This article contains predictions for the HBO Max series The Staircase (2022) season 1, episode 6.

Read the recaps, reviews and news for The Staircase.

Not as gripping as the previous four episodes, but maybe that’ll change in the final three episodes. Here’s what happened in the fifth episode of The Staircase:

  • Michael is in prison and learns that he has lost his appeal.
  • His family attempts to live their lives following Kathleen’s death, with Todd, particularly, struggling.
  • The documentary about Kathleen’s death/Michael’s trial gets rave reviews.
  • Sophie visits Michael in prison and is almost in tears as she meets him for the first time.

The Staircase (2022) season 1, episode 6 release date/time.

The sixth episode, titled “Red in Tooth and Claw”, is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max on Thursday, May 26th, 2022, at midnight PT. This is the sixth of eight total episodes airing weekly between now and Thursday, June 9th, 2022.

Where to watch

The Staircase will air exclusively on HBO Max. Based on a US subscription, the streaming app will cost $14.99 a month, with a thirty-day free trial for new users. Unfortunately, HBO Max is unavailable in UK regions. However, as NOWTV services provide most of the content available on HBO Max, a NOW Entertainment membership for £9.99 will give you access to The Staircase.


As stated earlier, the fifth episode wasn’t the best, and I hope that the show improves with the last round of episodes. Here are a few predictions of what could occur:

  • Hopefully, Kathleen will feature more in the episode, and we may even start to see more of the “Owl” theory.
  • Sophie will become more central to the story, and she’ll likely start a romantic relationship with Michael.
  • His children will continue to struggle with the aftermath of Kathleen’s death and Michael’s imprisonment. 

You can watch this series with a subscription to HBO Max.
