Season 8 confirmed to be just six episodes by David and Dan. Can't believe only 13 more episodes left. Next year will be it.

It's a pity not all seasons are equal length, but if the story demands exactly those episodes, so be it.

I just hope it won't all feel immensely rushed, there's so much stuff to happen, but then again we don't know how it all ends so maybe 13 episodes are exactly what it needs. For sure Dany must meet Jon Snow somehow, and at the very least attempt to reach King's Landing, and the White Walkers have to break through the Wall, if not tear it down completely.

There's bound to be some extended episodes and the finale may even be double length - I wouldn't be surprised if there is close to 15 hours of viewing remaining.   To put that into perspective the fully maximum extended cuts of the LoTR's only creeps over 12 hours, I doubt it'll feel rushed.

I think it's definitely going to feel rushed.  The show has slowly upped the pace every season.  Last season was nuts how fast everything was happening and with only 13 more episodes and so much to still happen, I very much believe it will feel rushed.  That doesn't mean bad, but I think we get less of those slow dialogue moments and more to the point action.

there's so much stuff to happen

How do we know how much there is still to happen? We're in unchartered territory now.

I very much get the impression that the show-runners essentially had 7 seasons mapped out (and I remember seeing something at least a couple of years ago that said they were looking at doing 7 seasons), but what they had planned for the final season was too much to fit into 10 episodes. So to avoid it being too rushed/crammed, they upped the episodes and decided to split in two, rather than have a longer final season.

And I certainly have no problem with them keeping up the pace like in season 6. Season 5 was such a drag.

They had always thought that they could tell the entire story in 72 or 73 hours, so it seems like everything is going according to the original plan.

I have no doubt the creators could take as many episodes as they wanted, and HBO would be happy to oblige. If they say they only need 13 episodes to wrap it up, I trust them. Better to focus on making those episodes everything they can be than stretch it out for the sake of being a full length season and end up with filler.
And I think 13 episodes should be enough for them to tie things up. Yeah, there's a lot going on, but once the plots all come together and more characters get offed, it should work out about right.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Oh HBO would definetely give them more if they wanted to. I remember reading somewhere that HBO actually asked them to make more episodes, like to do 9 seasons, but Dan and David said no.

How do we know how much there is still to happen? We're in unchartered territory now.

Just looking at the distances everyone is from each other, it makes it easy to believe that ending all the storylines in a cohesive matter will be at a much quicker pace compared to how the previous seasons have played out.  I thought season 6 may have been the best because it was so fast paced so I am not saying it's bad, but it still has me feeling there is a lot that still needs to happen in the show.  Plus without source material, it's easier for them to just focus on the main storylines that have been brewing the whole time instead of introducing new ones like GRRM kept doing..

Do you mean physical distances? Because the show has always had a ton of time-jumps that mean people travel halfway across the world in seconds. :lol

I love that.  I don't need to see numerous episodes of armies marching or characters traveling from place to place.  I like that the distances are traveled off screen or between episodes, leaving the characters to interact with each other on screen.

I do and yes the show has gotten over that, but thats something they've been doing more and more as the show goes on sort of how the pace has gotten faster.  I think there's a relationship here.

Anyone been to GoT concert experience? I'm getting tickets for one of the shows and trying to decide where would be a good spot to watch the show. On one hand I wanna be able to see the musicians playing but also it seems from the videos I've seen on youtube that the overhead screens are pretty huge and high, which could mean I'd be better off with further out seats.

Just got back from the show, it was spectacular!
Amazing musicians, some cool pyro and a great run down memory lane of the past 6 seasons.
