10 Things We Need to Happen in the \'Game of Thrones\' Season 7 Finale

Game of Thrones Season 7 has definitely had the fastest-paced and most action-packed episodes to date. So maybe it's greedy to demand even more.

Still, Sunday's finale will mark the beginning of the end — setting the stage for the last six episodes ever of the HBO fantasy epic.

So here are 10 things we need this finale to deliver.

The Game of Thrones Season 7 finale airs Sunday, August 27 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

Someone has to learn the truth about Jon

The fact that Gilly literally had her hands on the truth about Jon Snow — or should we say Jon Targaryen? — is too maddening to leave unacknowledged by the end of this season.

We aren't saying Jon and/or Dany need to find out they are each other's nephew and aunt, respectively, but we need to see those wheels set in motion.

There's no other resolution to this storyline that will satisfy us. Though we're led to believe either Sansa or Arya will destroy the other, we hope against all hopes that they are conspiring, together, against Littlefinger.

It's time for Arya to add that two-faced manipulator to her bag.

Speaking of Lord Baelish, let's talk about the dagger that, at this point, has changed hands more than the Brooklyn Nets.

We would love for its true origins to be revealed after seeing that hot potato get passed around all season. And then we would like it to draw blood. (Littlefinger blood, please.)

Some kind of resolution in the North

No matter what happens with the Lord Protector of the Vale, we need the North's allegiances to be clear and unified behind either Jon or Sansa. 

So, if Petyr does make it out of this season alive, we need to know whether Sansa is aligning with him to stoke the fires of mutiny against Jon, or if she will quell the coming rebellion against her "brother."

Does it breathe fire or ice? Will he still know his mommy? Do two fire dragons cancel out one ice dragon? Is a dragon wight even the same thing as an ice dragon? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

We've seen the teaser photos so let's just say it's time for the Hound and the Mountain to go head to undead head.

We need to know what is going to happen to our favorite Greyjoy (yes, the bar is low). 

Bonus points for her paying the iron price to buy her freedom — i.e., making mincemeat of Uncle Euron.

What use is a guy that knows everything if he doesn't share the knowledge? We would love to see this three-eyed raven soar. Tell your siblings what you know, Bran!

We know... ew. But again, we would like to direct your attention to the Queen who's carrying her twin brother's fetus. In the universe of Game of Thrones, it wouldn't even crack the top ten cases of icky incest, and you gotta admit you're vibing on that match.

After Giantsbane told the Hound very candidly about his desire to make babies with Brienne of Tarth, we'd hate for that crush to continue on unrequited for yet another season.
