The second episode of season two was briefly available today on HBO GO in the Netherlands and Poland, but has since been removed. I reached out to HBO about the reports we had heard of these territories claiming they will be airing every episode of season two a week early and they confirmed that that will not happen. The episodes will continue to air in the US first and then on the foreign subsidiaries sometime thereafter.
Winter Is Coming: Crisis averted! I’m going to go ahead and close down the previous early reaction thread, since it was obviously not HBO’s intention to have this episode out there at this time. Please wait until Sunday before engaging in any further discussion about episode 12. Thanks!
