HBO has officially confirmed the runtime of the final season of Game of Thrones . In six episodes, fans have only 432 minutes to spend with Jon, Dany and the rest of Westeros. Prepare for it …
Everything has its time and everything ends, and this includes Game of Thrones. But as fans counted on lavish events to send the entire eight-year history so long with a blast, the very peculiarities of the time were driven even by the comic fandom of Game of Thrones . ironic, since they have little to do with, but count down the seconds to April 14 and literally speculate all kinds of things about the climax of this song of ice and fire (and it turns out the time). They have their questions and now, via the Hollywood Reporter, they have at least some answers:

Are they answers enough for people who have spent their time – a resource that is paradoxically precious and fleeting – and think about time? What does it say [episodethreeisonehourandtwenty-twominuteslongwhileepisodefiveisonehourandtwenty ? Why is not it an hour and 23 or an hour and 15? Why not 90 seconds?
I do not know. It is just a number, a fragmentary piece of the infinite minutes that will come in our existence, a droplet that has already curled both and still to across the endless sea of an ever-drumming drumbeat. And those are just estimates. It could be more or less. The fluidity of time can not be mastered, not even by a prestigious cable network.
But what about ? It is the blink of an eye or the death of a star. His fluid, momentary nature permeating every atom of existence is both beautiful and an existential nightmare. It is everything and nothing.
There are also 432 minutes. And HBO hopes you look forward to it.
