Delhi Metro's ultimate spoiler alert: Use headphones while watching Game of Thrones finale in metro

  • The official DMRC account issued the spoiler alert on Twitter about Game of Thrones season finale
  • Game of Thrones had become the cornerstone of HBO's primetime offerings

New Delhi: Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Monday issued a spoiler alert for "Game of Thrones", urging travellers to use earphones while catching up on the finale episode in the metro. "Game of Thrones" is based on American author George R R Martin's epic fantasy novels, "A Song of Ice and Fire".

After eight seasons and 73 episodes, HBO's long-running smash series, "Game of Thrones", wrapped up on Sunday, with one more shocking demise and an unlikely character named as king.

The last episode of the medieval fantasy based on the novels of George R.R. Martin ran roughly an hour and 20 minutes to conclude the storyline of more than a dozen characters and intertwining plots.

The official DMRC account issued the spoiler alert on Twitter.

"Last stop of the season! Catch up on the Train of Thrones, but don't go spoiling it for others. If you're watching it on the metro, please be sure to use earphones," the post read.

The tweet was accompanied by an animated poster of Sansa Stark, played by Sophie Turner.

"Sansa is catching up on the Train of Thrones she uses headphones. She does not spoil it for others. Be like Sansa," the poster read.

The series had become the cornerstone of HBO's primetime offerings, but its final season was also its most divisive, with both fans and critics finding specific plot twists, particularly the handling of one primary character, troubling.

HBO says the record-breaking final season drew 43 million viewers on average for each episode in the United States alone, an increase of 10 million over Season 7 in 2017.
