Game of Thrones season 7 has been the most difficult season for die-hard fans. Plagued with spoilers from every corner of the Internet, HBO is fighting a streak of cyber attacks. Here’s how you can officially watch Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6 online.
The fans who stayed away from social media to avoid all the spoilers and leaks from Game of Thrones season 7 can finally return online. Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6 officially airs tonight! The penultimate episode of the season is going to keep us at the edge of our seats. Forget leaks and sneaky live streams! Let’s give HBO their due credit for the greatest show on TV, by watching it the right way! Here’s how you can live stream Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6 online.
What Time Does Game of Thrones Come on Tonight?
Game of Thrones season 7 airs every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. EST and all you have to do is tune in to HBO to watch the show. The latest episode, “Beyond the Wall” airs tonight. It is directed by Alan Taylor who last worked on the season 2 finale, “Valar Morghulis.” Tonight’s episode will be the longest one yet, well over 70 minutes, which means more action! The record for the longest episode of the series will be broken by next week’s season finale.
“Beyond the Wall” is an appropriately titled episode, considering where we left at episode 5’s “Eastwatch.” Jon Snow has gathered the most badass group of heroes in Westeros: Greyscale-to-friendzone Jorah, no-more-rowing Gendry, Tormund; who is looking for his knight in shining armor (a.k.a. Brienne), reformed chicken-lover The Hound, should-be-dead Beric, Thoros and his top-knot. This A-Team, S Club 7, Oceans Eleven, or whatever you want to call them are treading the snowy terrains beyond the Wall to get one living undead to Cersei.
Half the fandom couldn’t resist and caved into the pressure of the leaks that made it online, after HBO Spain accidentally released episode 6. While few noble souls have resisted spoiling it for those who want to wait for the episode to actually air, some couldn’t resist spilling the deets! The Internet became a danger zone for some GoT fans who want to give the show’s creators the loyal viewership it deserves. But resist no more! Tonight, episode 6 airs in it’s true time slot and those who don’t have access to a TV can watch it online from the true source.

Catch Up: “Beyond the Wall”
Inevitable spoilers from the leaked episode 6 have made it online. From the episode preview, we already know that Jon and the guys are not going to have it easy beyond the Wall. Their White Walker hunting expedition turns deadly when the Night King arrives and at least one of the Westeros Seven don’t make it out alive.
Ignoring the spoilers online, the official episode stills disclosed by HBO keep us at the edge of our seats. While the White Walker A-Team is shown navigating the snowy terrain, nearby in Winterfell, something is up. Sansa is seen reading a letter, with Brienne standing on guard close by. The letter could be related to Cersei or Littlefinger, and Brienne wants to make sure Sansa doesn’t make any hasty decisions.
Speaking of Littlefinger, he’s playing ghost whisperer to Sansa. He continues to plant ideas in the new Lady Stark’s mind against Arya. Similarly, Arya is beginning to show hostility to Sansa after that letter Baelish planted. The released stills show Arya and Sansa visibly tense in a conversation.
I bet Baelish is the one leaking these episodes. Bastard.

On a celebratory note for Jon and Dany fans, the Mother of Dragons and her children are photographed on a cliff with Tyrion and Dany is sporting an outfit unlike the one she has been wearing since stepping in Dragonstone. The white outfit has been seen in a few spoiler images online and it looks warmer than her usual attire, hinting that she’s heading some place colder, perhaps beyond the Wall? We hope it’s true because we certainly think Jon needs some rescuing!
Enough dodging spoilers! Time to watch Game of Thrones season 7, episode 6 “Beyond the Wall” tonight at 9:00 p.m. EST on HBO. and pray that episode 7 doesn’t get leaked before it airs!
