'Game of Thrones' Episode Runtimes Confirmed

Our last days in Westeros will have an extended runtime. 

Okay nerds, let's start overanalyzing what's happening in each episode of GoT now that we know the runtimes! 

HBO confirmed the debut dates and estimated running times for the final six episodes of the series. Season 8 launches on Sunday, April 14, the running time will be 54 minutes, the shortest of the episodes, with the next-shortest coming in at 58 minutes the following week. There was a lot of speculation that each episode would be a mini-movie, but this seems more like a manageable story length. 

Here’s the entire six-episode roster for the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss series:
