Here's the breakdown again of US vs. UK:

UK Series 1 & 2 = US Season 1 (13 episodes)
UK Series 3 & 4 = US Season 2 (13 episodes)
UK Series 5 & 6 = US Season 3 (13 episodes)

BBC America is right in the middle of Season 3, and tonight they are airing the final episode of what constituted Series 5 in the UK. ITV breaks each filmed batch of 13 episodes up into two installments, and frequently goes for months in the middle with no new episodes; meanwhile BBC America airs each batch of 13 non-stop with no breaks. Hence, next week, the first episode that has NOT aired yet in the UK - which is also the second-half of the two-parter - will actually air in the US first. (The UK air dates for 'Survivor's Guilt" and the other five episodes are still TBA.)

Many networks post brief episode summaries of upcoming eps on their websites; we're talking capsule summaries here, not detailed synopses. It's not uncommon, and the only reason it's notable at all in this case is because due to events in episodes prior, certain aspects of those upcoming summaries constitute major spoilers. (Now, why would BBCA post them taking THAT into consideration? - that's another matter. Either a) they're not paying attention, b) they don't think we're paying that much attention, either, or c) they don't care about those in the audience who are is invested enough to go "Wait... hang on a minute, AAAARGH.")

Thank you! And will you let us know when a "previously unaired anywhere" episode is airing? This poor fangirl is always lost!

Is Survivor's Guilt the two parter with the big thing/cliffhanger? And that is the one that will air in the US first? Next week? (Sorry!)

All the remaining episodes on BBC America (i.e. the next six weeks, AFTER tonight) are unaired in the UK.

"Deal," which is airing TONIGHT (in less than half an hour from right now, actually), is the first half of the two parter. "Survivor's Guilt" picks up after the cliffhanger ending, and will air next week. (And I would imagine, many in the UK will be scrambling to get their hands on it since they have not had closure yet...)
