Watch ‘Game of Thrones’ Online: Season 8 Episode 5

The penultimate episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones at 9/8c is here following last week’s heartbreaking loss of a beloved character. It’s about time a villain met their demise, and tonight’s Season 8 Episode 5 premiere could very well mark that night.

Our top recommendation to watch Game of Thrones online without cable tonight is by signing up for a 7-day free trial of HBO via Amazon Prime. Members can jump straight in to start streaming Game of Thrones episodes after joining the trial.

No cable is required to take advantage of this free HBO offer. The regular HBO price of $14.99 per month will activate once the trial is complete, or cancel anytime before the trial completes.

If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member then simply signup for a free 30-day trial of Prime. You can then add the Prime Channels with HBO free trial on top of it to stream any of the Game of Thrones Season 8 episodes for free.

You can also add HBO as an add-on with a Hulu Live TV subscription. Hulu offers 50 hours of DVR Cloud storage so you can watch Game of Thrones live or save it for later; a great benefit to take advantage of. Sign up for Hulu Live TV to enjoy one of the most popular and fastest growing online streaming services.

Cable and satellite subscriberscan watch Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 online via the HBO Now streaming service that also offers a free trial without the need for a cable or satellite service.

Heavy spoilers for last week’s Game of Thrones follow so please proceed at your own risk.

The brutal beheading of Missandei by the command of Queen Cersei Lannister dealt yet another blow to Daenerys. In two episodes the Khaleesi has lost her army, a second dragon, and now arguably her closest friend.

The fire is lit for the combined forces of Jon and Daenerys to attack King’s Landing and the Golden Army, and I very much expect that battle to go down in Episode 5.

There’s also the matter of Varys and Tyrion discussing high treason against their queen following her recent decisions. Don’t let the seemingly throwaway line during that discussion about someone taking the Iron Throne who doesn’t necessarily want it fade away. Tyrion fits the description to a tee.

We could also see Arya and The Hound arrive in King’s Landing tonight. If that happens, the destined battle between The Hound and Ser Gregor will finally go down.
