Game of Thrones Season 8 release date and time Australia
Game of Thrones Season 8 airs on Mondays and begun on 15 April 2019. The next episode to air is Episode 6, which follows on from the divisive The Long Night and the relatively mundane The Last of the Starks and the destructive The Bells. It airs on 20 May 2019 across Australia at the times listed below. After catching up with all the new dynamics and power struggles in the relationships of our favourite characters following the Battle of Winterfell, it was time to start swinging swords again. In Episode 5, the battle came to Cersei, who suddenly looked relatively harmless when the Mother of Dragons lost her mind and destroyed the city (and everyone in it).
Anything could happen in the season and show finale. Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6 needs to wrap-up everything; not just the battle between Jon Snow and his queen, but also the three-eyed raven; what's he up to? And ultimately, who will sit on the Iron Throne?
