The previous longest episode in the saga was the season 6 finale, “The Winds of Winter,” which ran 69 minutes. It’s been a very fast-paced season of   Game of Thrones,   and Sunday’s episode is going to fly by even quicker. That’s because “The Spoils of War” clocks as the shortest episode in the HBO drama’s history. But it’s considerably shorter than the current season’s first three episodes, which were each an hour, or even a few minutes over.
