Home of the Dragon Season 1 Finale Leaks
House of the Dragon viewers have had themselves some enjoyable watching the Sport of Thrones prequel over the past two months. However it isn’t Game of Thrones with out some type of drama taking place, and forward of this Sunday’s season finale, the episode up and received leaked out of nowhere.
Titled “The Black Queen,” streams of the episode hit on-line on Friday, confirmed by numerous web sites and social media typically. For those who haven’t already, go forward and mute something you possibly can, as a result of people simply won’t give a shit about spoilers.

Leaks are nothing new for Sport of Thrones, which had plenty of them all through its eight-season run. Varied measures have been stored to stop this from taking place, from creating digital-only variations of scripts that self-erase after a scene was filmed to HBO simply not giving advance screeners to press. And even exterior of that, WB’s had a foul run with leaks currently: the post-credits scene to this weekend’s Black Adam leaked (not that it was onerous to guess what it will be, truthfully), as did the story beats to its newly launched superhero recreation, Gotham Knights.
If there’s any good that comes out of this, it’s that the leak occurred on Friday and so comparatively near the finale. Two days to keep away from spoilers is unhealthy, however not terrible, so hopefully those that watch the present can final that lengthy.
