'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Finale Running Time Confirmed, Title Revealed

Called 'The Dragon and the Wolf', the last episode of the seventh season will be the longest episode in the show's history.
"Game of Thrones" season 7 finale is confirmed to be the longest episode in the show's history. HBO has announced the title and the running time of the final episode of the season which will air Sunday, August 27 at 9 P.M.

The episode is called "The Dragon and the Wolf" and is 79 minutes, 43 seconds long. While the seventh season is reduced to seven episodes, it has two episodes that are over 60 minutes. The second longest episode was this week's "Beyond the Wall", which brought in 10.2 million viewers overnight and more than 14 million viewers when including repeats and streaming.

As for what "The Dragon and the Wolf" stands for, it's pretty obvious that it represents Daenerys, the mother of dragons, and Jon Snow, the King in the North. However, since Jon is not the son of Ned Stark but of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen as fans have known, the title may refer to Jon alone.

The episode will see Jon, Tyrion, Varys, Ser Jorah, Theon, Davos, Brienne and Podrick arriving in King's Landing. They will meet Cersei at the Dragonpit where Jon will make his case for the importance of them fighting the Army of the Dead together. The meeting will also mark a reunion between the Lannister siblings, Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion.

Director Alan Taylor recently talked about the growing tension between Arya and Sansa Stark. "I love the fact that these two come back, they're both lethal, and I just wanted to give the impression, as much as possible, that one of them is going to die," he told the Huffington Post. "But you're not sure which one."

He went on teasing, "Arya is certainly lethal and sort of threatening, but when Sansa sends Brienne away, who is Arya's natural protector, something is coming very soon between them, and it will be violent but surprising."
