EPISODE 4 PREMIERE TIME: 9:00 p.m. Eastern (8:00 p.m. Central) on May 5.

In the UK, the show will air at 2 a.m. BST on May 6 on Sky (simultaneously with the U.S. premiere) and then again May 6 at 9 p.m. BST. In France and Germany, it looks like the premiere is at 3 a.m., but you’ll want to double check your time zone to make sure.

By the way, if you watch on HBO NOw or GO in the U.S., you might get to start watching about three minutes before everyone else. The episodes sometimes premiere about 8:57 p.m. Eastern on HBO NOW or GO.

AFTER SHOW SPECIAL: Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan are hosting a Game of Thrones after show that will air on Twitter immediately after each show airs on the East coast. This show is called Talk of Thrones.

PREPARING FOR THE THIRD EPISODE: To get ready for tonight’s episode, you’ll want to watch this preview below.

And here are some teasers that have aired.

Here’s a spoiler-filled review of what happened over the last three weeks.

The first two weeks were focused on character development and growth. Jon Snow rode a dragon in the premiere and found out about his true lineage. In the second episode, he told Dany the truth about who he is and Dany immediately worried about losing her claim to the Iron Throne. Of course, knowing Jon, he’s not really interested in that at all. This didn’t stop Dany from saving Jon when the Night King and Viserion fought him and Rhaegal in Episode 3, hurting Rhaegal pretty bad.

Sansa, meanwhile, had been viewing Dany with a lot of suspicion. But considering what Sansa has been through, it’s understandable. Arya and Gendry finally hooked up, and Missandei and Grey Worm made plans for their lives after the war. They all survived the battle, so their futures are still a possibility. After what happened, I’d imagine that Sansa and Dany might mend their problems with each other. And at the same time, Sansa and Tyrion grew closer during the battle.

But Dany lost Jorah, and she and Drogon mourned Jorah at the end. Theon also gave up his life to try to save Bran, but in the end it was Arya who unexpectedly bested the Night King.

Meanwhile, Cersei hired Bronn to kill Jaime and Tyrion, and we don’t know what he’s up to. Brienne is now a knight, thanks to Jaime. And Tormund is still delivering some much-needed comedic moments.
