Game of Thrones’ viewership takes dip from final season debut

Game of Thrones’ viewership takes dip from final season debut

Game Of Thrones is gearing up for a huge battle that will probably see a lot of our favourites die. Emphasis on Night King's army, however, because as we saw the White Walkers about to bear down on Winterfell, he of the glowing blue eyes and spiky head was nowhere in sight, and neither was the zombified Viserion.

And this particular fan believes that those fighters will be found in King's Landing, where the population is the most condensed in the land.

The second episode of Game of Thrones' final season features everyone gathered at Winterfell trying to enjoy what could be their final night alive. According to Deadline, Game of Thrones' fifth to the last episode of the series, "A Knight of Seven Kingdoms", garnered 10.3 million viewers, which was down 8.2 percent compared to last week's premiere "Winterfell". Home to hundreds of thousands, King's Landing serves as the Night King's flawless breeding ground for more undead wights.

On tonight's episode, following Season 8 Episode 2 (A Knight of The Seven Kingdoms), the lads speculate that The Night King could be about to catch us all off guard.

Yes, if you caught the most recent outing of the show, you'll know that he's after none other than Bran. While it will be super nervous watching our favorite characters go up against the white walkers, a new fan theory argues that the Night King will not be present to watch the fight unfold. And they've all come a-knocking on this Sunday's "Game of Thrones". Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) also had a vision of a dragon's shadow running across the city, which could have been the Night King flying into battle.

This theory also ties in with Daenerys vision about the iron throne and great hall in ashes.

Maisie Williams told Entertainment Weekly, "There are moments you're just broken as a human and just want to cry".
