So the only thing more mysterious than Westeros to Game of Thrones watchers is the anonymous Spanish dude who knows more than George R.R. Martin. At least that’s how it seems. But he’s just guessing — if you believe his perfectly crafted disclaimer.
HBO is trying to stop the “Spanish Spoiler” from continuing to expose the plots of Season 6 Game of Thrones episodes via YouTube. Who’s spilling the Westeros beans to this guy? HBO is trying to find out. So far it has at least been effective in blocking the videos, even though some users say that oversteps the network’s authority. As the Spanish Spoiler disclaims before each video:
“I can’t put spoilers for the [fill in the blank] episode of the 6th season of Game of Thrones, because HBO forbids it. But we can always count predictions, theories, and analyze will happen. And who knows, maybe guess everything.”
Yup, technically there’s nothing wrong with guessing about what will happen. That disclaimer is spot-on. In fact, if HBO somehow eliminated speculation, all the viral chatter about its giant hit would be as dead as Jon Snow. Wait a minute…
