A Girl basically just confirmed that the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 leaks out there are true.
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) told RadioTimes it really, really bothers her that someone out there has spilled the beans on what happens in the 2017 season. She's not event talking about the people who secretly snap photos on set and share them on social media. She's hurt by the betrayal of someone on the inside -- because only someone on the inside could've leaked the entire Season 7 plot, which they apparently did months ago, with scene-by-scene descriptions now floating along the Internet for anyone to find.
Here's what Maisie Williams told RadioTimes.com:
"It really, really upsets me. Because, there's only a certain group of people who'd look at that anyway, compared to the audience that watches the show. It hurts. It's just like, oh we wanted to tell this story, and yeah, lots of people don't want to read it, and don't want to look at it. But then it's even more annoying when you know [the leaks] might be from someone on the inside, and it's just like... you're trying to make something really cool, that is really cool, and people really like, and it's like 'stop ruining it'. It's such a childish, annoying thing to do. And yeah, it's sad. It really annoys me. I don't know if that's unexpected, that I'd be like 'Oh, I don't really mind!' People still watch it, but it does really grind my gears."
It would grind our gears, too. If she had said she really didn't mind the leaks, then maybe we'd think the spoilers were a false trail. Several of the leaked scenes have been confirmed through Watchers on the Wall set spoilers and other news, but there was always the possibility that some or even most of the leak was wrong. That seems less and less likely by the day.
She's right that most fans don't follow spoilers, and even the fans that seek out spoilers were taken aback to see the (alleged) full season rundown leaked on Reddit so far in advance. That's not even what spoiler fans want. They want teases to whet their appetites in the long wait for new footage. But now the gods have cursed us for our greed. Sigh. It'll still be a completely different experience to watch the scenes play out.
"Game of Thrones" Season 7 premieres this summer on HBO.
