Game of Thrones season 4: Here's why there's no episode this week

Fans will have to wait until next Monday 2 June for the next episode

Game of Thrones fans searching the internet for the latest episode of the fantasy drama series will be disappointed.

There is no show this week due to Memorial Day in the US, a bank holiday that takes place on the last Monday of May to honour the men and women who have died in the country’s armed forces.

Instead, episode eight, “The Mountain and The Viper”, will be shown next week in the UK on Monday 2 June. The episode, which will be directed by Game of Thrones regular Alex Graves, is expected to determine the outcome of Tyrion Lannister’s trial.

Episode nine will debut a week later on Sky Atlantic on Monday 8 June. Entitled “The Watchers on the Wall”, the HBO synopsis states Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch will face a big challenge.


Season four will come to a close in the UK on Monday 16 June with series finale “The Children”, in which Tyrion is due to “see the truth about his situation”.

The official HBO synopsis states: “Circumstances change after an unexpected arrival of the Wall; Dany must face harsh realities; Bran learns more about his destiny; Tyrion sees the truth about his situation”.
