It was on April 24 that Game of Thrones fans got to enjoy the premiere of Season 6. The episode titled “The Red Woman” was the 51st episode of the series.
Today, HBO Asia leaked the title of the fifth episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. “The Door” is the name of the episode which has been leaked. HBO U.S. or U.K. have yet to confirm whether or not this leak is correct.
Episode 4 of Season 6 of Game of Thrones is titled “Book of Stranger.” The title of the fourth episode is not nearly as mysterious as the fifth. According to Independent, it is likely “The Stranger” is one facet of the seven Westeros gods. Watchers on the Wall confirms the “Faith of the Seven” storyline will play a role in Season 6 of Game of Thrones.
“Faith of the Seven storyline will still play this season, Margaery and Loras’ current imprisonment and Cersei’s trial on the horizon.”
There is a photo of Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow on the episode page for Episode 4 of Season 6, so fans expect him to have a key role in the episode.
Fans can only assume “The Door” is referring to one of the famous doors from Game of Thrones:
- Could it be the Moon Door at The Eyrie from Season 4 that Lysa Tully was pushed down at?
- Could it be the door at the House of Black and White where Arya waits?
- Is it possible this is just a metaphorical door one of the characters are going to walkthrough?
- Is it a door to the afterlife?
- How about a door to the real life? (Could Jon Snow come back?)
Fans of GoT Are No Strangers To Leaks This Season
The Inquisitr reported that after 10 long months of waiting for Season 6 of Game of Thrones to return, the premiere was leaked online before it aired on television. Unfortunately, the source of the leak was never confirmed. There were some fans who speculated whether or not HBO orchestrated the leak as a promotional stunt to get more views for tonight’s episode. Most fans, however, believed it was a Canadian streaming service who leaked the episode. While the episode was taken down, it was not before some fans were able to reveal some of what happened in the first episode.
With just one episode of Season 6 being released before spoilers and leaks started flying, there is some cause for concern regarding whether or not it will negatively impact the views. Will fans watch the show during the initial premiere with leaks, spoilers, on-demand viewing, and streaming options such as HBO Go and HBO Now? The Inquisitr reported that the first episode of Season 6 did, indeed, break the previous records. There were more than 10.7 million viewers roped in to watch the premiere of Season 6. This is 400,000 more viewers than the previous record Game of Thrones held.
