HBO has confirmed the titles and running time of the final two episodes of the sixth season of “Game of Thrones,” in the process revealing where the show will likely be headed before the year’s out.
The ninth episode wll be titled “The Battle of the Bastards” and presumably will see the what the show’s producers have dubbed the biggest battle in the series’ history. That episode clocks in at sixty minutes and airs June 19th.
The tenth episode, entitled “The Winds of Winter” (also the name of the next novel in the series) is said to run a whooping 69 minutes – the longest episode of the series produced to date. That airs June 26th.
Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed last year’s acclaimed “Hardhome” episode, is directing both.
