HBO has dropped a teaser for the second episode of Game of Thrones' eighth and final season which opens with Jaime Lannister in front of Daenerys Targaryen at Winterfell, as the Mother of Dragons confronts for the first time the killer of her father.

If Jon is gonna find out that key piece of information, he'd rather hear it from Sam than anybody else because he knows that Sam is the person who will be doing it for the right reasons and he's not got an agenda. In fact, I even subscribed to the network's Crave-based add-on so that my wife and I could be creeped out by Bran Stark in real-time.

As fans play catch up on Sunday's Thrones premiere - and dive into the five remaining Thrones episodes in the coming weeks - viewership is likely to continue climbing for HBO programming across the board. It was a record night of streaming for HBO overall.

Attackers Actually Able to Read User Emails — Microsoft Hacked
Over the weekend we reported that hackers gained access to Microsoft's web-based email services for a period of three months. In a blog post from April, Microsoft said that it saw an average of 300,000 phishing attempts in February alone.


In addition, te HBO NOW streaming service saw a jump of approximately 50% in viewing when compared to last season's finale and almost doubled (97%) when compared to the seventh season premiere.

The episode topped the 16.1 million who saw the seventh-season premiere and the 16.9 million who watched that season's finale. I personally didn't look at my Twitter feed once during the premiere. Tweeters beware! Spoilers are coming!

"Death. It's got many faces". If the show's final season can manage to top that, then "Game of Thrones" really will be going out on a high. Do you think all of the Stark children will survive the ordeal? Will Arya finally kill The Hound?
