Tonight is the beginning of the end of Game of Thrones‘ final season. Season 8 Episode 5 is the penultimate episode, and next week will be the finale. How long will tonight’s be? Read on for details and the schedule for the last part of the season.
Tonight’s episode is 1 hour and 22 minutes long, but the runtime is listed as 1 hour and 20 minutes total in length (aka 80 minutes.) That’s quite a bit longer than Episodes 1 and 2 of Season 8, and two minutes longer than last week’s episode, The Last of the Starks. However, it’s two minutes shorter than the longest episode of the season, which featured the Battle of Winterfell in Episode 3’s The Long Night. This episode and next week’s finale will be the same length, so don’t be disappointed if you were expecting the finale to be the longest episode of the season. That crowning achievement went to Episode 3.
According to the show’s TV listings, tonight’s episode will start at 9 p.m. Eastern and end at 10:22 p.m. Eastern (aka 8 p.m Central to 9:22 p.m. Central.) Technically, the runtime for tonight is 80 minutes long, so the credits and trailer will probably add an extra two minutes to the schedule.
As of the time of publication, there are no official titles yet for tonight’s episode. We probably won’t have a title until the episode finishes airing. TV Guide currently lists the synopsis for tonight as being: “The Night King finally breaches the Wall alongside a full-grown dragon under his command; the new alliances and betrayals will determine the fate of everyone in Westeros.” This has obviously been the same synopsis that TV Guide has run for every episode of Season 8, so it’s not revealing anything new and it’s pretty outdated. Tonight’s episode number is Episode 72.
Episode 3 was directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who also directed The Gift, Hardhome, and Battle of the Bastards. Last week’s Episode 4 was directed by David Nutter, who directed Episodes 1 and 2. Tonight’s episode will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik again, which is why many people are predicting a big battle between Jon Snow and Dany’s armies versus Cersei and the Golden Company. Episode 6, the finale, will be directed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Be sure to check back on this author’s page from time to time, as I’ll be posting theories and discussions about the episode after it airs.
The longest episode in Season 6 was the Season 6 finale, Winds of Winter, which clocked in for 68 minutes. The Season 7 finale was much longer: 79 minutes and 43 seconds. Last week’s episode was the longest episode for Game of Thrones yet, a little more than 2 minutes longer than the Season 7 finale. Tonight’s episode might be shorter than Episode 3 of this season, but it’s still longer than the Season 6 or Season 7 finales. This helps to put things in perspective, so we don’t take for granted the episode lengths. We’re actually getting some great, nearly movie-length episodes, even though the season itself is shorter than most fans would prefer.

The last episodes of Game of Thrones will no doubt be a popular option for downloads, including tonight’s Season 8 Episode 5. Many viewers try to find torrents of the episode, but others look for legal streaming and download options. The premiere of Season 8 was illegally downloaded 54 million times, with the biggest offenders coming from India, China, and the U.S. But what if you’re looking for a legal download of Season 8 Episode 5? Do you have any options? Your best option for legally downloaded the episode is iTunes, but downloads are only currently available in limited countries.
If you want to download Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 legally, you don’t have a lot of options. Most people who want to download a show legally will either buy it on iTunes or on Amazon. But for Game of Thrones in the United States, neither is an option. So you’ll need a friend who lives in another country to buy it on iTunes legally for you, if you’re really in need of a downloaded version.
In the United States, iTunes does not have Game of Thrones Season 8 even listed yet, although all previous seasons are available for purchase. If you search for Game of Thrones Season 8 on iTunes in the U.S., you might think you’ve found it until you realize that you’re only seeing listings for the show’s official podcasts, including an hour-long podcast that discusses each episode after it airs. But the Season 8 episodes themselves aren’t available yet in the U.S. In many countries including the U.S., iTunes won’t release new Game of Thrones episodes until after the season has ended.
