‘Game of Thrones’ Confirms Bastardly Battle in Final Season 6 Episode Titles
HBO played a bit coy in releasing only the episode synopsis and title of Game of Thrones Season 6's eighth episode, where prior foreign leaks seemingly gave away a familiar-sounding finale title. Now, sources confirm a major battle in episode 9, and a title George R.R. Martin might smirk at for the finale.
Where previously a German outlet seemed to leak the final three Season 6 episode titles, Watchers on the Wall have now confirmed their accuracy with HBO’s own scheduling site. Not only will this coming Sunday bring us “No One,” but June 19 will take us to the “Battle of the Bastards” (itself a pet-name during production), and a not-at-all ironic release of “The Winds of Winter” to close us out on June 26.
Not only that, but Entertainment Weekly confirms that “The Winds of Winter” will run a whopping 69 minutes, the longest in Game of Thrones history, also debunking rumored a rumored finale synopsis that pointed overwhelmingly to a Lady Stoneheart appearance. Keep hope alive, truthers!
In the meantime, check out the first looks at Sunday’s “No One” below, and stay tuned for the latest on “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter.”
