Although "The Battle of the Bastards," Game of Thrones' penultimate episode of season six, has been fought and won, "The Winds of Winter," the season finale of the critically acclaimed HBO series, is coming at us faster than, well, the actual winds of winter descending upon the Stark family's ancestral homeland.
The finale promises to be a doozy: As Tech Insider reports, the episode will feature director Miguel Sapochnik at the helm, who also took the wheel for the epic "Battle of the Bastards" showdown during last Sunday's episode. The episode will also boast a 69-minute runtime — the longest in the series' history.
Below are six promotional photos HBO has released ahead of what is sure to be an explosive conclusion to season six.
