Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies.

Social media is dark and full of terrors spoilers. To avoid spoiling the fun for fans on the west coast and those who have to wait to beg, borrow, or steal an HBO Go password, this season I’m confining my stream-of-consciousness thoughts to this liveblog. Follow along or flee in fear. Here there be spoilers! Catch up on Episode Six, 'Blood of my Blood' over here. ************************** [8:57Pm Edt] - Tonight's episode is called 'The Broken Man' which has to be the vaguest episode title yet, as it could apply to approximately 1,000 characters. Is it Jon? Theon? Tommen? Jaime? Edmure? The Three-Eyed Crow? Benjen? Bran? Jorah? All of them? Probably all of them. The only person it definitely isn't is the Blackfish.
