Biggest Battle In TV History Will Take Place In Third Episode Of Final 'Game Of Thrones' Season

Television history is going to be changed forever next April, when Game of Thrones screens the biggest battle ever shown on TV as part of season 8 - the final installment in HBO's epic fantasy drama series.

Vladimir Furdik, who plays the show's infamous Night King, has revealed that GoT's biggest and most costly battle ever will go down in the third episode - and that's only half way through season eight.

In a recent interview with Hungarian news website, Sorozat Wiki, the actor confirmed that fans will finally get to see the ultimate battle we've all been waiting for since we first saw Jon Snow take on the White Walkers.

He said: "In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history. Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour."

Considering it was confirmed earlier in the year that each episode would be longer than an hour, that probably means the enormous scrap won't be the only thing happening in that particular episode.

The battle itself took more than two and a half months of night shoots - on location in Toome, Northern Ireland - the filming location for Winterfell, so you know the walkers have well and truly come into Westeros after getting the dragon to destroy the Wall.

With this huge battle between (presumably) Jon and the Night King happening in the first half of the six-part season, it leaves the question: what's going to happen in the last three episodes? And who will take the Iron Throne?

Like all other members of the cast, Vladimir was very protective about the end of the show, but did give his opinion on the theory of Bran Stark being the Night King.

He said: "It would be an amazing surprise, but I can tell you that there will be no shortage in Season 8. There will be a lot of dragons, the Night King will return, and the biggest battle of the season will be completed. It will be interesting to see what David Benioff has found out for the big finale. But I cannot tell more about it."

Of come on man, we're dying here.

We might not know how it's all going to end or who, if anyone, will sit on the Iron Throne at the very end, but we do know that in only a few short months we'll finally get our much-needed dose of Jon Snow when Game of Thrones season 8 hits our screens in April 2019.

With this battle looming, one thing's for sure. Winter is coming...and it's going to be epic.
