Game of Thrones making: Here’s how the White Walkers came to life


Our anticipation for the final season has reached fever pitch. Season 7's finale came in at almost 80 minutes, which has been the longest Game of Thrones episode to date.

The 8th season of Game of Thrones starts on M-Net (DStv 101) on Monday, 15 April at 03:00 with an episode that will be 54 minutes in duration, as an Express from the U.S. title with episodes that will be shown simultaneously as in the United States and again at 22:00 on the same day. So much has happened in Game of Thrones that now is the flawless time to be rewatching the series in the build-up to those last six episodes.

I mean, look at the number of people who watched the season's official trailer.

Enterprising fans have figured out the remaining four episodes in the season will indeed be super-sized, clocking in around 70 and 80 minutes, including the series finale.

So, what gives? Why are the first two episodes of what's expected to be the biggest, boldest, most jaw-dropping, WTF-inducing season of Game of Thrones a little shorter than expected? Though the first two installments are coming in under 60 minutes (and certainly aren't the movie-length episodes that were hinted at a year and a half ago), fans can rest easy knowing that the action and drama featured in each will be oh-so satisfying. It really is so unpredictable the way that it ends up. There are countless great moments, plenty of horrifying ones, moments of foreshadows, and lots to pick up on when going back through these 10 episodes.
