“Game of Thrones” season 7 will take the show one step closer to the finish line. Cast member Iain Glen said in a recent interview that the plot this time around feels like the show is moving towards the “end game.” With all the storylines slowly starting to converge, the characters on the show are now preparing for the final battles.

After teasing it for years, winter has finally arrived in Westeros. This signals the beginning of the final confrontation with the Night’s King and his army of White Walkers is coming. In an interview with RadioTimes, Glen (jorah Mormont) said that there will be shift in the pace of the storytelling this year, and the audience can feel the drama racing towards the “end game.”

Glen also pointed out that since there is a lot of overlapping of the different storylines, the cast members are getting to see a lot more of each other than in the past.

“Game of Thrones” season 7 is only seven episodes long, but it is still taking a long time to film. Glen explained that this is because the size and scale of the production and the world that they create is “getting more and more extraordinary.” Even though the season is shorter it feels like it is 10 episodes long because the team is putting in the same amount of efforts.

The final season of the TV series will air in 2018, and it will consist of only six episodes. HBO is already in the early stages of finalising a spin-off series to keep the fans engaged.

Glen said the he is not his character will survive “Game of Thrones” season 7. Jorah is one of the few characters from the first season who has managed to outlive some of the other major characters.
