HBO has officially revealed the title for this Sunday’s highly anticipated season seven finale of Game of Thrones. The episode, which clocks in at a whopping 79 minutes and 43 seconds (making it the longest one to date), is titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”
Plot details about the finale are being kept under wraps, but HBO released a preview for the episode last week. You can watch it below.
As seen in the preview, Game of Thrones is finally bringing most (if not all) of its main players together in the ruins of the Dragonpit, a location that should be familiar to fans of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga. The Dragonpit once housed several dragons, but it hasn’t been used since the Dance of the Dragons, a Targaryen civil war that took place years before the events of the HBO series.
While there’s no sign of Daenerys Targaryen herself in the footage, the finale’s title strongly suggests that the Mother of Dragons will have a big role in the episode.
The series stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Aidan Gillen as Petyr Baelish, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Carice van Houten as Melisandre, Rory McCann as Sandor “The Hound” Clegane, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Conleth Hill as Varys, Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane, Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark, Jerome Flynn as Bronn, Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont and Hannah Murray as Gilly.
Game of Thrones airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
5 Reunions To Look For In The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale
Season seven of HBO’s Game of Thrones has been pretty damn action packed. From Euron Greyjoy crushing Dany’s fleet to Jon and his allies being overwhelmed by the Night King, Game of Thrones has been firing on all cylinders when it comes to exciting, so-called “water cooler” moments.
As entertaining as it’s been, a few pieces have fallen flat. Geography and time don’t seem to be factors in the show anymore and a lot of the character interactions fans waited for have been cut short. When Sansa, Arya and Bran first reunited this summer, the show seemed to be in a hurry to move on to the next scene. Hopefully with the finale coming this Sunday, the show will give characters more time to truly talk instead of cut it short for another action scene. As forces from all sides prepare to gather in King’s Landing for a meeting between Dany, Jon and Cersei, characters who have been separated for a long time are set to come face-to-face once again.
