Credible S8 Plot Outline?

The author of this youtube channel (Fire and Blood) claims that someone sent him/her this plot outline in August 2017. It lines up *very* well with production photos available later. He/she adds that the "leak" guaranteed accuracy because the source was himself/herself:

Of course, the channel author may have published a fanfiction version based on casting calls, etc.

What do YOU think?

Sounds not too bad and to be honest if this was the plot of the last season, I'd be quite happy with it...but:

1) I think this ending is definitely not bittersweet enough for a GRRM approved final :)
2) I am pretty sure I read somewhere that Edmure was not returning...

What do you guys think??

I have seen most of the video. I have also seen the videos by Talking Thrones. The majority of the plot would make sense, however it all seems guess work and based on leaks. There are also inconsistencies.

I agree also that it is not a bitter enough ending.

It sounds good and matches a lot of other leaks and set pictures. But....

George Martin said he wasn't on set this year, yet according to this leak he is in the final season?

This is a happy ending, yet some cast members indicated the fans wouldn't like the ending and specifically Emilia winced when asked about this.

George Martin loved the LOTR ending...not for Sauron part...but for the Shire. He also said it would be bittersweet. This is not bittersweet. I suspect George will end the Night King/Sauron early on. Frodo/Jon return to the Shire/King's Landing to that Saruman/Euron/Cersi is still causing problem. They defeat the protagonist but at great cost. I think Jon and Drogon likely die in the finale in the dragonpit when Drogon accidentally sets off the wildfire there as other leaks suggest. I think Dany dies in childbirth, but her twins survive and are raised by Tyrion who becomes the new king.

The best lies have a lot of truth to them. I suspect this is an intentional leak by a junior writer of the production crew with just enough exact quotes and rough outline points to make fans believe it...until the end. It is likely solely designed to protect the final episode and plot twists.
