    Theon took advantage that Rob had marched south and sacked Winterfell. Once Rob heard about it, he sent part of his army to take it back and with them at the gates Roose Bolton's bastard son knocked Theon out and took him prisoner. Then burned the entire place. Bran, Rickon, Osha, and the giant hid in the crypts.

    HBO Go was a failure last night. At 8pm CDT the site wouldn't let me on. Then at 8:30 I got in, but the quality was terrible. Like watching pixelated nudity, cept for the whole show. So I didn't get to watch last night. Fail.

    I tested the theory last night that it was available around the same time as the first showing on HBO. I went on my iPad around 9:40 PM Eastern and there it was. I let the first few seconds run to see how it looked and it was fine. I was just too tired to watch the complete episode (which I recorded on my DVR). I'll watch that tonight after hockey.

    I have an android tablet and it could view it earlier (about 8:05), but small picture and different servers, quality was slightly better. But I don't want to watch on my 7 inch tablet.

    There was a tweet from HBOGO at 8:37 saying sorry for the difficulties, too much heavy volume.

    That was about 3 minutes before I tried :)

    It was not on HBO OnDemand, which I was hoping for.

    Considering there was only one nude scene in the actual episode, I'd say on balance that's not a fail it's a win. It gave you a version with extra nudity.

    I watched the episode on HBOGO and the video quality was okay (very crisp with no buffering) for me. This was half on Sunday, half on Monday. What was problematic was that the app didn't save my viewing place. Whenever the screen shut off, if I tried to restart watching it restarted at 0:00. I don't remember having that issue with the app the other times I've used it.
