I really hope they show Arya leaving that camp the next morning and its full of dead Lannister men.

Also broke their web streaming as well. You'd think HBO would have been prepared for that.

She just through killing a bunch of Freys, blaming them for murdering those who came to eat and drink in celebration.
The Lannisters were unarmed and offered her food and drink.
She would be at odds with her convictions if she were to kill them.

I think pretty much every season I've basically done a tour of free 1 month trials, and binged.  It helps that they keep adding new "streaming partners"

This is the first one where I'm caught up, so I'll probably watch what I can of this season on the 1 month trial I started yesterday, and maybe buy the remaining episodes from Amazon... If it comes to that.

I think she'll let those guys go. They are just a bunch of commoners pressed into service. They were super nice to her. I kept expecting the other shoe to drop and for these guys to try to hurt her but they didn't.

She's on a race against the clock to kill Cersei before Danery's forces do. She needs to skip killing nameless Lannister men and hurry the fark up.

Btw. Was Arya's fiancé at the Frey feast? She was technically still promised to one of them when she came of age. Seems like that wedding is off.

HBO Now via my Firebox froze up for a few seconds in the middle, but that was it for me.

She went out of her way to make sure the Frey women and servant girls lived. Partly to tell of what happened, but also because she had no beef with them.

Unless they changed it recently, HBO Now is built on top of the MLB streaming infrastructure. HBO chose them because they have their shiat together when it comes to delivering live TV into millions of homes at once to customers that have zero tolerance for hiccups.

Baseball's like the slowest sport in existence why would it matter if there were hiccups.  You could pause the game for 10 minutes and some people might not notice.

It will taper off next week.  In between breaks everyone forgets they have absolutely no clue wtf is going on.

Seriously though, every one of these pay success stories trouncing network TV brings me joy.  They are all still racing to the bottom with the same tired shows, formats and cheap 'reality' shows while everyone else is upping their game and reaping the rewards.

I don't think the big boys like HBO will have any issues. Comcast still has to play nice with them to keep their cable subscribers happy, and Comcast will catch holy hell from customers if their Netflix doesn't stream smoothly. The big issues with Net Neutrality will be with the medium sized businesses, where they are just big enough to be seen as a bandwidth hog but not large enough yet to throw their weight around.

Plus in a few years, Elon Musk will be putting up how own low-latency satellite gigabit internet with blackjack and hookers. Traditional ISPs don't want to be on the bad side of consumers when that happens, or they will get Blockbuster'd.

HBO GO on Xbox one worked just fine for me at time of airing (I was maybe 4 minutes behind actual start time after finishing up rewatch of Battle of the Bastards beforehand).

I had no issues with HBONow on AppleTV. Maybe because I streamed it after the normal air time and on the west coast.

And the fact that they went out of their way to show the humanity in that scene.  "I think of my father alone on the boat, I wish I was with him".  "My wife is having our first child, I hope it's a girl?"  "Why?"  "Because girls take care of their old poppas and boys go off to die in some other mans wars".

I still hope she kills them though.

Hell, even TNT and USA have some good quality scripted drama these days. Mr. Robot is a big change from the bad old days of USA producing Airwolf season 4.

They already showed us how Cersei was wondering what happened to the Freys. Now, if they show a trail of dead Lannisters leading from the Riverlands straight to King's Landing, Cersei will flip her shiat. Don't know if they write that well though anymore.

Wasn't it Joffrey who armed the cutthroat with Tyrion/Littlefinger's dagger and paid him to kill Bran with it? Earlier that day Tyrion ordered Joff to pay Bran and his parents a visit after Bran's fall. When Joff refused, Tyrion slapped him a couple times aggravating their already strained relationship. I always figured it was Joff who framed Tyrion.

maybe she just takes one and then continues on with them into King's Landing as the one whose face she took?  But not likely, something stops her and makes her go north. If she kills them all then maybe she's not the Arya we think?  Could that be why Nymeria is growling?  Does Nymeria not like/know her anymore?
