Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, revealed that she spoiled the ending of the show for her husband Joe Jonas, and one reddit user has taken a leaf out of her book.
**Spoilers about the season eight finale are ahead, so you’ve been adequately warned, alright?**
Reddit user GOTSpoilerDude took to the social aggregate website to ask if it was wrong to spoil the ending of Game of Thrones – something his girlfriend has been waiting on for almost eight years – because she didn’t organise a special celebration for his birthday.
The redditer posted on the Am I The A**hole subreddit: “My girlfriend and I have been going out for about a year now. Great relationship overall. We've hit a major bump though. Here's what happened:
“So I'm not into Game of Thrones. It looks cool, but I've never gotten into it. My girlfriend is a huge fan though. She's read all of the books and has been watching the series since it came out. It's by far her favorite show. [sic] The Sunday before last was the huge finale. It also happened to be my birthday. Now I'm a huge birthday guy. For her birthday, back in January, I took her out to one of the best restaurants in my city (Seattle). I also got her a necklace with real gold... and it's not like I have a six-figure income either.”
When my birthday came around, guess how she greeted me in the morning: ‘OMG the game of thrones finale is tonight. I'm literally dying!’ Not even a happy birthday to me. It wasn't until we went downstairs that she realised it was my birthday. She made me toast, so that's something, I guess.
Well, I was pretty damn disappointed she had nothing planned for me that day. Not even a gift. She's told me before she's ‘not a birthday person.’
That night, she went to her parents' place to watch the finale with her family. I was pissed at this point, so I went online and found out what happened. Just as the show was going to start, I texted her this: ‘Hey babe, tell me how the show goes! Especially the part where Jon kills Daenerys, the throne is destroyed, and Bran becomes king!’
Needless to say, his girlfriend is angry. “Things have been shaky since,” the man concludes.
Opinions are divided.
Some people thought the girlfriend was in the wrong and he was justified in ruining the finale.
After all, she forgot his birthday.
she literally ditched him on his birthday to go watch a tv show with her family.
One user thought he was “passive aggressive and petty.”
YTA -- you did that stuff for her birthday because you wanted to, not because she wanted you to. If you wanted to do something with her on your birthday, you should have communicated that to her beforehand, or even that day. What you decided to do was passive aggressive and petty, and it's understandable that your gf wants some time apart.
Another defended the girlfriend – just because he likes celebrating birthdays doesn’t mean she does too.
Who's to say she did want to celebrate her birthday? An ex and I had this exact dynamic and while I loved spoiling him on his birthday, we came to realize the ritual was more for my benefit than his and stopped. He doesn't get to force a nice dinner on her that she may not even want and then turn around and get shitty when she doesn't do the same for him.
Some people thought that the girlfriend made a mistake and that he had gone out of his way to hurt her.
She made a mistake, he went out of his way to hurt her.
There were those who thought he was straight up mean
You are childish and shouldn't be in a relationship, the way you are carrying on about your birthday you sound like a 5yr old.
And those who took the chance to lament season eight of the show.
Game of thrones sucks here, the last season was a prolapsed dog intestine of writing.
What do you think?
