By the old gods and the new, who would have thought that Tyrion Lannister and Arya Stark would die in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones?

Wait! Wait! That’s just a joke. Honest. We have no idea how next summer’s seventh season of HBO’s epic fantasy drama will play out. But some claim to know exactly what’s going to go down, and now it sounds like their theories might be more than just theories.

About three weeks ago, a whole slew of Game of Thrones Season 7 plot details were posted to social news site Reddit by a self-proclaimed insider. Many of the details were quickly debunked by someone who claimed to be close to the show but, in recent days, the leaks have been de-debunked by a small army of Game of Thrones superfans, analyzing cast sightings, shooting locations and other snippets of intel.

The latest consensus seems to be that a lot – if not perhaps all – of the leaked info could be correct, with a thread on the Game of Thrones-focused Freefolk subreddit breaking down the (since-deleted but screen-captured) original posts with new information and insight.

What does that mean for fans? Well, if you’re hankering for some potential juicy spoilers, head on over to reddit.com/r/freefolk and gorge away. You might be ruining all the surprises for next season – the second last of the series – but that’s your right. (For the record, we haven’t so much as glimpsed at the plot details.)

True fans who prefer to remain unsullied, however, could find it a lot harder to make it to next summer without dastardly trolls lobbing surprise spoilers like barrels of wildfire. As if we weren’t already stressed out enough over the fate of our faves. Anyone but Arya!
