In the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 premiere we saw Arya exact her revenge against Frey family, Bran reaching The Wall, Daenerys closing her return home with a question for Tyrion, "Shall we begin?" and all of these actions (spoilers) were originally posted in a reddit thread by a now-defunct account in October 2016. 

The same subreddit, r/FreeFolk, had a thread last year that correctly spoiled nearly all of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6. This time a user by the name of u/awayforthelads posted, and then deleted his/her account, a thread claiming to spoil the entire plot for season 7.

Read‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Predictions, Spoilers Confirmed? Reddit Post, Set Photos Claim To Tell All

The bullet points below are direct quotes from reddit but we’ve also added some supporting photo leaks from the set as well as screenshots from the trailers that give more credibility to the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 reddit leak. Warning: There will be significant Game of Thrones season 7 spoilers below. 

The reddit thread, which (again) was posted in October 2016, claimed that in ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 episode 1:

  • “The White Walkers march toward the Wall

  • Bran crosses the Wall, meets with the new Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, Dolorous Edd

  • Sansa wants to give the lands of those who betrayed Jon to those who supported him, but Jon (in first episode) refused to hold the children of the Karstark and Umber families responsible for the actions of their fathers. This doesn't please Lyanna Mormont (or Sansa) but Jon basically just tells her to deal with it - he doesn't plan to rule the North the way it always has been.

  • Arya uses Walder Frey's face to hold a banquet and poison his sons. Makes sure the women are dismissed, first. Will happen in the first couple episodes.

  • At the end of Episode One, Dany and her fleet land at Dragonstone. Nobody says anything. She walks up the steps to the keep, and we follow her through the building until she reaches Stannis' old War Room. She looks out the window at the land ahead that used to belong to her family. She picks up one of the chess-like pieces on the table and looks at Tyrion, who has followed her up. She says one line: ‘Shall we begin?’ End of Episode.

While these 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 spoilers weren't 100 percent correct for episode 1 (Arya didn't dismiss the women first), they were extremely accurate, especially if you consider the show was filming at the time of the post and that a trailer for Season 7 was still months away.  

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Spoilers: Ice Dragon, A Major Alliance And When the Wall Falls

Now that we have confirmation that the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 spoilers from the reddit leak have some validity, let's dive into what is likely to happen in episode 2 and the rest of the season. Some episode have a ton of information, while other 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 spoilers weren't attached to a specific episode. 

Episode 2

  • ​“Jon receives a raven from Dany, she's summoning the lords of Westeros. Jon and Davos decide to go because they need the dragonglass from Dragonstone
  • Jon leaves Sansa in charge of Winterfell.
  • Jon leaves Ghost at Winterfell, where he stays all season.”

In the first line of the teaser for 'Game of Thrones' Season7 episode 2 we hear Lord Royce say a "Targaryen cannot be trusted." This backs up the reddit user's claim Jon Snow receives a raven from Daenerys. The user also said, but didn't attach to a specific episode, that Arya "encounters Nymeria on her way to Winterfell. Must happen within episodes 1-3, maybe early episode 4." In the brief episode 2 teaser it looks like Arya does come into contact a wolf. This might not be Nymeria but don't be shocked if she appears in this scene.  

Episodes 3 & 4

  • “Jon and Davos arrive at Dragonstone. Tyrion meets them on the beach, and the Dothraki take their ship.
  • Tyrion brings them to meet Dany, encountering Missandei and Grey Worm on the way. The "throne room" contains a number of Dothraki.
  • Dany and Jon meet. Dany demands he bend the knee, which he refuses. Evidently, he discusses the WWs, but she doesn't believe him. Tyrion insists that Jon isn't crazy.
  • Davos tries to mention Jon's resurrection, but Jon dismisses it.
  • Dany respects Jon immediately, Jon to Dany maybe not as much?
  • Bran arrives at Winterfell. Meera returns home.”

Based on several photos and videos from the set we do KNOW the meeting between Jon Snow and Daenerys happens, along with Tyrion and Davos present.

  • “Arya arrives at Winterfell.
  • Tyrion has at least one scene trying to convince Jon that Dany is the best choice for Westeros. Unclear if this is before or after the scene where Jon actually meets her. Likely episode 3, possibly episode 4.
  • Jon and Theon meet, Jon telling Theon that if it wasn't for what he did for Sansa, he'd be dead. Likely happens episode 3, but could happen episode 4.
  • The Dothraki and Dany attack the Lannister army on their way back from the Reach. Jamie and Bron are both there. Despite the Lannister army having a giant anti-dragon spear gun designed by Qyburn, they are defeated. Bron saves Jamie from a dragon, and the two manage to escape. Likely episode 4 or 5. Jon remains at Dragonstone during this battle, as he is not aligned with her yet.
  • Jon isn't afraid of Drogon and pets him on Dany's return from the battle, which Drogon allows. This surprises Dany. Likely episode 4 or 5.

Arya returning to Winterfell is one of the more obvious 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 spoilers to predict and confirm, but we do see in multiple trailers and official images Arya in the North in what appears to be Stark gear. Jon meeting Drogon isn't in the trailer but set leaks do show Jon Snow interacting with the dragon. 

Episode 5:

  • “Sam leaves Oldtown for Winterfell with Gilly and baby Sam.
  • After Dany's attack on the Lannisters, Jon realizes that what he needs to do is provide proof of the Undead Army. Likely episode 4 or 5.
  • Jorah reunites with Dany at Dragonstone.
  • Jon receives a raven telling him that Bran and Arya are at Winterfell.
  • Jamie, Bronn, Tyrion and Davos have a secret meeting at some point where Tyrion tries to persuade them to surrender to Dany, which Jamie ignores. Unclear if this happens before or after Dany ambushes the Lannister army.
  • Gendry's in Kings Landing making weapons, and he is found by Davos."

Daenerys ambushing the Lannister army appears to be legit based on a screenshot from the 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 trailer. In the image we see the Dothraki on horseback taking out what appears to be a Lannister soldier.

Episode 6

There’s always one episode in each season that is the episode of the season and it looks like that will be ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 episode 6. 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 episode 6 spoilers from reddit have a ton to back it up from the trailer as well. 

  • “The party travels to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea by boat. Davos stays behind while the others go wight hunting.
  • Jon leads a small force (himself, The Hound, Beric, Thoros, Tormund, Jorah and Gendry (WHY?!) to capture a wight.

Here's Beric Dondarrion wielding a fire sword and then we see Jon Snow surrounded by wights with what appears to be a man fighting with a sword of fire behind him.

  • The team is attacked by the Night King's army, including a wight polar bear. The bear kills Thoros (apparently a slow death).
  • They are surrounded on an island on a frozen lake and are nearly overcome when Dany and her dragons show up. She flies most of the team back to Eastwatch, but Jon is left behind.

Now there isn't photo evidence of Dany riding to the rescue but the trailers do show a group of men forming a circle in what looks like a last line of defense.

  • "Jon is almost killed, but Coldhands/Benjen arrives and sends Jon off with his horse while continuing to fight the horde. Jon watches Benjen swarmed by undead as he rides, half dead, to safety."

  • Viserion is killed and raised as the Night King's mount.
  • Jon offers to lay down his title as KITN if Dany and her forces will help against the WWs. This scene is private."

Episode 7

  • Sansa sentences Littlefinger to death, which Arya carries out.
  • Cersei awakens in a bed soaked with blood. The general consensus is that she miscarries.
  • Sam and Bran figure out Jon's heritage. He is apparently a legitimized Targaryen named "Aegon".
  • Jon and Dany have sex for the first time on a boat headed North.
  • The Wall falls at the end of the episode. The Night King attacks the Wall with the reanimated Viserion. He now breathes blue flame.

There are no trailer screenshots (yet) to back up what appears to be a tremendous 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 finale. The now-deleted reddit thread also claimed to know several other plot points but didn’t attribute to a specific episode. We’ll list those below.

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Spoilers: Dragonpit Meeting, Euron Attacks & End of Sand Snakes

  • “Cersei believes she is pregnant again with Jamie's child. She has Qyburn examine her. Cersei does not hesitate in telling Jamie. Likely happens within the first couple episodes.
  • Dorne and Highgarden get trashed within the first couple episodes by the Lannisters.
  • Euron kills 2 of the Sand Snakes, imprisons Ellaria and makes her watch as Tyene dies a slow death from poison.
  • Euron's fleet destroys Yara's and he takes her prisoner. Theon abandons her, jumps overboard and is rescued by some Iron Born.

While Euron attacking Yara and Theon seems logical following Season 6, the trailer does back up the reddit 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 spoilers with Euron's fleet attacking Theon and Yara on the ships.

Euron's battle with Theon and Yara is absolutely happening. 

  • "Dany torches some Westerosi lords (including Sam's father and brother).
  • Tyrion persuades Dany that most of the people who would die in a direct dragon attack on Kings Landing would be innocent.
  • Jorah and Sam meet in Oldtown and find a way to cure his Greyscale.
  • Tyrion spends most of the season advising Dany.
  • Tyrion plans an attack on Casterly Rock involving a secret sewer entrance he used to use to sneak whores into the castle
  • Jamie travels to Highgarden and Olenna drinks poison. The claim is this happens when the Lannister armies sack Highgarden. She admits to having killed Joffrey, and Jamie allows her to drink the poison. Jamie returns to King's Landing in time for the dragonpit meeting.
  • The attack is actually on the road from Highgarden to Kings Landing. The Dothraki and Dany attack the Lannister army in its way back from destroying The Reach. Jaime and Bronn are there (with a giant anti-dragon spear gun created by Qyburn) but the army is defeated. Jaime and Bronn escape, but only just - Bronn saves Jaime from trying to attack a dragon head on himself. Jon isn't at this, he's not completely aligned with Dany at this point, although he's at Dragonstone when she returns. This is when he pets Drogon.
  • Jorah doesn't care for Jon initially, but they warm up to each other pretty quickly. Includes a scene where Jon offers Longclaw back to Jorah, who refuses it.
  • Sam, Gilly and baby Sam leave Oldtown in episode 5 for Winterfell, but no claims that they actually make it there. Though he DID say "Sam and Bran figure out Jon's heritage" and that Gilly figures out Rhaegar's marriage status. Does this mean that Sam and Bran TOGETHER figure it out when Sam and Gilly reach Winterfell? Unclear.
  • Arya and Brienne spar, but Brienne is in attendance at the dragonpit scene. So either Brienne separates from the main group and returns to Winterfell (VERY quickly) AFTER the dragonpit meeting, or she doesn't join Jon and Davos initially to Dragonstone. She likely meets up with them at some point after they've left the Wall with the Wight. So the sparing likely happens in episode 4 or 5, and Brienne leaves Winterfell later.
  • Meeting at the dragonpit with basically everyone. They demonstrate the reality of the white walkers and it terrifies Cersei (apparently the Mountain chops up the wight and it keeps moving, Jon shows them the only way to kill it is with dragonglass). She tells them she will send forces to help defeat the undead, but admits to Jamie she was lying. She wants the undead to clear out as many of her enemies as possible. Disgusted, Jamie begins to ride North. Likely happens episode 7.
  • Tyrion takes a moment to talk to Cersei alone after the Dragonpit parlay.
  • There will be a flashback scene to Rhaegar and Lyanna's wedding.
  • Littlefinger tries to play Arya and Sansa against each other, using the letter Sansa wrote to Robb (at the behest of Cersei and Littlefinger) to swear fealty to Joffrey. Sansa figures out she's being played with Bran's help.”

So that's a lot to unpack. Looks like so much of the 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 spoilers from reddit are backed up by the trailers. While several of the leaks from Season 7 aren't attributed to one episode it seems we're in for a non-stop season. We'll continue to update our 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 predictions and spoilers as the season moves along. Stay with IBT for updates.
