Let's start here: Anyone who even casually watches Game of Thrones knows the agony that is waiting from Sunday to Sunday to find out what happens on the next episode; well, it seems like HBO Spain fixed that problem for us this week by releasing a Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 leak online. This time, however, no hackers were involved.

HBO acknowledged the hack earlier this summer. In a letter included with its "second wave" info dump, the hackers said it took them six months to breach HBO's system and that the network was its 17th target.

In addition to "Curb", tonight's episode of "Insecure" was also leaked, along with episodes of "Ballers" and new series, "The Deuce" starring James Franco (scheduled to premiere September 10) and "Barry", the Bill Hader comedy set for a January 2018 debut.
