Usually instalments come in at around 55 minutes, but clearly a little overtime was required to make the final episode fly.

The episode is called The Winds of Winter, the title of the as-yet-unreleased sixth novel in George RR Martin’s series

The penultimate episode meanwhile is called (potential spoilers here) The Battle of the Bastards, suggesting Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton will finally have their fight for Winterfell. That episode will run for 60 minutes.

Bring on the bloodshed.
