Season 7's finale came in at almost 80 minutes, which has been the longest Game of Thrones episode to date.

The revealed runtimes differ somewhat from 2018 runtime hints, such as series' director David Nutter's description: "Season 8 episodes will all, I think, be longer than 60 minutes".

Season 3 is a crucial time for Game of Thrones.
The second reason is that content creators definitely know when they're sitting with a dud and in this case try and limit the number of inevitable bad reviews, and the period in advance that those bad reviews start to appear, since this further damages the number of consumers who might pay to see it. There are a lot of firsts in these episodes.
In the eighth and final season, there will be two episodes at 80 minutes with the fifth episode having the same runtime as the season finale.
