Winter has returned and the highly-anticipated final season of Game of Thrones found its way back to HBO. The episode was chock full of twists and turns as most of Westeros got ready for the Great War, but one thing sure stuck out like a sore thumb to fans of the show.
Clocking in around 55 minutes long, many fans were quick to note the shorter episode, quickly taking to social media to rant and rave about the final season premiere. In contrast, the shortest episode of the series — Season Seven's "The Spoils of War" — lasted only 50 minutes on the premium cable network.
Keep scrolling to see what fans are saying about the short run time...
Game of Thrones airs Sunday night on HBO beginning at 9/8 p.m. Central.

That episode was way too short. I’m just happy they got a few of the major bombs out of the way. #GameofThrones— Rachel (@rs2471) April 15, 2019
