These are some of many sad and emotional tweets. HBO and “The Game of Thrones” really needs to control the leaks. But if we look closely these leaks have no effect on the rating of the show, as each episode is better than the last one, but let’s hope there are no more leaks ahead, this season has only episode 7 the finale to go. The only affected people from the leaks are the people who don’t want to know anything in advance, no matter what they do they still come across spoilers.
Season 7, Episode 6 will air (again) on Sunday, Aug. 20 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
