Game of Thrones Season 7 Leaks: HBO Spain leaks episode 6 in full
The only place where more heads are likely to roll than Westeros? HBO’s Spanish offices, after it was discovered that HBO Spain (or HBO España) accidentally aired season 7 episode 6 ‘Death Is The Enemy’ in full.
Subscribers to the pay TV channel had 100% legal access to the episode for an hour via the service’s on-demand element, before the mistake was realised and the episode taken down.
An hour is more than enough time for the internet to act, though, and episode 6 is now understood to be doing the rounds on a number of popular torrenting sites, as well as reddit.
We won’t spoil it for you (or ourselves) – you should be especially wary of dodgy torrents and streams, as arrests have been made recently – but those who want it will no doubt find it easy enough to locate.
Now, on to the trailers for those of who like to play by the rules.
Game of Thrones Spoilers: HBO hack latest news
Just can’t wait to learn what happens next?
Well, apparently neither can hacking types, as HBO recently confirmed it had suffered a major breach, with hackers revealing they had up to 1.5TB of data relating to top HBO shows like Game of Thrones and Ballers – including scripts (and therefore spoilers) for Game of Thrones season 7.
The group behind the hack have since posted another small sample online, which features spoilers for Game of Thrones episode 5, ‘Eastwatch’. It also seemed to reveal their motivation – money. The hackers have made an anonymous ransom demand of HBO, which the network almost certainly won’t pay, but it’s another twist.

Prior to the HBO hack, our teasers for season 7 were largely based on leaks from the Game of Thrones set, including:
- Jon Snow finally meets Daenerys Targaryen, who is his aunt (despite being younger than him)
- Theon Greyjoy will fight his uncle Euron Grejoy
- Gendry is (almost certainly) coming back
- Sansa Stark will (almost certainly) make it through the season, despite rumours she was to be killed off
But what’s more interesting is the major plot leak that was posted to Reddit last year. A user called /u/awayforthelads posted what he claimed were important plot points on the website, citing his source as a friend of a friend.
The account has since been deleted, but another Reddit user has compiled the information in chronological order.
We’ve got no way of verifying whether or not any of the following is true, but it’s worth taking a look if you’re interested in (and not afraid of) spoilers.
