Earlier this week, HBO announced the length of the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, titled The Dragon and the Wolf. It will be the longest episode ever — 79 minutes and 43 seconds. On Conan, they showed a sneak peek of the episode that reveals how they filled that extra time.
Given the hyperspeed pace of Season 7, the sneak peek seems oddly reminiscent of Season 1 through Season 6. Things move much slower; there’s more dialogue, and there’s a lot of buildup that doesn’t necessarily lead anywhere. Of course, in the actual show, a lot of the buildup that didn’t seem to deliver anything at the time was actually just building up to what we’re all witnessing now — and will witness in the future.
Everything in this sneak peek builds up to reveal a Game of Thrones fan favorite, none other than Samwell Tarly himself, John Bradley, who happened to be there all along.
