(Disclaimer: TheWrap has not included any spoilers for the third episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 8 in this post.)
“Game of Thrones” fans flipped out on Sunday as yet another leak hit the internet, this time just hours before Season 8, Episode 3 — a.k.a. the Battle of Winterfell — debuts at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
Photos first shared on Reddit, which then made their way to Twitter, show several “GoT” characters participating in the big fight at the Starks’ ancestral home, and many fans who stumbled across the unofficial grabs on social media were not amused.
“Trying to make sense of all these Reddit leaks like…” one tweeted. “Another #GameOfThrones leak. It’s becoming a Sunday tradition now,” another wrote.
TheWrap has not linked to the Reddit posts or photos in this story, but has seen the pictures making their rounds on Twitter and verified their authenticity during the East Coast airing of the episode. So we can assure you the night is dark and full of possible spoilers.
This marks the third leak “Game of Thrones” has suffered in its eighth and final season — one per week since it premiered on April 14. Episode 801 was available via DirecTV Now four hours ahead of its scheduled debut on HBO and last week, and Episode 802 was posted on Amazon Prime Video in Germany early Sunday morning.
HBO did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on tonight’s leak.

“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
