Re: 7X04 The Power Of Three (Grading/Discussion) (SPOILERS!)
But, maybe we'll get the other 8 by April, and then only wait a month or two after them to get a full season back to back, plus the 50th Anniversary Special and 2013 Christmas Special
Hardly - I'm pretty sure it's going to be the back 8, anniversary, and Christmas next year, for a total of 10 episodes. They don't have time to shoot another 15 episodes to air in 2013.
There's talk of them filming for a year, so I'd expect 15 eps. with season 8.
