The Game of Thrones Season 6 finale tonight, dubbed ‘The Winds of Winter,’ will run 69 minutes or roughly 15 minutes longer than a typical episode. It may need all of those extra minutes to match the intensity and awesomeness that was last week’s penultimate GoT thriller. Find out how to watch Game of Thrones online free live streaming via HBO tonight whether you have a cable or satellite subscription or not as the last episode of 2016 premieres.
Last week’s Game of Thrones checked at least two items off the series bucket list that have existed for at least several seasons. First, Daenerys took care of the slavers assault by finally reuniting her three dragons and letting them trash a couple ships with their first. This is the first time we’ve seen all three fully grown dragons in battle at the same time.
Then there was the battle of the bastards, the episode’s namesake. Ramsay got the best of Jon Snow by murdering young Rickon in front of him. That let Snow’s emotions get the best of him and he nearly died trying to rush at Ramsay’s army.
When Ramsay stood at the precipice of victory, LittleFinger showed up with the Knights of the Vale and Ramsay was forced to retreat. He was then nearly beaten to death by Snow’s hands, only to awaken later in the dog kennel and be eaten alive after Sansa told him how worthless his life and legacy have become.
The official synopsis for tonight’s Game of Thrones Season 6 finale is longer than the typical synopsis, befitting an episode that will run over an hour in length. It covers everything HBO has shared in the trailer meaning there are still surprises to be had, “Cersei stands trial for her crimes, while Jaime celebrates victory with Walder Frey at The Twins. Davos confronts Jon about Melisandre’s actions, and Littlefinger reveals his intentions to Sansa. Meanwhile, Bran continues his quest for knowledge in the far North as “winter” finally arrives.”
