Game of Thrones is a show that features so many twists and turns each week that spoilers large and small cannot be ignored once an episode airs. One unlucky soul out there hasn’t been able to find a way to avoid being spoiled, and he's turned online for help. His former girlfriend was so incensed by his cheating on her that she’s resorted to spoiling him on Game of Thrones each week. He revealed his sob story on Reddit to ask for advice.
I cheated on my ex during our relationship and she found out shortly after we broke up. She’s blocked me on everything, but briefly unblocks me every Monday to send me Game of Thrones spoilers before I can watch it. How can I get her to stop?
The man's request on Reddit has since been taken down, but luckily for those of us whose sympathies for his plight only go so far, the Internet is forever. The story was captured before it could be deleted and has been posted for posterity on Twitter. Now, the world can read the tragic tale of the two-timed woman who is spoiling Game of Thrones for the guy who cheated on her with multiple partners.
I can't offer too much sympathy for the cheating ex-boyfriend in this case, but it’s hard not to be a little bit concerned for him that he hasn’t been able to find a solution for the weekly spoilers. Couldn’t he just…block her on all of their mutual social media outlets? Or not read the messages that he suspects contain spoilers? Or at least put off reading them until after he’s watched the episode? Unless she’s warging into his body a la Bran into Hodor and forcing him to do her bidding, she can’t actually be making him read the spoilers. The ex-girlfriend is responsible for fooling him once into reading spoilers, but he clearly hasn't heard the old adage of “fool me twice, shame on me.”
I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, so I would normally sympathize with any person being deliberately spoiled against his or her will. Given the circumstances, however, I pretty much want to high-five the ex-girlfriend for coming up with a creative form of revenge. Just as her former flame can’t un-cheat on her, he can’t un-see those spoilers. Something tells me that she would last a lot longer in the game of thrones than he would.
Assuming that she managed to trick him into reading details about the latest installment, the man has officially been spoiled for some big plot points. It was an exciting episode for the Stark kids that even featured some major forward movement for Bran, who has been stuck under a tree for a season and a half. The ex-boyfriend is going to have to find a way to tune in to watch live – or just stop going online to look at what he knows are spoilers – if he wants to see for himself what happens next now that characters are on the move.
Game of Thrones airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. To see what else you’ll be able to catch on the small screen, check out our schedule of summer TV premiere dates.
