GAME OF THRONES: Final Season 6 Episode Titles and Extended Finale Confirmed
Adjust your DVRs, Game of Thrones fans: EW brings word that HBO has confirmed that this year's season six finale will be 69 minutes long, which will be the longest GoT episode yet. Meanwhile, we already know next week's eighth episode is called "No One," but the names of the final two episodes have been released as well. Meet me below the spoiler warning if you want to know what they are.
Everyone gone who doesn't want to potentially be spoiled? OK, good.
Episode 9 is called "Battle of The Bastards," which will contain the biggest battle sequence in TV history as Jon and the forces of the North (and probably the Knights of the Vale) face off against Ramsay Bolton and his men with Winterfell hanging in the balance.
Episode 10 is called "The Winds of Winter," which shares a name with George R.R. Martin's famously unfinished sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire saga. EW claims that a spoilery "leaked" plot synopsis for episode 10 that's been floating around the internet for the past few days is actually fake, but the outlet's chief goal is to keep smooth relationships with the showrunners in order to ensure they keep getting exclusives in upcoming seasons, so I'm not sure anyone can really be trusted about that particular bit of info.
Miguel Sapochnik, who directed last year's outstanding "Hardhome" episode, is at the helm for the last two episodes of this season. That's great news, and makes us look forward to the rest of the season even more than we already were.
