HBO has announced the title of this Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, while it also confirmed the episode’s runtime–and it’s a long one.
The Season 7 finale is titled “The Dragon and the Wolf,” a name that may give fans a lot to think about. Hmmm. The length is 79 minutes and 43 seconds, which is the longest in the history of the acclaimed HBO fantasy show, according to Deadline. That’s a full 10 minutes longer than the previous longest-ever episode, the Season 6 finale, which clocked in at 69 minutes, according to BusinessInsider.
The Dragon and the Wolf airs on Sunday, August 27, at 9 PM. You can watch the first teaser trailer right here.
Last week’s episode, “Beyond the Wall,” contained a number of standout moments and big scenes that will have a lasting impact on the overall story. GameSpot’s Michael Rougeau argues that the show has now “truly stopped making sense.”
