THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS: Some Fool Leaked the Last 3 Episodes of “Power” to Facebook Last Night
09.08.17

See… this is why we can’t have nice things!

Some idiot thought it would be cool to hack into Starz’ media room website—where they store advanced screener episodes for us bloggers/writers to watch so that we can draft our recaps early—and leak the remaining three episodes of Power’s 4th season on Facebook.

Late Tuesday night (Aug. 8), social media was LIT with news that Episodes 8, 9 and 10 of Power Season 4 had been leaked. At first, we didn’t believe it, but after seeing it for ourselves … yup, some ignant fool really did leak the episodes, and now the show has been ruined.

Making matters even worse? The quality of the leak is TERRIBLE. The episodes were recorded with a phone while being played back on a phone with a cracked screen. And, as TorrentFreak points out, at one point, the imbecile who leaked the footage turns the camera around and shows his own face:

If this whole scenario isn’t crazy enough, the ‘cammer’ polishes off his virtuoso performance by turning the ‘cam’ phone around and recording his own face for several seconds. To save his embarrassment we won’t publish an image here but needless to say, he is extremely easy to identify, as is his Facebook page, where the content seems to have first appeared.

Check out some of social medias reactions to the ‘Power’ leak below:

Starz and the always outspoken 50 Cent have not officially responded to the leak just yet, but their press site (mediaroom.starz.com) has been down since last night. We don’t know if it was taken down by Starz or the hackers, but regardless, it’s not working.

If you’re looking for the episodes because you just can’t wait for the plot to unfold over the next three weeks, there are still some videos available on Facebook, but a lot of them have been removed, and the ones that remain will likely be taken down soon.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Back in 2015, someone leaked FOUR Game of Thrones episodes online, and HBO responded by not sending out advanced screener copies to the media the following year. And we wouldn’t be surprised if Starz does the same.
