The Four People Who Leaked That ‘Game Of Thrones’ Episode Have Been Arrested

Lesson: Even in the real world, you shouldn't mess with Daenerys.

Four people in India were arrested after they allegedly leaked the fourth episode of this season of "Game of Thrones," according to the international news organization Agence France-Presse.

The episode “The Spoils of War”—you know, the one that ends with Daenerys fighting back a Lannister army with one of her dragons—leaked from Star India a few days before it aired earlier this month.

The case was filed by an Indian company that stores and processes "Game of Thrones" episodes for its app.

HBO was also recently hacked by a separate party that is continuing to leak material, including upcoming episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

As Entertainment Weekly pointed out, the leak of this episode apparently didn’t affect ratings -- 10.2 million viewers watched “The Spoils of War,” a new record for the network.
