At the end of the last episode, we saw Arya Stark sharing a meal with old friends, Gendry and Hot Pie, as well as new ones, members of the Brotherhood Without Banners. Even though Arya challenges one of them to a quick sword match and loses, the two groups are on good terms. That is until the Hound enters the scene. Entering the bar held captive, the Hound reveals Arya for exactly who she is: a Stark. This doesn't quite sit well with the bar goers.
We hadn't heard much from our favorite khaleesi last episode but in this one we see she has decided to follow through with her purchase. Despite nearly, losing her life to an other-worldly looking scorpion. It's clear that the people of Astapor aren't ordinary.
"Game Of Thrones" season 3 episode 3 won't premiere until 9 pm Eastern, but if that proves to long of a wait, Youtube has you covered. The Song Of Ice and Fire parody, "School Of Thrones" is a fan made version of the series set in a high school. The parody has already released three episodes. See it below:
It was recently reported that Game Of Thrones was the number one pirated series in history. Find out the show's creators' reactions by clicking here or reading below:
Game Of Thrones season 3 episode 1 downloads have shattered online torrent records. According to TorrentFreak, Game Of Thrones season 3 episode 1 was shared 163,088 times on one torrent while 110,303 were utilizing a copy of another. They had this to say on their blog post,
Previously the record for the largest BitTorrent swarm belonged to the season premiere of the TV-show "Heroes" with 144,663 peers. Counting all the different releases it's estimated that the latest Game of Thrones episode has been downloaded over a million times already. Considering the above there is little doubt that Game of Thrones will once again be crowned the most downloaded TV-show of the year.
Despite rampant stealing of the show, Game of Thrones' director isn't bothered much by the piracy. As reported by Forbes, David Petrarca says shows like Game of Thrones thrive on cultural buzz: the more people watching, the better things are for the series overall. George R.R. Martin, the author of "A Song Of Ice And Fire" series the show is based on spoke about piracy in an interview with the Verge back in March.
We are the most pirated show in the world. In a strange way that's a compliment. It's the sort of compliment that you could do without, probably, but it is a compliment nonetheless. I know that a lot of that piracy is taking place in Australia, where for whatever reason they delay the show six months. So people are just anxious to see it. I think we're seeing - we're still right in the midst of a whole new template evolving for television and film entertainment. And the old template, where shows were made in America, and then they were sold to foreign broadcasters who would show them the next week, or the next month, or six months later, or six years later, or whenever they felt like it - that's breaking down. Because it is a global marketplace.
While Game Of Thrones may be the most pirated show in history, HBO seems to understand why this is and isn't too upset about it. It is able to be profitable enough to spend $50 million to make the show so no harm done, we suppose. The company has to know though if it opened up HBO Go to non-cable subscribers they could rake in even more dough. De-coupling the service from cable television would make HBO Go more of a Netflix style service. It make sense that HBO would want more cable subscribers, but the Netflix strategy is a more modern approach that would definitely be profitable. Not to mention reduce piracy (how many people have you heard that pirate House Of Cards).
