The season finale of season 7 is less than a week away, and fear for our beloved characters is warring with our excitement over all the potential the finale could hold. As the big moment approaches, HBO has confirmed the title of the episode and its super-sized length.
“The Dragon and the Wolf,” will wrap up the season, delivering 79 minutes and 43 seconds of action (as reported early Tuesday by Watchers on the Wall). Previous season finales have given us primary character deaths and drastic shifts in plot, so it’s hard to know what to expect from season 7’s final episode.
So who is the dragon and who is the wolf? The obvious answer would be Daenerys and Jon, but that doesn’t mean it is the correct one. The open-ended episode title could also refer to Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. After teasing it earlier this season, Game of Thrones may be ready to reveal R+L=J to characters other than Bran, who has been frustratingly quiet on the matter.
Luckily, we only have a few days until we find out.
