Over the past week, photos emerged from the Zumaia set on Itzurun beach showing spoiler-y scenes of Jon Snow meeting with some MAJOR characters.
While the leaks are a treat for those who want info on the HBO fantasy hit months ahead of time, there’s a small chance some photos and video from set won’t actually reflect what’s in the show!
That’s right. Some of these new “spoilers” can very well be staged by the producers so they can misdirect the show’s passionate fandom!
That happened to be the case last year when photographers snapped pics of former GoT actor Sibel Kekilli — who played Tyrion’s former lover Shae — visiting the set.
Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss dressed her in costume to be photographed on set JUST to mess with the press!
This tactic caused many sites to claim Shae would somehow return in Season 6, adding confusion to which dead characters would be coming back, since Kit Harington was spotted on set in costume as well.
Though some might think it’s a stretch that the showrunners would film an entire fake scene just to throw us off their scent, it’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility.
Especially since the key players are all expected to be crossing paths in Season 7, it wouldn’t surprise us if the producers went to extra lengths just to keep fans on their toes. Either way, we’ll find out what really goes down when the show returns next summer.
Do YOU think the recent GoT spoilers are the real deal?
