Game of Thrones hits another ratings high with its penultimate episode

Game of Thrones hits another ratings high with its penultimate episode

The season premiere of the final eighth series scored a sky-high 92% but since then the show has seen ratings drop, with episode two scoring 88% followed by the third reaching only 75%.

The final episode is sure to wrap up the story in a big way, and we can only imagine HBO didn't want to tease anything too big!

Game of Thrones season eight is the last season of the hugely popular show, and the finale will air this weekend.

The blockbuster hit show has offered up a short final season - just six episodes - but some of them have been long.

Vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger was also let go on Wednesday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lee was a 2016 first-round pick by the Jets, taken 20th overall, and played three underwhelming seasons in Gotham.


As of this writing, 83 critics have lodged reviews for the episode, 42 of which are "rotten" with scores of 60 percent or lower. Yet, there has been a lot of discord between viewers regarding issues with these investments coming out of this season, and particularly The Bells episode, has got a lot of people fired up about Daenerys (pun intended). As set up by last week's episode, this brings us the Battle of King's Landing, in an episode titled The Bells. That's fine. It's the nature of a multi-character show. Of all the characters, Sansa is making some of the most calculated moves in the final season (Cersei and Littlefinger taught her well).

Jon has seen what Daenerys has become as he watched her burn King's Landing to the ground. The episode makes you wonder though, how the hell are they going to end the HBO series?

Game of Thrones will return for its series finale on Monday, May 20, amid intense fan expectations and scrutiny. These two are prime examples of two very different political sides: Dany feels entitled to the Iron Throne because of her name; Sansa feels someone who actually knows the people should rule. We also get a glimpse of a furious Arya standing among the victorious, cheering Dothraki, before the new Queen of the Ashes emerges to claim the smoking heap of the once great city as her own.
