Do they already know which is the real ending? There was word a while back that they filmed 5-6 of them and even the actors won't know which one is the real one.

 

Rumours to that effect were put out during the production, but the chances of them being true are surely close to zero. It provides a certain amount of cover from any spoiler leaks coming from members of the crew or from spies, and from any inadvertently revealing comments that might be made by members of the cast.

What I liked about season 7 was it closed out a huge portions of storylines and combined many others.

 

All we have left is Sansa and Arya in charge of Winterfell with Baelish dead, Cersei running Kings Landing with Jamie starting to lose faith in her, and Danerys and Jon Snow united and unaware they're related (but Bran and Sam know)

Wait - Littlefinger is dead? I can't even remember that event.

 

Hard to believe right, if you recall the character in season one.

 

But yeah mate, your memory is seriously fucked.

HBO CEO says the final season is extraordinary

 

Quote

“It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie,’” Plepler told Variety. “They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”

Started rewatching the entire thing in preparation. Some of the early basic exposition is delivered via exquisitely forced and clunky dialogue! It's cute. Also, in the first 4 episodes, the King travels to Winterfell, back to King's Landing with Ned, Cat gets down to Winterfell and back to the Vale. They do say it takes a month ever time and I did think the travelling in S7 was skipped cheaply, but it's funny it kinda began the same way that everone now dislikes in it. Also Baelish speaking in his normal voice instead of that forced gravelliness is very offputting.

 

 

Will Bloodboal be back for the final season?

It gets better, although seven seasons in and I'm not optimistic about the end, I'm not looking forward to anything! What's the end goal?

Either killing all the white walkers or making peace with them; Basically stopping their invasion into Westeros.

 

Beyond that, just figuring out who will be the next King or Queen or Westeros I suppose

After all this time, Dany will find out her new lover happens to have a better claim to the throne than she does, as a direct line lawful male descendant. That will be juicy.

I've read about people saying things along those lines, but without much credibility, since it would negate the showrunners' stated reasons for having fewer episodes (i.e., much higher concentration of the budget and production time). All six episodes being in the 90-120 minute range would result in this season being longer than one of the ten-episode seasons!

 

If the above tweet is reasonably accurate, Seasons 7 and 8 should be of roughly equal length.

I think it's quite possible that those two "80 minutes" are still just placeholders/approximations which could change a bit (in either direction). The "78 minutes" for Episode 4 seems more solid. Perhaps the apparent finalisation of the running times for Episodes 1, 2 and 4 before the others is an indication that David Nutter was earliest to sign of on his work. Or perhaps it's just a coincidence; I guess the final signing off is down to Benioff and Weiss.
