Is Game of Thrones New Tonight, May 25, 2014?

Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) is going to face off against The Mountain (Thor Bjornsson) in a fight for Tyrion Lannister's (Peter Dinklage) life on Season 4, Episode 8 (“The Mountain and the Viper”) — but you're going to have to wait until next week to see it happen, because there's no new episode tonight, May 25, 2014.

Why not? Presumably because it's labor day weekend, and HBO doesn't want to risk losing viewers to BBQs and family vacations. Especially not for what promises to be one of the most epic episodes of the season!

Though if you'd rather watch TV, don't worry, HBO's got your back: tonight at 9 p.m. HBO will premiere their latest TV movie, The Normal Heart. It's not exactly Game of Thrones, but this adaptation of Larry Kramer Tony-winning play about the early days of the AIDs epidemic promises to be fantastic.

Want to know more about what to expect from Episode 8 when it does air next week? Here's the official synopsis: "Unexpected visitors arrive in Mole’s Town; Littlefinger’s motives are questioned; Ramsay tries to prove himself to his father; Tyrion’s fate is decided."

Catch the next episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday, June 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
