GAME OF THRONES Season Finale Receives 10 Extra Minutes

Following the aftermath of the carnage of last night's "Blackwater", comes fresh news that the season finale of HBO's Game of Thrones, “Valar Morghulis” will include 10 extra minutes of footage.

If you're like me then you were thoroughly pleased with Game of Thrones' depiction of The Battle of Blackwater. I thought the depiction of wildfire was spot-on and the addition of some new scenes more than made up for those that were not included from the novel. Now we have the news that the season finale of HBO's hit medieval drama, which has become the #1 rating series on television, will receive 10 extra minutes to sort through the aftermath of the battle and setup plot points for Season Three. Adjust your DVRs accordingly. What do you hope to see before the credits roll on Season Two?

This season has been somewhat of a disappointment. Hopefully, they'll get it together next season.

We'll see, I guess.

Excellent... However there were a couple scenes I thought were executed very poorly. When the big moment happened though I was amazed.

Disappointment? You must be mad, sir.

sansClaymore - 5/28/2012, 9:15 PM

The finale will, hopefully, end with the last Jon chapter in the second novel. Which is the penultimate chapter for the entire book. This would be so absolutely flippin' perfect. I can't even.

Season 1 was climactic episode to episode. It just kept going up and up and up in terms of tension and ended so awesomely with the hatching of the dragons.

Season 2 although still the best show ever....lacked the tension that season 1 had. The War is just dragged too long. We dont get to see much of Jon Snow or Daenerys' progression in their individual stories.

Bring on the Bastard of the Dreadfort. Joffrey's a nice little kitten compared to him.

Best show on tv.

Great show, even though it deviates from the book a bit. Still a great companion to the books.

Loved season one...completely bored by season two. I hope season three gets back on track!
BlueHawaiiSurfer - 5/29/2012, 8:29 AM
Thought season 2 was good, would hardly call it completely boring even though it was a tad "slower" than the first.

Very good season. Loved this episode. Renly's ghost was epic, Davos being right about the battle was epic, Stannis Slicing [racial slur]s heads in half, The Hound. Tywin walking in like a boss. Just epic.

such an awsome series, its the fastest hour on TV, wish it was 2 hours long but then i guess i would want it to be three hours. really looking forward to the season finale but also dreading it since we will have to wait so long for the next season, ah well i guess true blood will have to do for a while:)

i am excited and nervous about how they will execute the house of undying. hoping for rhaegar three headed dragonss, rhaegar whispering lyanna and the blue flower on ice. i want the season to end with arya and the coin.
MatchesMalone1989 - 5/29/2012, 10:02 AM
I hope you guys who blocked out the N word and put racial slur know that your giving power to the word. We killed that shit bro. Why give it power again?
