Game of Thrones facts 50 things you didn't know

Just how much Game of Thrones is left? The first and second episodes of Season 8 clock in at 54 minutes and 58 minutes, respectively, which is pretty standard. Well, it turns out that isn't quite the case - but there will be a fair few longer episodes in Game Of Thrones' final run. The longest episode of the season actually comes halfway through, with April 28's episode 3. Of course, the most important thing here is that the episodes are the right length - enough for character moments, those epic battles we're all waiting for, and without bulk for the sake of bulk. Episode four, Sunday May 5, is back down to an hour and 18 minutes, but episode five on Sunday, May 12 is back up to an hour and 20 minutes.
