We’ve been hearing a lot about how the final season episodes will be longer, with some speculating that the episodes will have feature-length run times. We can finally put that rumor to rest after looking at the following list:

Season 8, episode 1: Air date: Sunday, 14th at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). I’m calling this episode “How I Met Your Mother… of Dragons“*. Episode 1 clocks in at a sleek and sexy 54 minutes.

Season 8, episode 2: Air date: Sunday, April 21 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) I’m calling this one “How to Train Your Drogon”. Another quickie, clocking in at 58 minutes.

Season 8, episode 3: Air date: Sunday, April 28 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) Oooof, already ran out of Dragon movie puns. How about we call this one, uhm, “Nice Day for a White (Walker) Wedding”. HBO says this episode will have a one hour, 22 minute run time. That will make this episode the longest of the season, but not by much!

Season 8, episode 4: Air date: Sunday, May 5 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). We’re getting another long one, with a one hour, 18 minute run time. And I’m fresh out of clever names for episodes I haven’t seen yet.

Season 8, episode 5: Air date: Sunday, May 12 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) One hour and 20 minutes, and I thought of another one! Let’s call this episode “Jon Snowpeircer”.

Season 8, episode 6: Air date: Sunday, May 19 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Another one hour and 20 minute affair, and will probably involve a lot of dead guys. And dragons.

It’s hard to believe that Game of Thrones is coming to an end, but at least we can see it off in style!
