Over the years, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have set the bar awfully high for their HBO drama.
And it's worked: Game of Thrones is now the most popular series in network history.
But the executives clearly aren't afraid to raise viewer expectations even higher, not after a statement they released yesterday that teased this Sunday's finale as possible the "finest hour" they've ever produced.
"It’s the best finale we’ve ever done, bar none,” Benioff and Weiss said of Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 10. “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."
The Game of Thrones Season 4 finale will bring many characters and storylines to the forefront.
We’ll learn Tyron’s fate in King’s Landing. We’ll watch as Arya plots a new course. We’ll witness a surprise concerning Dany and we’ll be treated to an extra six minutes of air time:
Plan accordingly, GoT Fanatics. This Sunday's installment will run 66 minutes.
