In AdS/CFT, the HRT prescription relates the entanglement entropy of a region of a CFT to the area of an extremal surface in the dual AdS spacetime.  But there exists a class of spacetimes in which the HRT prescription is ill-defined.  These spacetimes consist of planar AdS wormholes containing an inflating region.  I will introduce these so-called AdS-dS-wormholes, discuss how the HRT prescription fails in them, and suggest possible modifications to remedy the problem.
