    Oh, sorry. I wondered about that, but then I thought I remembered Cat talking about them being gone and how much she hated Theon.... I must be confusing the 2.

    Hold the iPad right up to your nose, and it will seem just as big as your 46" viewed from a distance: :p

    Or (half-serious here) play it on your iPad with the volume off while you simultaneously watch it on your TV.

    I have Comcast and can't use my Roku to play HBOGO either.

    I can stream it through my son's XBox.

    HBO Go works fine on Android, web, and Roku with my UVerse account.

    Comcast specifically blocks HBOGO on Roku. The Roku would work fine if I had a different cable provider.

    I recall there being some mention of additional tidbits, etc way back when - and then I promptly forgot all about it!!
    Great info, Dan! And now y'all say that airplay works, too? So excited!

    I'm going to give it a go on my re-watch or during next week's ep.

    Sheesh. So Comcast has another aversion besides never letting you NOT see unsubscribed channels?

    They can't abide you using watching else on your television, as with Hulu.

    When that scene started, I thought to myself, "wow, that's some pressure."

    There was deinifitely snickering by the peanut gallery.

    Are you talking about HBO On Demand? HBOGo is an app you download in your computer or phone or tablet, not something provided by a cable co.

    Your cable company, through which you subscribe to HBO, has to support HBOGo in order to be able to log into it.

    I don't think I can get HBO On Demand either, but I was specifically talking about HBOGo.

    This. I've called my cable company a couple of times asking about it and they say they don't offer it and there are currently no pending plans to offer it. :thumbsdown:

    I wonder what the reasoning is for certain cable companies to not offer something like this? People that do receive it, get it free with their HBO service but I wonder if somehow it costs the cable company more to offer it?

    I suspect that HBO (and Showtime, Cinemax, etc) doesn't actually know who subscribes to their channels. You order from your cable company, you pay your cable company, etc and the list of subscribers probably never makes it back to them. So in order for them to know you are a subscriber, your cable company would have to integrate into their system so they can verify your subscription status. Not all cable companies have bothered to integrate their systems with HBO, thus those customers can't use HBOGo

    What was Arya referring to when she made a point of going up to Clegane and asking him whether he remembered the last time he was at that spot?

    It seems pretty apparent that after Dany gets her army of 8000, she's going to lay waste to the whole slave civilization - she's repeatedly expressed her disgust with them and she knows the head guy is a jerk, so I don't think she'll have any qualms about that. But I am worried that the dragon she gave up for the 8000 is somehow going to get caught up in the crossfire (at least in part because they made such a point of her two advisors being against agreeing to give up the dragon), and she'll end up with only 2 dragons at her disposal going forward anyway.

    Not sure, but I think that was the place where he killed the butcher's boy back when the Starks were making their journey to King's Landing.

    Tyrion did say "What kind of an idiot gives an assassin his own blade" or words to that effect during his trial. That, to me, acknowledges his ownership of the knife.

    Even if Littlefinger marries Lysa, her son Robyn(sp) is still master of the Vale I would think. I don't see how Littlefinger would leapfrog Robyn's claims.

    Hmmm ... I barely remember the butcher's boy. No, I take that back - I don't remember the butcher's boy at all.

    Before I forget, I loved Ser Bronn referring to Lord Baelish as "twatbeard." What a perfect description of his scraggly triangular growth. I bet that's not in the book, but that somebody (maybe the guy who plays Bronn or even the guy who plays Baelish himsel) came up with it.
