I want to delete an episode from my iPhone so I can watch a different episode (because I took up so much space with music and such). If I do, it won't permanently delete, will it? Will it still be on the iTunes account, but not on this device?

It depends on two things:

  1. If you have a computer or another device set to automatically download purchases, you will have that copy as long as it is online and the download completes successfully.
  2. If your account is in a country that allows TV eposides to be re-downloaded (usually called iTunes in the cloud) you could re-download the episode later as long as the studio doesn't withdraw it from sale or download.
