That's absolutely horrible. It's not the delay so much as it's the shorter season. HBO really should take a que from The Walking Dead. 16 episodes a season just don't split them up. That would be great.

^HBO is not the ones doing this, it's D&D, the show-runners. They told HBO they have about 13 hours left, so HBO is doing what they need to do based on that. They're obviously not going to have MORE episodes than normal in a season, so rather than do the usual 10, they're splitting them up as fairly as possible.

...this is a signature...
