The bad news: After Sunday's climactic, George R.R. Martin-written episode of Game of Thrones, featuring the Battle of the Blackwater, Thrones fans only have one more season 2 episode to look forward to.
The good news: The season 2 finale, "Valar Morghulis," has been extended by 10 minutes to fit in all the necessary action, giving it a total running time of 64 minutes.
Game of Thrones will return for season 3 -- which should cover the first half of A Storm of Swords -- next April. Looks like it's going to be a long winter.
