As season six of "Game of Thrones" comes to an end this weekend, fans are no doubt anxious to see where the residents of Westeros wind up before the (abbreviated) final stretch of the series begins. Now, some of the show's cast and crew have offered an idea of what viewers can expect from Sunday's season finale.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Miguel Sapochnik, the director of last week's epic "Battle of the Bastards" episode, for his take on the season-ender. Sapochnik, who also helmed the finale, offered a blunt, two-word teaser: "People die."

Viewers will have to wait until Sunday to see just who those people are, but the cast members who talked to THR have promised that the installment will certainly maintain the momentum that "Bastards" began.

Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) told the trade that the episode is "Thrilling, epic, and overwhelming," while Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) described the installment as "Breathtaking, amazing, brilliant." Superlatives such as those have become expected from "Thrones," but star Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) perhaps encapsulated things best when he revealed his own teaser to THR.

"Do. Not. Miss. It," he told the trade.

You don't have to tell us twice.

"Game of Thrones" airs it season six finale on Sunday on HBO.
