The sixth season of “Game of Thrones” is going to be coming to an end over the course of the next few weeks, but before we get around to that, apparently HBO is going to continue to fulfill the tradition of having a penultimate episode that is one of the most epic things that they’ve ever done. We’ve seen horrific things happen in these episodes, whether it be the Red Wedding or the death of Ned Stark; we’ve also seen enormous battles, such as in “Blackwater” during the second season.
This season, brace yourself for “The Battle of the Bastards,” the 60-minute installment that is going to chronicle most likely Jon Snow’s attempt to take Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton. Following this, the network has already confirmed that “The Winds of Winter,” which is the finale airing on June 26, will run for 69 minutes. This makes it the longest finales of the show to date, but it makes sense given there is a lot that the show needs to wrap up; not only that, but there are also supposedly only 13 more episodes beyond this.
We don’t think either one of these titles should come as much of a surprise, given that the latter in particular is the title for the upcoming book from George R.R. Martin. We feel like that is a signal more than anything else that the White Walkers are going to further march south, and we will start to see the final episodes of the show be the living versus the dead.
Sunday night’s new episode is entitled “No One,” and rest assured we’ll have more news on it in due time.
