Entertainment Weekly reports that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have said that the season four finale, called "The Children", will be the show's finest hour.
Normally, the 9th episode of the season is the one to feature a major character death or storyline change, with the finale being quieter by comparison. "The Children" is expected to change that formula with some big moments as it visits all of the main characters.
Benioff and Weiss said in a statement: "It's the best finale we've ever done, bar none. The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new [music] cues from Ramin Djawadi—all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we've produced. We're immensely proud of ‘The Children.' And a little intimidated by the episode, because now we have to get back to the business of season five and figure out a way to top it."
In episode eight, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) was sentenced to death. Episode nine saw Jon Snow (Kit Harington) leaving Castle Black to assassinate Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds). Arya (Maisie WIlliams) headed into a new direction after learning her aunt was dead. The episode will also check in on how Daenerys Targaryen is doing with her new queendom. "The Children" is expected to run around 66 minutes, making it longer than usual.
