SAN DIEGO, June 15, 2014 – Season 4’s final episode of “Game of Thrones” on HBO comes with big promises as the best finale ever of the series. In interviews over the past week, those associated with the show all express pride and enthusiasm for the final 66 minutes fans will see in 2014 on Sunday, June 15.

It’s a delicious bit of timing and irony that the episode falls on Father’s Day. One of the unresolved storylines is the death sentence issued to Tyrion Lannister by his father, Tywin Lannister. Fans who have learned that no character is safe on this show are holding their breath to see if Tyrion can avoid seeing his father’s orders carried out.

Despite having extra time this week, there are still many stories to cover. Jon Snow is on his way north to attempt an assassination of Mance Rayder. Arya Stark and The Hound must set a new course having been turned away at the Eyrie following her Aunt Lysa’s death. Bran Stark, the Reeds and Hodor are headed north to a glowing tree seen in the preview. Perhaps this will reveal his true destiny?

Brienne of Tarth and Podrick Payne are also on the road, looking for Sansa Stark. Finally, it wouldn’t be right to end Season 4 without a visit to Meereen and a view of Daenerys and her dragons. Things haven’t exactly gone as The Mother of Dragons has hoped so far.

In interviews, episode director Alex Graves has described a battle scene in episode 10 using a great deal of computer generated visual effects as “so complex.” Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark Lannister, told the website “Just Jared” the end of the season is spectacular. “It takes the storyline to a whole new level of a particular storyline. And you’re like WOW. It’s a hopeful turn. It’s dramatic but it’s like, for once Game of Thrones isn’t so depressing,” Turner is quoted as saying.

Fans still reeling from the death of Prince Oberyn Martell could use a big serving of hopeful to get them through this season, and be willing to come back for Season 5. Whatever we see, count on being in your seat to enjoy every single one of those final 66 minutes of the episode.
