Game of Thrones season eight to have multiple endings to avoid leaks

The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones", will be filmed across many different countries like Northern Ireland, Spain, Croatia, and Iceland.

From Arya's opening scene of the Red Wedding Part II to Viserion's death and resurrection, to the final scene, which was then christened "El Boatsex", almost every last detail of Season 7 was leaked, all the way back in October of previous year.

The young boy's character meanwhile is being speculated to be flashbacks of Littlefinger, Varys, or Gendry though how they are relevant to the storyline of the final "Game of Thrones" episodes in rather vague. So they're going to shoot multiple versions so that there's no real definitive answer until the end. To throw such potential hackers off their game, the makers of the HBO series have made a decision to film multiple endings of the eighth and final season. "They know it is going to get leaked", the Bond University director of film and television said.

According to a report from anti-piracy firm MUSO, the episodes of "Game of Thrones" season seven each averaged 14.7 billion illegal views through September 3. Morning Call had an interview with HBO's president of programming where he discusses this latest news.

No one in the production is going to know what the real ending is. AMC has used this ploy for "Breaking Bad", while GoT maker HBO has also tried it while filming "The Sopranos", and even as far back as "Dallas" in 1980. Plenty of heroes have valid claims to the Iron Throne and lots of villains could snatch it away.

Within the last few seasons of HBO's hit show Game of Thrones, there have been multiple leaks online.

The plot points were spoiled for millions of fans after press copies of the first five episodes appeared on torrent websites in 2015.

While this is their way of combating hackers (who jeopardised the seventh season with appalling leaks), would this newfound fix outwit cybercriminals?
