No show over the last few years has quite epitomized the ‘SPOILER’ internet debate like ‘Game of Thrones.’ With its large base of book readers who already know all the plot twists, along with the rise of streaming services that allowed people to consume the show as they pleased, the world of Westeros became a microcosm for HOW WE WATCH TV TODAY.
Or some shit. I don’t know. I had the Mountain-Viper fight spoiled for me, because I thought I could wait until Monday night to watch. But I didn’t start the series until 2014 and somehow successfully avoided any news about the Red Wedding. And despite Jon Snow’s death occurring in the books four years before it happened on the show, almost no one I knew had any inkling it would go down.
So, whatever. I think we can all agree getting shit spoiled kind of sucks but it ain’t the worse thing in the world. However, people who intentionally do it for kicks deserve the blade end of Longclaw.
Unless, that is, you are trying to get back at an ex who cheated on you, one who loves Game of Thrones.
That’s fucking earned. Join us in a revenge plot as meticulous and determined as the shit the Lannisters are concocting for the High Sparrow right now.

My ex, we’ll call her Dany, and I were together for nearly a year. We broke up a couple months ago, due to distance and just not being right for each other. The majority of our relationship was long distance, while I worked abroad, and communication was hard.
I had a lot of jealousy issues, due to Dany having a lot of male friends and she’d slept with a lot of guys. I let this get the better of me and I cheated on her with my ex and other girls. She found out shortly after we broke up, and understandably hates me. We had a massive argument after the break up, where I said some nasty things that I regret, and now she doesn’t talk to me or want anything to do with me.
When we are together, Dany introduced me to Game Of Thrones, and I got addicted to it. Unfortunately while abroad, I wasn’t able I watch it live, and usually it would take a while to find a good stream, if at all. The internet out there was bad.
Dany blocked me on every form of communication when we broke up. But, on the Monday after season 6 premiered she unblocked me and I saw I had messages from her. I was excited because I thought maybe she forgave me and we could move on, but it was literally just every spoiler from the first episode.
Since then she spoils the show for me every week. I tried to ask her to stop but she blocks me immediately after she sends the message. I blocked her on whatsapp, but she did it via Facebook. Then the next week it was text. She even borrowed one of our mutual friends phones to do it, and I fell for that. (Our mutual friends are all closer to her and apparently hate me now because of what she’s told them about me). I can’t watch it before she ruins it because I have to wait til my girlfriend (my ex ex) is home from work to watch with her.
I know I didn’t treat her very well but I just want to watch my favourite show again. Is there anyway I can get Dany to stop or make peace so she won’t ruin the show anymore?
TL;DR : 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?
I think that would make even George RR Martin proud. Hell, he should tell her the ending just so she can text it to him.
Now that would be BRUTAL.
