The season finale of “Game of Thrones” presents a long-awaited meeting. And “Florence Foster Jenkins” arrives on Amazon and Hulu.

What’s on TV

GAME OF THRONES 9 p.m. on HBO; also on HBO streaming platforms. Fans have been anticipating this season finale with a host of questions after last week’s episode. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) led his gutsy Brotherhood group beyond the wall, where they captured a wight and faced a zombie army. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) got her first glimpse of the formidable creatures as she saved the living, yet lost one of her dragons in the process. The Dragon Queen and the King of the North then shared a moment during which sexual tensions reached a new high. This episode, the longest yet, will finally bring Daenerys and Jon to King’s Landing, where they will present the wight in an attempt to persuade Cersei (Lena Headey) to fight the dead together.

TWIN PEAKS 8 p.m. on Showtime; also streaming on Amazon. The revival of the 1990 cult drama series by David Lynch and Mark Frost is nearing the end of its third part. Unlike the original, this iteration takes place in several locations rather than just the titular fictional Washington town. “Even after nearly three decades,” James Poniewozik wrote in The New York Times, “Mr. Lynch’s visual imagination remains inimitable.”

THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN 8 p.m. on IFC; also on iTunes and Amazon. It’s hard not to root for Steve Carell in this 2005 comedy. In addition to writing the screenplay with the film’s director, Judd Apatow, Mr. Carell stars as Andy, a middle-aged man who’s dragged from one awkward situation to another by his co-workers as they try to help him lose his virginity.

AMERICAN MONSTER 11 p.m. on Investigation Discovery. This true-crime series reveals how seemingly innocent Average Joes suddenly become murderers. This episode tells the harrowing tale of a California mother who finds her young children and husband stabbed to death in their home.

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS on iTunes, Amazon and Hulu. Meryl Streep stars as a delusional New York heiress in this biographical comedy drama. Florence’s lifelong dream is to perform in Carnegie Hall, despite her dreadful singing voice. She enrolls in singing lessons to no avail, but her partner (Hugh Grant) keeps up a charade of improvement. When her wealth, rather than talent, finally lands her a night at Carnegie, she puts on an abysmal, unforgettable concert.
