Game of Throne's production team might do everything that they can to keep the secrets of the fantasy epic's eighth and final season out of the public's hands (including shooting down drones that plague the set) before the new episodes premiere, but it looks like info about the series continues to make its way online.

The newest report comes from the Night King himself, Game of Thrones star Vladimir Furdik. While fans have come to expect the penultimate battle between the living and the dead taking place in the final episode of the series, Furdik reveals that such is not the case.

Furdik just recently spoke with fans during a Hungarian fan convention, and during his time in the panel, the Game of Thrones' Night King unwittingly revealed the placement of the big battle of the season. Mashable just managed to get a translation of Furdik's quote in English, one that's been verified by a native Hungarian speaker.


"In the third episode of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intended to be a historic moment in television ... Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about one hour," the actor said during the panel.

Every season of Game of Thrones has a penultimate episode, and usually, it comes as the second to the last episode in every season. However, if Furdik was being truthful, then we're getting the epic battle for season 8 early on in the season. This is a battle that took 55 nights and even more weeks to film – a fight that might turn out to be the biggest and most dramatic battle that fans have ever seen on television.

Game of Thrones season 8 premieres April 2019.
