Game of Thrones Season 2 Finale On 3 June – Don’t Missed!

The second season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is sadly almost over. After the impressive spectacle of Blackwater, an episode focused solely on the siege of King’s Landing, the finale is now tasked with picking through the remains of the battle as well as tying up all the other loose ends. And surely creating a few more since every conclusion needs a good cliffhanger. Season 1 delivered dragons, so what will Season 2′s “Valar Morghulis” have in store? That will be revealed Sunday in an extended final installment.

Watch Game of Thrones Season 2

An extra ten minutes to be exact! HBO Watch shared the news and you don’t need to look any further than the schedule (or yours at home) to confirm it. But you will probably want to make sure your DVR has the update, or else you might record the finale and find it a little less finale than you had hoped. Game of Thrones episodes typically run just shy of 55 minutes but “Valar Morghulis” has an official runtime of 64 minutes! And sure, ten minutes may seem like nothing but it’s a, uh (wait…), 18.5 percent increase in run time!

Thank the Old Gods or the Seven or R’hllor or whomever you worship because, if there is one constant complaint I have about the series it’s that, there is never enough time. Not necessarily a bad complaint to have (your audience always wanting more) but the series always runs the risk of sharing too much too quickly and losing the viewers. If there is one episode where you definitely don’t want to rush anything, it’s the finale. And the preview for “Valar Morghulis” suggests that there is still a lot of plot to sort out before the end credits roll, so it’s great to see that HBO has granted David Benioff and D.B. Weiss the extra run time to ensure it’s done right. The second season finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Game of Thrones is based on the “Song of Ice and Fire” saga by George R.R. Martin.

The aftermath of the Battle of the Blackwater sees Joffrey reward his followers while Tyrion finds himself in a strange situation. In Winterfell, Maester Luwin has some final advice for Theon. Jaqen H’ghar gives Arya a gift. Daenerys visits a wondrous place in Qarth. Beyond the Wall, Jon Snow pleases Qhorin with his actions.

As if we weren’t already ridiculously excited for the Game of Thrones Season 2 finale on June 3 (Season 2 Episode 10: “Valar Morghulis”), we find out that the episode will be extra-long.

What can he reveal about what’s about to happen to his character? Plus, what was it like on set while filming the Season 2 finale?

Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, “Blackwater,” while perhaps the show’s best episode yet, also left viewers with a burning question: how are they going to address all the hanging storylines in the show’s final episode, which airs Sunday? “Blackwater” only focused on the events surrounding King’s Landing, meaning that the storylines of Theon, Dany, Robb, Brienne, Jaime, Bran, Arya, Jon, Sam, and Catelyn were left unaddressed. In addition to the cliffhangers from “Blackwater” — and there were a few — that leaves the season’s final episode to be quite the juggling act.

Thankfully, HBO is accounting for that by allowing the season finale episode, “Valar Morghulis,” to run ten minutes longer than a typical episode. Instead of the typical 54 minutes, the finale will be 64 minutes long, allowing for more time to resolve all those hanging storylines.

The episode, which airs June 3, is written by executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The episode will be an action-packed one, according to the synopsis:

Tyrion awakens to a changed situation. King Joffrey doles out rewards to his subjects. As Theon stirs his men to action, Luwin offers some final advice. Brienne silences Jaime; Arya receives a gift from Jaqen; Dany goes to a strange place; Jon proves himself to Qhorin.

“Valar Morghulis” takes its title from phrase Jaqen H’ghar teaches Arya in the episode. The translation? “All men must die.” Sounds just ominous enough to get me excited.

“Valar Morghulis” airs June 3 on HBO. Season 3 is slated to begin in Spring 2013. It already feels like a long wait.
