Game of Thrones season 7 finale Live Stream Watch 2017 Game of Thrones” (9 p.m., HBO):  We’ll gladly bend the knee for “The Dragon and the Wolf,” tonight’s highly anticipated season finale. And though we’re still bummed out that we only got a measly seven episodes

Season seven of Game of Thrones has almost finished, only one episode remaining. Can Arya and Sansa leave their differences behind them and take on Littlefinger? What will happen in the Dragonpit? Will The Hound battle The Mountain

this year, at least tonight’s installment will be super-sized — clocking in at 79 minutes, 43 seconds. Here’s our spoiler-free preview for the finale. All these questions will hopefully be resolved when the finale, titled ‘The Dragon and The Wolf’ airs tonight. Here’s everything you need to know about watching the episode.

With just over a day to go for the Game of Thrones season 7 finale, the HBO hackers have reportedly sent its detailed plot outline to publications like Mashable, The Independent and a reddit user, in addition to releasing it on the “deep web”.

Meanwhile, in setbacks unrelated to the hack, the fourth episode of Game of Thrones season 7 was leaked two days before its official telecast date in India (four people were arrested in connection with the leak) while HBO Nordic mistakenly aired the sixth episode in place of episode 5 in Spain.

The ‘Mr Smith’ hackers had threatened to release the GoT season 7 finale if HBO didn’t pay up the $6.5 million bitcoin ransom. As per Mashable, the group claims they have released the finale script on the “deep web” and sold the information they stole from HBO to ‘three customers’ who were willing to pay the iron price.

Game of Thrones’ Season 7

Game of Thrones’ penultimate season is now at a close, and we officially have a zombie dragon. The Season 7 finale brought a lot of things to a head that were set up earlier in the season—from that tense meeting with all the characters to Jon and Dany finally bumpin’ uglies­—but as viewers noticed from the very beginning, this truncated season started playing by new timeline rules. While it used to take entire seasons for characters to move from Point A to Point B, this season saw characters go from A to B to A again in the span of a single episode, all in service of expediting the storytelling. We expected things to move a bit faster given that this season consisted of only seven episodes instead of the usual 10, but the quickness on display in Season 7 was not only whiplash-inducing at times, it also resulted in some questionable narrative shortcuts.

Indeed, one imagines when show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss sat down to breakdown Season 7, they knew they wanted a few key things to occur by the end of the season, chiefly the Night King in possession of a zombie dragon, a romance between Jon and Daenerys consummated, and a big sit down with all the major characters. But whereas Game of Thrones used to take seasons to play out these long arcs, especially when characters are very far apart to begin with, all of this came together in the span of a few episodes.


One of the bigger complaints about Season 7 came in the penultimate episode, “Beyond the Wall.” In hindsight, it’s clear that this episode’s purpose was to get a zombie dragon into the possession of the Night King and to give the characters an excuse to go meet Cersei. But this “Operation Zombie Drop” plan seemed boneheaded from the get-go—Cersei has shown herself to be ruthless, sociopathic, and narcissistic, so why in the world would these characters think showing her a zombie would change her mind? Cersei’s most important character trait is that she lacks empathy for anyone not named “Lannister”! The inevitable rescue by Dany on the back of her dragon was obvious from the get-go (The show’s not going to kill Jon Snow again, and how else is the group expected to escape the massive ice zombie horde?), and so an episode that should have been full of tension and shocking deaths instead felt like a bit like a paint-by-numbers approach to storytelling.

But as we saw at the end of “The Dragon and the Wolf,” the end of “Beyond the Wall” was, as expected, a tee-up to give the Night King his own dragon. And with a dragon in his possession, the Night King can finally tear down that wall. This was, admittedly, a pretty badass sequence, and one the show has been building to for years. But was it worth the “Operation Zombie Drop” storytelling shortcut to get there? And what was the Night King’s plan for getting across the wall these past six seasons without a zombie dragon in his possession? Was he marching towards the Wall in the hopes that he’d just kind of figure it out when he got there?


Then there’s the Jon/Dany romance. Of course as we get towards the finish line, Game of Thrones isn’t going to be quite as shocking as it was in earlier seasons, because the ramifications of certain decisions lead to a conclusion, not more story. And the “Song of Ice and Fire” moniker should’ve tipped everyone off that Game of Thrones, ultimately, is a story about Jon and Dany. But again the fast-forwarded storytelling this season really pushed these two strangers and former dueling Iron Throne contenders into a quick “meet cute/conflict/resolution” arc that culminated in the duo having all the #BoatSex. Was the coupling of Jon and Dany worth the jarring timeline shifts at Dragonstone? This one’s tough to say, given that the Jon/Dany storyline very much seems to be the heart of the final season, and indeed matters will be further complicated when Jon realizes that not only is he the true born heir to the Iron Throne, but that Dany is his aunt. A super hot aunt to be sure, but his aunt nonetheless.

Game of Thrones’ Season 7

Since the conclusion of Season 5, Game of Thrones has squarely been in off-book territory. We know that author George R.R. Martin shared the rough outline of what happens at the end of his book series with Benioff and Weiss, but these two showrunners have now been going it alone for two seasons. And in this penultimate season, it felt like the two were starting to take some shortcuts for the sake of ending this thing once and for all, in marked contrast to the feel of the show beforehand. To be fair, shortcuts are a part of storytelling sometimes, but usually you hope the viewer/reader is invested enough in the characters/story that they won’t care. But Season 7 felt chock-full of calculated decisions meant to put things in place for some kind of payoff, which is the nature of writing fiction to be sure, but here you could really feel how everything was in service of hitting certain plot points at certain times.

At the end of the day the question is whether you buy into the story and characters enough to forgive these shortcuts, or if they were too big to be ignored. Plenty of folks are fine just being entertained by the blockbuster visuals of Game of Thrones, and a zombie dragon breathing blue fire may be all the payoff you need. That’s completely understandable. But as someone who’s been more intrigued by the dialogue scenes and character machinations, I felt Season 7’s shortcuts jarring. Does this mean I’m sitting out the final season and not watching in protest? Puh-leeze. But like the seemingly unbeatable zombie horde marching towards humanity, the series’ increasingly plot-driven focus on spectacle feels like it’s leaving its soul behind.

ME, WATCHING GAME OF THRONES SEASON 1: wtf is up with all the incest ME, BY SEASON 7 … the final reveal was obvious throughout. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoyed Littlefinger’s death. It was a good scene. But ItThe HBO hackers’ incursion into the data territory of the US-based television network has taken another drastic turn. The fact that there are multiple hackers breaching into the channel’s security and leaking consequential information is leading to new hacks everyday. The original hackers, who call themselves the ‘Mr. Smith group’ had released 1.5 terabytes of information including scripts and other crucial information about the employees. The same group has now threatened to release the finale of Game Of Thrones Season 7, as per

The channel has so far refused to participate in any exchange with the hackers, as they continue their onslaught, one hack at a time. The original hackers had also demanded $6.5 million as ransom for the stolen data, in an ultimatum to HBO President and CEO Richard Plepler. HBO had confirmed the hack and the demands for ransom, as well.

Recently, OurMine, another group of hackers had managed to gain control of the company’s social media accounts. The group went on to post a message on both Twitter and Facebook, which read, “Hi OurMine here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security  Contact.”

The hacking row is not the only thing that is giving the channel’s executives sleepless nights. Recently, HBO Spain had mistakenly aired an episode a week before its scheduled telecast. Now what remains to be seen is how the producers manage to minimise the damage.

Game of Thrones is arguably the biggest show on TV with the explosive episode 6 set to air tonight in the UK ahead of episode 7, next week’s big finale.

The HBO show has topped the list of most illegally downloaded shows on annual torrent and online stream charts since 2012.

Two of the show’s biggest episodes, episode 4 The Spoils of War and episode 6 Beyond the Wall (previously thought to be called Death is the Enemy), were leaked ahead of their broadcast date.

Hackers who targeted HBO and reportedly stole 1.9 terabytes of sensitive data also leaked episodes of scripts ahead of their airing date.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 7: Preview

After tonight there is only one more episode left of Game of Thrones season 7, and HBO will be bracing themselves for more potential leaks.

The hackers have recently released several unaired episodes of HBO shows.

And they have now threatened to release Game of Thrones season 7 episode 7 – this season’s big finale – ahead of its broadcast date.

Game of Thrones S7 ep07 will be shown first in the US on Sunday August 27, and will be simulcast in the UK at 2am on Monday.

Mashable reported that a group claiming to be the HBO hackers contacted them and handed them login details to ALL of the network’s social media channels.

In an e-mail sent over the weekend, they added: “Be ready for GOT S7 E6 & E7 as soon as possible.”

The threat from the hackers was sent ahead of the Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 original airing date.

The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 7 – entitled Beyond the Wall – will be shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK at 9pm tonight.

While the hackers threatened to release the episode, previously thought to be called Death is the Enemy, they had no need to.

Last Wednesday Game of Thrones season 7 suffered a devastating leak, but not at the hands of hackers.

Episode 6 of the hit show was broadcast FOUR days before it was officially meant to be released.

It was available for more than an hour on HBO’s on-demand service in Spain.

In the aftermath of episode 4 epic conquest of Highgarden, one so brutal and violent that it almost cost her one of her prized dragons in Drogon, the preview that airs features her warning the remaining Lannister soldiers/people of the region that they either bend the knee to her or suffer the consequences. She claims that she doesn’t want to kill anyone … and yet she also just had her army plus one of her dragons murder an unspeakable number of people for the sake of taking over the territory.

Here’s everything we know about season seven’s upcoming 7th episode.

Drogon is fine-

“The Spoils of War” ended with poor Drogon getting shot by Cersei’s gargantuan, dragon-slaying crossbow; “Blood of the Dragon” reveals that the endangered creature is alive and well. Not only that, but he appears to serve as the centerpiece during Dany’s Mad Queen-ish monologue.

“I’m not here to murder,” Dany says moments after murdering countless Lannister soldiers. “Bend the knee and join me. Or refuse, and die.”

Just in case the surviving troops have any doubts of her sincerity, Drogon lingers in the background, presumably ready to torch anyone left standing on their feet.

Varys and Tyrion have a heart to heart-

Against all council, dear ol’ Dany went ahead and mounted a dragon-Dothraki attack against the Lannister forces. Tyrion tried to talk her out of it. Jon Snow tried to talk her out of it. Varys tried to talk her out of it. But if the Mother of Dragons has proved anything, it’s that she’s more than a little bullheaded.

“You need to find a way to make her listen,” the Spider says as Tyrion drinks his stresses away.

The problem here is that the two of them have been trying to “make her listen” the entire time, but to no avail. Both men are excellent at playing the game, so the question is: How will they try to play Dany in the season’s few remaining episodes?

Drogon and Jon have some beef-

Drogon looks pretty unhappy with Jon in the teaser for next week’s episode. Also, his tongue looks really gross. But more importantly, where is all this animosity coming from? Dany and her dragons are connected on a deep level, so it’s likely Drogon’s angry growl emanates from his mom. Did Jon do something to piss Dany off, or has she simply grown tired of having him as her guest at Dragonstone? Might be time to pack up your obsidian and make for Winterfell, young Jon Snow.

Queen Cersei isn’t shook-

Sure, Daenerys may have just wiped out a huge chunk of the Lannister forces, and, yeah, Jaime might be (but definitely isn’t) drowning at the bottom of some lake, but Queen Cersei isn’t shook.

“Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it,” she confidently tells Maester Qyburn.

Why is she so confident? Their dragon-slaying crossbow didn’t work out quite as well as they had hoped. Maybe the duplicitous duo have another trick up their sleeve.

Bad things are coming-

“Winter is coming.” The Starks have been saying it since season one, and few bothered to listen. Now, the frozen, undead army is officially on the march.

“Bran saw the Night King and his army marching towards East Watch,” Jon Snow says in Dany’s council room.

The Battle of Hardhome proved just how tough of an adversary the Night’s King is. The White Walkers decimated the wildlings and nearly took Jon’s life as well, and we have to believe that skirmish was but a fraction of their full force.

Hopefully, Jon will mine plenty of dragonglass for the upcoming war, and Daenerys and her dragons will come to the North’s aid to kill the undead army once and for
