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?
