House of the Dragon, the prequel spin-off of Game of Thrones, the victim of a new leak that has made available to streaming pirates all of episode 10, the season finale of the first HBO season. A similar situation had already happened in the course of the season finals of the Game of Thrones.
HBO has released a harsh statement via its spokesperson, pointing the finger at distribution in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Episode after episode, the Game of Thrones spin-off has been able to build consensus by attracting a growing number of viewers week after week, with as of September 20, according to HBO, it would have attracted an average of 29 million viewers per episode.
then grown in later episodes. On the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregator, the series also scores 85% positive reviews from critics, and 84% from the public. Hollywood Reporter would have been able to trace the source of the leak.
HBO said in a statement: "We are aware that the tenth episode of House of the Dragon was posted on illegal torrent sites. Apparently it originated from distribution partners in the EMEA region. We are aggressively monitoring and withdrawing all copies from the Internet.
. We are very disappointed that this illegal action has ruined the viewing experience for fans loyal to the show, who will be able to see a pure version of the episode when it is made available on Sunday on HBO and HBO Max, streaming exclusively in 4K." That would have happened two days before the release of the House of the Dragon season one finale, the tenth episode was leaked online.
Of course, HBO immediately ran for cover by urging fans not to seek or distribute the pirated copy of the episode. But now the spoilers have turned. The Black Queen, this is the title of the episode, would finally show us the great absences of the last episode: Rhaenyra and Daemon.
We will witness the reaction of the couple to the real coup d'état orchestrated by Otto to put Aegon, the first son of his daughter Alicent, on the throne. The death of Viserys has in fact destroyed that apparent peace between the two factions and started what is called the dance of the Dragons.
