We Now Know The Exact Length of GoT Season 7 Finale
Buckle up, because the Game of Thrones season 7 finale is going to be a long one. 81 minutes long to be exact (the length of a movie, basically).
Season 7's finale, which is set to air August 27th, sets the record for the longest Game of Thrones episode ever, beating last season's finale by a whole 13 minutes. The penultimate episode in the season will also be a record length of 71 minutes.
So, what does this mean? As we know by now, a lot can happen in a matter of minutes in Game of Thrones, a matter of seconds really. The whole Red Wedding scene lasted less than 10 minutes and we lost two Starks (not to mention a Stark baby). The game can shift and the iron throne can change hands in the blink of an eye. We've just been given that much longer.
Think of the longest episode up to this point: the season 6 finale "The Winds of Winter" had so many major moments: Cersei blowing up the Great Sept of Baelor and the Tyrells along with it. Tommen falls to his death. Jon is proclaimed king of the North. And that's only part of the episode.
More screen time for us means more action for our favorite characters and unfortunately their possible demise. We know the show to well by now to expect anything else.
