Epic Game Of Thrones finale rules the ratings
MOTHER of dragons! Game Of Thrones smashed its own ratings records with the steamy season finale.
More than 16.5million US viewers tuned in to the fantasy drama on Sunday — exceeding the previous high set earlier this month when 10.7million saw episode five.
Titled The Dragon And The Wolf, it saw Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) get intimate. It came as viewers learned Daenerys is Snow’s aunt.
‘The reality of what they are to each other, I don’t know how that’s going to… I think gagging might be the reaction,’ said Clarke. Harington, also 30, added: ‘We were both kind of freaking out.’
Production on the eighth and final series begins in October.
