11. Do More With Less
Game of Thrones has fewer episodes this year, with a reduction from 10 to 7. While on the one hand that doesn't sound great, because it means we aren't getting as much of something we love, it could be a blessing in disguise.
Firstly, it proves that David Benioff and Dan Weiss are telling the story the way they want to, rather than delivering another 10 episodes simply for cash and viewing figures.
It's also an opportunity to go bigger, even with a shortened run. The production is slated to last the same amount of time as a regular season, and you'd imagine the budget won't change too much.
That gives them the chance to go huge in scale, and perhaps even deliver a couple of much longer episodes. The Westworld season finale was 90 minutes - it's not difficult to imagine Thrones being able to pull off something similar.
