HBO confirms “Game of Thrones” super-sized season 6 finale

PanARMENIAN.Net - "Game of Thrones" is getting a super-sized season 6 finale. HBO has revealed the titles and running time for the final two episodes of the sixth season. The extended season 6 finale will air on Sunday, June 26, AceShowbiz said.

Episode 9, which airs for 60 minutes on June 19, is titled "The Battle of the Bastards". The title seemingly hints at the long-overdue confrontation between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) for control of Winterfell and the North as a whole.

The finale is titled "The Winds of Winter", a nod to George R.R. Martin's forthcoming sixth novel in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, which was originally intended to be released prior to this season. The finale is a whopping 69 minutes long, making it the longest "GoT" episode ever.

Both episodes are directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed last year's acclaimed "Hardhome" episode.

While there are no descriptions yet for the final two episodes, HBO has unveiled the title and synopsis of episode 8, airing on Sunday, June 12 at 9/8c. Titled "No One", the description reads, "While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test." HBO has also released photos of the new episode.
