Portland, OR – After spending her Sunday watching the first three episodes of Game of Thrones, marketing manager Jenna Schmidt has politely yet sternly requested that no one else at work discuss any of single detail from the award-winning show’s series finale. Schmidt also demanded that no one discuss anything from the fourth episode on, though she was quick to reassure coworkers that she intends to pick right back up as soon as her boyfriend finishes his six-month Greenpeace tour.
“You guys, I don’t know how to describe how good this show is,” Schmidt said. “I consider it to be more of an experience than a show, which is why it’s important that I share it with Evan when he gets back from Puerto Rico.”
Ross Becker, the office’s largest Game of Thrones enthusiast, has found himself struggling with mixed emotions after Schmidt declared a moratorium on any discussion about the show.
“On the one hand, the end of Game of Thrones has been the most important moment I’ve looked forward to for the past eight years, and I got married and had twins in the past two years,” said Becker. “But on the other, how can I deprive anyone of discovering on their own such great moments as the Red Wedding, or all the cool dragon stuff?”
As of press time, Schmidt’s coworkers were seen struggling to not unload eight seasons’ worth of spoilers after she predicted Ned Stark would rise to power by the end of Game of Thrones.
