Well, the finale episode of the series is all set to air on May 20 and from the preview, we feel it going to be an epic finale ever. The episode is 80 minutes long. The creators David Benioff and DB Wiess donned the director’s hat for the finale, however they are skeptical about the reaction to the ending, which is one reason why they won’t be online when the episode air next Monday.
