    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    They covered the new vid here (in the comments): https://www.reddit.com/r/freefolk/comments/acborz/anyone_have_a_translation_for_frikis_latest Anytime Friki does a video within a few hours there is a thread on Freefolk about it where users translate what he said in the comments. To find it you just need to browse the "new" section of Freefolk after he does a video (depending on when you look, you might need to go back a few pages). Here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/freefolk/new/ Friki's new vid does not have new spoilers, he mostly just shoots down a fake leaker who came on Freefolk and claimed Tyrion kills everyone in the end.
  2. New Martin Interview He says he's not sure if he'll go straight into writing ADOS after WInds or stop to do F&B II or another D&E. Or two.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Just speculation and analysis. Friki said so himself on Reddit. He said if he ever gets new spoilers, he will announce on social media before he makes a video about it. Friki has a reddit account which he uses to clarify things about his videos from time to time (he posts in English on there) if you want to follow him directly: https://www.reddit.com/user/therealfrikidoctor/

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Like a photo of Dany on set with a baby bump? No, nothing like that. I can't recall any location shots that showed major actors in costume this year. Lots of set photos, but none showing major characters. HBO did a better job of avoiding those types of spoilers this year, compared to S7. The Tyrion spoiler we got from Frikidoctor is pretty major, but it doesn't tell us much about Dany's fate, or if there is a pregnancy or not. EDIT: Actually, there was that Croatian scene that got filmed. Cersei, Jon and the Mountain were there in costume, shooting a scene. Some people think Dany was there too, but there are no verifiable photos of her there. I can't think of any other times characters got photographed while in costume and filming a scene for S8, off the top of my head.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    It brought to my mind Quenton Hightower from the books. Hightower closed the gates of Oldtown when the grey plague was spreading and burned every ship, and afterwards the people killed him for it. Pycelle says his actions are what stopped the plague from spreading though. He said Hightower was a man who would do what was necessary, like Tywin. If the choice is between killing the people of KL, or letting them join the AOTD, I could totally see Tyrion doing the Tywin thing in that situation...book Tyrion, anyway. As usual, I don't know what the hell D&D have been doing with show Tyrion. They knew the whole time he was ending this way, and still chose to whitewash the shit out of him.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Frikidoctor and Javi did a video where Javi revealed his spoiler finally. Link The video is in Spanish, This comment seems to translate it pretty thoroughly: Link. The spoiler is that Peter's last scene that he filmed (not Tyrion's last scene) is one where he walked through the streets of KL with Jon and Davos after it has been burned and there are corpses everywhere. Javi also confirmed Friki's spoiler that Tyrion is on trial in the Dragonpit (his sources say the same). The Jon/Tyrion/Davos scene is before Tyrion's trial. Javi says Tyrion is responsible for all the dead bodies in KL, and that is why he's on trial. The people of KL wanted to get out of the city, but they could not. Tyrion's motive was to stop them from becoming wights. There are no wight corpses inside the capital. Which I guess means the WWs don't actually get inside KL? And we can infer from the Jon/Tyrion/Davos scene that Jon survives the KL battle. There are other points from the vid, but as usual the Friki vid has both spoilers and speculation in it, so it's unclear what else is meant to be a spoiler in the vid.
  7. George confirmed it was official a couple years ago (with the caveat that it could change): Link That would be the US/UK cover though. This cover artist does the Spanish cover, which is usually different than the US/UK one. For Dance, he drew Dany riding Drogon in the dragonpit. for instance. He likes to draw an actual scene from the book for his cover, even if it's a spoiler. And he hinted in a twitter reply that the cover he just did for George is "spoilerly", Plus he retweeted someone who replied to him that they had a weird dream about Winds. The publishing house he works for in Spain doesn't do Wild Cards books, so that's probably not it either. All in all, I am leaning about 80% towards him teasing a Winds cover. But there is also a chance he did a new cover from some anniversary issue of one of the first 3 books I suppose....although I don't know why he would say this new cover is "spoilery" in that case, since it would be for a 20 or so year old book. You'd have to be one hell of a prick troll to do that. I don't know this guy well enough to rule that out though. Even if it is a Winds cover, it doesn't necessarily mean the book is going to be finished soon. The Spanish publisher could have ordered it without even asking George, or George could only think he close to done, like in 2015, and we all know how that turned out.
  8. Reddit is getting hyped because they think the Spanish cover artist just hinted he completed the Winds cover: https://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comments/9pmf17/spoilers_extended_grrms_spanish_asoiaf_cover/?st=jngi8ktc&sh=6b23f8ce I don't know what to think about it. I'm too jaded to feel hype about Winds at this point. Been burned too many times.

    Which interview did she say this in? I don't see it in the Vanity Fair one.

    That was just a theory of his I believe, not a concrete spoiler. Friki doesn't know why the trial is being conducted by that particular group of characters, or why Jon/Dany are not there, so he was theorizing the 'judges' make up a new government for Westeros, and that is why they are leading the trial. Friki mixes both spoilers and theories into his videos, and since he does them in Spanish, 'which is which' can get confused in the translation. Happens a lot with his stuff. Those of us who don't speak Spanish are at the mercy of translators to accurately get what Friki is saying.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Friki and the guy who runs Los Siete Reinos (like the Spanish Watchers on the Wall), Javi, were supposed to do an event together at a comic store on October 6. They said Javi has a new spoiler to reveal. But they canceled the event today. Friki had a personal issue. They said they would reschedule it, but haven't announced when yet. He hasn't shut up. He posts on reddit and twitter. He still says his spoiler is real. His last Youtube video was him discussing the theories his viewers came up with to explain his spoilers, like why Jon and Dany aren't at the dragonpit. Just discussing theories, no new spoilers. It's unclear if Friki will offer up any new info, or if he's revealed everything he's got already. Javi from Los Siete Reinos does have a new spoiler to drop it seems. He was going to reveal it on the 6th, but they've rescheduled. The only thing they've said about Javi's spoiler is that it is "new". So it could relate to Friki's Tyrion spoiler, or it could be something completely different.

    The vid was in Spanish, which I don't speak, so I was going off one of the translations on Freefolk. That translation used the phrase "they will be splited" to describe what Friki said. That implied a new political system to me. Maybe the translator got it wrong. Rereading my post, I did seem to imply they were holding a great council as well as conducting Tyrion's trial though, and that wasn't from the translation. My mistake. EDIT: Actually, there is another translation thread on Freefolk that does say Friki speculates that the meeting in the Dragonpit serves to distribute power in Westeros in addition to conducting Tyrion's trial. The two threads: Link1 and Link2

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Friki put out another vid. He says that Yara is also at Tyrion's trial. So I guess that could be mean Theon is dead. Yara being alive would also likely mean Theon is not ruling the Iron Islands in the end, even if he lives. He also confirmed the actor in the golden armor (or now he says it may be a golden "outfit" like Oberyn used to wear) is named Toby Osbourne. He thinks he is playing a Dornish character, not a Golden Company man, but that is just his speculation. He also said the second unknown actor is wearing green, and he thinks it may be Howland Reed, but again, that's just his speculation. I don't think he mentioned the man was wearing green in his other vid though, so that bit is new. And he speculates that this gathering may be dividing up Westeros into a new political system instead of just conducting Tyrion's trial.

    Mirri did not actually tell Dany she could not have children in S1, yet in S7 Dany acted as though she did. So D&D have retconned plotlines like this before, pretending past lines were in the show when they actually were not. Even still, I'm also having doubts. I trust that Friki trusts his source, he would not knowingly lie, but I do think it's possible his source is lying to him. HBO certainly did a great job at stopping leaks this year after the shit show that was S7. Kudos to them.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Some people on Reddit are pointing out that Tyrion never actually said the line "I never bet against my family" in the show. I've been searching Youtube clips of Tyrion/Cat scenes, and I can't find one where he says it. D&D are perfectly capable of retconning and just pretending like Tyrion actually said it in the past, so it doesn't disprove Friki...but it does give me some pause as to the veracity of Friki's leaks.
