Unfortunately, the titles of the episodes are not revealed yet. The final four episodes of Game of Thrones will be more of a movie with a runtime over 1 hour. These episodes will have more ground to cover as compared to the rest. After watching the trailer of the second episode, it seems that most of the episode’s event will take place in Winterfell. Tensions arise as the army of the Night King are approaching.
