The Title for the GAME OF THRONES Season 7 Finale is Revealed

We now have a title and a running time for the season 7 finale of GAME OF THRONES and we’re both excited and sad.

This Sunday is the season 7 finale of Game of Thrones and it feels like the season just started, probably because we’re two episodes less than previous seasons.

Being that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are basically having to write out the episodes themselves instead of relying on George R. R. Martin’s books (as they have now surpassed the timeline of the literary works), they seem to have taken to fast forwarding the scenes and explaining the intricacies of the stories.

Now that’s not necessarily a bad thing, considering the medium itself doesn’t want to allow viewers to get bored with the story, but it’s also walking the fine line of rushing the story. Granted, the talent is amazing and they’ve given enough drama to the scene despite the lack of time allowed to really expand the emotion of it.

Given that, we’re super excited for the title of the finale, which is “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

Wow, that title could mean more than a couple of things, including the connection between Daenerys Tagaryen and Jon Snow, in more ways than one, but we’re not going to talk about that. Although there are other Starks that the title could be referring to, it is likely that they are referencing the two previously mentioned. We know that there’s going to be a meeting of the big players of the series, including Cersei Lannister and Jon, however, the preview for the finale did not show Dany being one of them.

Still, Jon is there and he’s the King in the North, and also one that everyone knows to be a Stark. Needless to say, we can’t assume anything when it comes to this show. It makes it that extra fun to watch. Add to the fact that this particular episode is going to have a running time of 79 minutes and 43 seconds, which will make it the longest single Game of Thrones episode ever.

From how this season has been, we can only expect an explosive season finale, so don’t miss it Sunday at 9pm on HBO!
