Three episodes of Game of Thrones have already aired so we're already halfway done with this final season. As we're getting closer to the air date for Game of Throne's fourth episode, we thought we'd help you watch the show live online.

We won't discuss the events of this third episodes, mostly because we're not yet emotionally ready for it given all that's happened, but also since we don't want to spoil it for you if you're still to watch it. We can say, however, that it was super intense and that we're starting to remember why we loved and hated this series at the same time.

The fourth episode of Game of Thrones will air on Sunday, May 5th, at 9 PM ET on HBO. This next episode will be four minutes shorter than the one from last Sunday, running at 1 hour and 18 minutes. It's still not enough to answer all our questions, we're sure, but there's still hope that by the end of it all we'll get all the answers we seek. So, let's see how you can watch the fourth episode of Game of Thrones' final season live online.
