We've known for quite some time that the final two seasons of Game of Thrones would be truncated affairs, but still, we can't help feeling that the show's seventh season finale is upon us far too soon.
Fewer episodes has meant a faster pace, which – though fun in some cases – has resulted in some pretty glaring inconsistencies in others.
(Based on travel times, Westeros is now apparently the size of Providence, Rhode Island.)
Fortunately, the show is in a position to deliver its most explosive season finale to date, which should help placate fans who are feeling slighted.
Check out the first photos from "The Wolf and the Dragon" below, and watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to get caught up in time for Sunday night's installment.
