Turns out, there were two major deaths on the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere.

Not only did Arya recover her beloved sword after plunging it into the neck of Polliver, but the episode itself totally killed HBO Go.

Much to the extreme chagrin of fan around the nation, the return episode of this epic drama crashed the network's online service.

In response to many users receiving a “fatal error” message at a most inopportune time, HBO released the following statement:

"HBO Go did experience issues due to overwhelming demand around the premiere of Game of Thrones. The service has returned to several platforms and we are working hard towards full recovery, which we expect soon."

HBO Go previously had difficulty during the True Detective finale last month, causing many to wonder if it was designed by the same folks behind

"Dear HBO go servers. Fix yourselves or I swear to God I'll tweet every spoiler I know about game of thrones," wrote one Twitter user, echoing the sentiment of millions aroun the globe.
