Game of Thrones is getting a super-sized season six finale. HBO has revealed the titles and running time for the final two episodes of the sixth season, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The extended season 6 finale will air on June 26.
The ninth episode of the ongoing sixth season , which airs for 60 minutes on June 19, is titled The Battle of the Bastards. The title seemingly hints at the long-overdue confrontation between the show's characters Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) for control of Winterfell and the North as a whole.
The finale is titled The Winds of Winter, a nod to author George R R Martin's forthcoming sixth novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, which was originally intended to be released prior to this season.
The finale is 69 minutes long, making it the longest Game of Thrones episode ever.
Both episodes will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who directed last year's critically acclaimed episode titled Hardhome.
There are no descriptions yet for the final two episodes but HBO has unveiled the title and synopsis of the upcoming episode eight, airing this Sunday.
Titled No One, its description reads, "While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test."
