Last week we had some pretty crazy reveals on Game of Thrones. So of course, you’ll want to watch tonight’s episode while it airs, so you don’t get spoiled from any of the big reveals. If you’re looking for a live stream of Game of Thrones episode 7, “The Broken Man,” we’re listing a number of free options below, including two options for people who don’t have cable or satellite subscriptions. The seventh episode of season six will air at 9 p.m. Eastern tonight, June 5 on HBO. The recap show, After the Thrones, will be available on Monday.

Last week we were treated to a few reveals, including finding out the identity of the man who helped Bran and Meera escape from the White Walkers. (But why did he want Bran to drink that blood? Was there a deeper meaning to that scene) We also all got more annoyed with Tommen and are still trying to interpret Bran’s visions. Meanwhile, fans are hoping that certain Riverrun rumors might be true. 

Here’s a rundown of the streaming options available for to watch tonight’s episode:

Unfortunately, if you picked up the HBO NOW free trial for the premiere of Game of Thrones, that free trial is now expired. You’ll have to start paying $14.99 a month to keep your access to the show.
