Now, with the release of the upcoming finale's title - The Dragon and the Wolf - a large chunk of the fandom have a sneaking suspicion the biggest hookup in the history of Westeros is about to go down! The Game of Thrones episode will clock it at 79 minutes and 43 which nearly makes it a contender for a feature-length film. In a postmortem interview with Deadline for "Beyond the Wall", he revealed that during the filming of season 1, Martin visited the Game of Thrones set in Malta and openly discussed certain things he had planned for his book series.

The "Game of Thrones" finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. That, or maybe Dany will sentence both Jaime and Cersei to a double-death when she takes the throne. While there's very little narration throughout the 47-second preview, Jon Snow closes the video with an ominous sentiment: "There's only one war that matters and it is here", he says.

The official pictures give an idea of what everyone else's mood at the meeting will be and it's not surprising that no one, but especially Cersei and Jaime, look thrilled. The most recent episode, Beyond The Wall, is perhaps most guilty of some timeline weirdness, so much so that the director of the episode has thrown out a few comments addressing the issue. Daenerys Targaryen is no where to be seen. The episode is titled "The Dragon and The Wolf", hinting at the relationship and bond formed between Daenerys and Jon.

But the perhaps the moment that caught fans the most off guard was the unexpected return of Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle), the uncle of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) who vanished from the series in season one only to return as a half-undead warrior to saved his other nephew Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) past year.

Talking about the title, there are a lot of implications of the finale episode. For Cersei, it's getting Daenerys to cease her claim to the Iron Throne and for Jon Snow to declare his loyalty and yield his crown as King of the North.

This is all pretty intriguing when you think about Tyrion and Dany's conversation in this week's episode.
