I can't afford to purchase HBO so I have to wait til it come out on bluray, hope it doesn't take too long. The suspense is killing me.

HBO go is only $14.99 a month. There is usually a free week or month if you haven't had it before.
Even if you have to pay, get it for the next 2 months, and you will be spending less than what the blu-rays cost, and you won't have to wait.

Or if you have no morality concerns there are sites where it will be streamed either for free or a nominal cost.

This is what I'm doing:

- Standalone Crave TV one month trial starting today - good for 5 episodes
- Standalone HBO Now seven day trial (use VPN) - good for ep. 6

Could work in the US, just use a VPN for Crave TV instead of HBO.

I know Game of Thrones is one of the most pirated shows, but I don't think you should ever encourage piracy just to be able to "see it"

I think you should always support the entertainment you consume legally when possible. And even if Game of Thrones is the only show you're interested in on HBO, $15/month is not expensive. If money is tight, cut out something else like fast food or trips to Starbucks for a few months.

There are so many legal options for entertainment these days that it seems like a waste of time and energy to hunt down these other means that may or may not have a good picture, won't buffer after a few minutes or worst yet bring viruses or leak your IP address to some criminals or worst yet the authorities.

Depends. If, like me, you plan to buy what will be an overpriced (essentially half-season) rip off on Blu Ray, then I'd go free trial or pirate away.

All the premium channels are completely free 3-4 times per year. Either a weekend or entire week. Just binge what's been added since the last freebie. They don't remove anything. I've been able to watch every premium series and every movie released(that I didn't buy) for years absolutely free on demand.
Last night I watched The Meg and Equalizer 2 for free.

We should have started a poll thread for who makes it out alive.

Hell, they might kill off some of the major players starting tonight!

DirecTV Now apparently dropped it early accidentally.

This is not speculation because I haven't seen/heard any spoilers. I've only watched some trailers, but here's what I would like to see this season:

Dany naked one more time
More Bronn. Give him his castle!
Sansa to die. I've hated the character since S1.
Sean Bean cameo in a Bran vision

I'm getting ready to start S7E7 in a few. Rewatched the whole series earlier this year.
Aug 2017 since the last episode!

I originally thought I only had time to rewatch Season 6 and 7, so I did that last weekend. I then was like fuck it... I'll put everything else I watch on hold. Rewatched Seasons 1-5 as well over the last few days and just finished S5E10 now.

I watched the 52 minute Screen Junkies recap of season 1-7 today. It was well edited and concise, but an exhaustive watch. If you need a refresher and have 52 minutes, it’s worth sitting through.

I hope the extra production time gives us stronger writing than last season. It's kind of surreal that it's finally coming to an end.
