Game of Thrones will conclude its penultimate seventh season this Sunday with a total running time of 79 minutes and 43 seconds.
To whet the fans' appetite even more, co-stars Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) and Richard Dormer (Beric) dropped some intriguing teases about the final hour titled "The Dragon and the Wolf" in an interview with THR.
Read their comments below:
It's going to be interesting, I can tell you that.
It's like Game of Thrones is competing with Game of Thrones, in the way that we feel everybody has to take it up another notch to make the fans happy. I really think they have done that this year. When you have a battle in episode two, and a huge one in episode four ... these are big, big sequences. Somehow, it feels like the thing on Game of Thrones now is, if anybody comes up with a [great] idea, whatever the cost, the ambition, everyone has to say yes. We're competing with ourselves. Episode seven is maybe the longest one. We're talking about a feature-length episode.
I think what everybody imagines, they're going to get it, and maybe even a little bit more.
It's the last episode, so things are really ramping up. It's going to be truly epic. You're going to wish you were watching on a massive cinema screen.
BONUS SPOILER BIT:
* Series director Alan Taylor, who helmed last Sunday's "Beyond the Wall," teased a 'violent' turn of events between sisters Arya and Sansa in an interview with Huff Post. He said:
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.
