Do you remember the fate of the characters of Game of Thrones at the end of season 7? Well it looks like Season 8 of the popular series is going to get a similar treatment in 2018. There are still three days for 2017 to close, and apparently a part of the script of next year’s season of the series has been leaked, revealing some major spoilers.

Although, the series makers have shared no word of confirmation about the leak, a DNA report reveals that a Reddit user posted four pages —one page from Episode 3, two from Episode 5, and one from Episode 6 — of the scripts of particular episodes of the final season of Game of Thrones.

Spoilers ahead regarding the events of Season 8 and the upcoming season! You have been warned!

As we mentioned, this “leaked script”, may or may not be genuine. However, if we go by it, the script goes on to reveal what will happen in Westeros now that the Night King has breached the wall.

The leak describes the third episode of Season 8, with “Tyrion, Arya, Sansa, Brienne, Podrick and the Hound racing away through a crowd of wights. The wagon filled with these characters is driven by the Hound. The wagon crashes and a Dothraki bloodrider, who has been turned into a wight, latches on.”

According to the Redditor, around this point, we will have to bid goodbye to Podrick.

In the fifth episode of the final season, the leak reveals three scenes. The first two are between Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister, where the two argue in the throne room at the Red Keep. Jaime is trying to convince Cersei that Jon Snow is not the enemy. Her enemies are outside the city gate. Cersei is in no mood to listen and she chastises Jaime for leaving her in her time of need.

In the second scene, the script describes Jaime trying to dissuade Cersei from doing the unthinkable – to stop the White Walkers from taking King’s Landing.

The third scene describes Brienne and the Hound (without Podrick) riding through the streets of King’s Landing, trying to reach the Red Keep.

In the sixth episode, which is the also the finale according to the leak, there is a scene between Tyrion Lannister and Bronn of Blackwater. While cursing Jaime for ‘getting himself killed’ and never giving him the promised castle, Bronn rides with Tyrion in the countryside.

Tyrion rejects this notion and presents him with the Freys’ property – The Twins. The conversation between the two also suggests that Bronn ‘single-handedly took out the Golden Company generals.’

Apart from Jaime Lannister and Podrick, the scenes don’t shed much light on the fate of other surviving characters in the series.

If this is true, the Season 8 is going to be a true bloodshed!
