Game of Thrones Deal: 3 Months of Now TV for just £17.99 (Save 25%)

With so many of us still coming to terms with the apocalyptic Battle of Winterfell only two episodes prior, the thought of having to sit through another conflict can seem a bit daunting, especially knowing that some of our favourite Games of Thrones cast members could be making their final appearance on the show.

Right now, people all over the world are taking bets over who will prevail and who will meet their doom. Personally, I hope that Cersei Lannister, the Mountain and Euron Greyjoy make it into the latter category, but Game of Thrones has never been a show to avoid twists and turns.

Regardless of what happens in season 8, episode 5, one thing is for certain – if the episode gets spoiled for you before you watch it, you’ll only have yourself to blame. With so many ways to watch Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5, there’s really no excuse to miss out.

After all, wouldn’t you much rather see the epic antics of Daenerys, Jon Snow and Jaime Lannister for yourself, as opposed to hearing about it second-hand from Dave in accounting? Yeah, I didn’t think so. To avoid all that from happening, you’re already in the right place.
