Game of Thrones season eight, episode four for the moment is titled GOT 71 and will air tonight (Sunday, May 5) on HBO at 9pm Eastern Standard Time. The episode will be simulcast in the UK, meaning UK fans can catch Game of Thrones episode four at 2am on Monday morning (May, 6) on Sky Atlantic. Sky Atlantic will also replay the episode at 9pm on Monday evening. The fourth episode of the final season will pick up from the battle of Winterfell which was called The Long Night.
What is GOT 71 called?
Unfortunately, broadcasters HBO and Sky Atlantic do not release the episode titles of Game of Thrones season eight until after the episode has aired.
This is so the plot of the final season can be kept under wraps and there will be no major spoilers for fans.
Sky and HBO told Express.co.uk: “HBO is only confirming the episode titles after each episode has aired (after Sunday 9pm EST) so that will be when we can confirm titles.”
Here’s a list of the episode titles we know so far for the final season:
- Episode One: Winterfell
- Episode Two: A Knight of Seven Kingdoms
- Episode Three: The Long Night
- Episode Four: Game of Thrones 71 (May 5)
- Episode Five: Game of Thrones 72 (May 12)
- Episode Six: Game of Thrones 73 (May 19)
This article will be updated as soon as the official episode names are announced by HBO.

WHAT TIME DOES GOT SEASON 8, EPISODE 4 START?
What will happen in GoT 71?
Game of Thrones fans will not need to worry about the next episode not being as exciting as episode three which hosted the battle of Winterfell.
Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow told Entertainment Weekly revealed that episode four is one of his favourite episodes in the final series.
He said: “One of my favourite episodes is four because the characters have seemingly got what they needed. The world is safe now. They’re celebrating and saying goodbye to lost friends. But as an audience you’re going, ‘This is only episode 4, something’s going to happen.’
“And that’s the cool thing because I think the characters are aware of this as well. There’s something twisted and uncomfortable about it. It’s so Shakespearian.”
HOW LONG IS GOT 71?
Episode four will see the fantasy drama move to Kings Landing, as Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke) sets her eyes on the Iron Throne by taking on Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and The Golden Company.
You can watch the 40-second trailer for the upcoming episode above.
In the trailer, Targaryen ships can be seen approaching Kings Landing and Daenerys is heard saying: “We have won the great war, now we will win the last war.”
At the end of the trailer, Cersei shows she is a force to be reckoned with, warning her people “We’ll rip her out, root and stem.”
Game of Thrones season 8 airs on HBO in the US on Sundays 9pm ET and on SkyAtlantic and NOW TV in the UK on Mondays at 2am & 9pm BST
