After facing a major fiasco last year where the first four episodes of "Game of Thrones" Season 5 were leaked online ahead of the show's scheduled premiere, HBO has been extra careful this year about keeping everything regarding the new season pretty close to the chest. But despite all the heavy security measures, a "GoT" Season 6 leak â€” although not a major one â€” has happened.
GeeklyInc, which leaked the titles for the first six episodes of Season five in 2015, has done something similar this year, releasing episode 2 and 3 titles of season 6, according to The Independent.
Now even though this is an unconfirmed leak and should be treated as more of a rumour than anything else, its important to note the episode titles released by the site last year were 100 percent accurate.
HBO has already announced the premiere episode title, "The Red Woman," while the second will apparently be called "Home" and the third "Oathbreaker."
The Independent report speculates "Home" is pretty generic and could mean almost anywhere for any one of the characters, from Winterfell for what is left of the Stark children to Casterly Rock for one of the Lannisters. It could also mean Daenerys finding her home among the Dothraki. Of course, we're more inclined to believe it could mean Winterfell for Jon Snow, or should we say, Lord Jon Stark? Wishful thinking.
On the other hand, "Oathbreaker" is almost guaranteed to be about Brienne. In the earlier season, she took an oath swearing to protect the Stark children, and the name of her sword is Oathkeeper so there could be some connection there.
Meanwhile, "Game of Thrones" Season 6 premiered in Los Angeles earlier this week, to a select audience including some journalists. Daily Telegraph shared some spoiler-free details about the episode, calling it "heavy on violence and brutality featuring epic scenes of armies on the march."
However, it's the cryptic statement about the episode's ending that might give hope to Jon Snow fans. By the end of the episode, "a luridly surprising twist sets the scene for some powerful sorcery to come."
