‘GoT’ Update: First 2 Episodes Surprisingly Short

In a devastating reveal, Forbes has reported that the first two episode runtimes of Game of Thrones’ newest season are surprisingly short. Or, at least, shorter than we might expect. This is a bit surprising, considering the season will already be shorter than usual: six episodes instead of ten, the length of all the previous seven seasons. The first two episodes will be a mere fifty four minutes and fifty eight minutes each, not even passing an hour in length. While these runtimes are longer than the average episode for television, with all that season eight has to wrap up, the runtimes are shorter than we perhaps expected… and definitely shorter than what we hoped.

Game of Thrones’ final season should chronicle the final battle between Westeros’ unlikely alliance of heroes and the undead hordes of the Night King. But there are also dozens of subplots that have yet to be properly wrapped up, much less reached any semblance of a conclusion. So, here’s hoping the series doesn’t rush through its final and arguably most important season.

Season seven has already been accused of rushing through several of its plots, which raises some concerns for the final season possibly doing the same. Hopefully, the final four episodes will be ‘movie length’ as HBO has promised, enabling enough time to wrap up its dense plot-lines. We’ll be waiting in anticipation!

‘Game of Thrones’ Drops Explosive Trailer for the Final Season

On Tuesday, the trailer we’ve all been waiting for dropped. The epic trailer for Game of Throne’s final season dropped and oh boy, it is a doozy.

Among the spine-tingling images highlighted in the trailer are:

+ Cersei sitting alone in her throne room, crying as she sips a glass of wine. Cersei upset? This doesn’t bode well at all…

+ Jon Snow and Daenerys, side by side, standing before Drogon and Rhaegal. It seems the fan theories are coming true, as it looks like Jon Snow will finally embrace his Targaryen heritage and ride a dragon.

+ Grey Worm donning his helmet, flanked on all sides by his Unsullied brothers in combat, no doubt preparing to fight the enemy.

+ The magnificent dragons flying over the landscape, showcasing epic splendor and beauty as they soar together.

+ And most tantalizing of all: the army of Winterfell standing assembled with many familiar faces of our heroes among their ranks. Before a single hoof of the Night King’s horse stomps into view, facing Winterfell’s defenders.

Suffice to say, this season will be utterly epic in scope, with these battles perhaps surpassing everything we’ve seen before. The final season is only a little over a month away now and we, for one, can’t wait. Let’s just hope everyone’s favorites make it out of this final chapter alive.
