'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Plot Spoilers: What Happens in Episode 6

Multiple hackers have targeted Home Box Office by leaking the episodes of their various shows, prime among them Game of Thrones season 7, demanded ransom amounts in several million dollars and hacked their social media accounts.

"Game of Thrones" has had a rough few weaks after a number of episodes were leaked by hackers and HBO Spain accidentally released the unaired sixth episode of the season.

In an email to Mashable, the hackers said that they wanted the attention of HBO executives, who recently offered them $250,000 to buy time, even as episode after episode found its way online without the hackers' help.

The upcoming penultimate episode of season seven of Game of Thrones is titled "Beyond the Wall", which by itself is enough to get the blood pumping. The group "Mr Smith" also sent Mashable screenshots of the official pages on which "HB-OLD is Dying...." was written. "Mr Smith" has given Mashable the credentials to access for almost every HBO social media account.

HBO told Mashable: "We are not in communication with the hacker and we're not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released". You get the scripts a month before we start shooting, or six weeks, and then you know what's going to happen that season.

If you're a lapsed viewer, or just looking to get hyped before the episode airs this evening, Nick's trailer also works as a handy recap to get you up to speed.

In earlier seasons, we'd spend all ten episodes watching characters travel, some not even getting to their destination by the end of the season. But according to the reports and rumors, the length of the episodes will be more.
