenerys and Drogon basically leveled King’s Landing in Episode 5, and that may have included the Iron Throne. We never got a look into the throne room during last night’s episode. Could the Game of Thrones finale open on an image of the throne melted or destroyed? We wouldn’t be surprised if that’s exactly what happens.
On a similar note, the Season 8 leak claims that “Jon Snow finally sees Arya after they get to the throne.” We’re guessing this means Jon will see his sister using her Faceless Man training, possibly right after she assassinates someone else (Dany?).
As for Tyrion, it looks like he’ll do exactly what we expect and turn on Daenerys in the Game of Thrones finale:
When Daenerys is making her speech everyone is mad at her. Tyrion makes some comment (he doesn’t get sound) and throws his pin (?) on the ground and she sends him to the prison? Idk what was going on here.
Finally, when it comes to Jon and Dany, it’s unclear exactly how Game of Thrones Season 8 will end. Based on this leak, it seems HBO might have actually filmed multiple different versions of the finale. However, we do get one pretty awesome description of how Daenerys could die:
Danaerys actually DOES die, she’s killed (stabbed I think) by Jon Snow. She goes back to the throne room and touches the throne. Has no idea WHY he kills her, there’s a missing chunk. But it happens in the throne room. I asked him why and he said he doesn’t know and I don’t even think they saw the actual death scene, just the fact that she’s dead. So he’s only assuming she gets murdered, otherwise she commits suicide but that doesn’t make much sense. Then the dragon flies away with her body but doesn’t kill Snow. Either way, she dies.
That’s a lot to pack into a single episode of television, but with an 80-minute runtime, it’s possible that Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 6 will be able to get the job done.
The Game of Thrones finale airs Sunday, May 19 at 9 p.m. Eastern on HBO.
