"The Dance of Dragons" Viewership Breakdown

The numbers are in for the latest episode of Game of Thrones, "The Dance of Dragons".  And although they saw an increase, from the previous weeks episode, it was just by a hair.  "The Dance of Dragons" was viewed by 7.14 million people during its initial airing, an increase of 140,000 people, or just 2%. 

I had expected to see "The Dance of Dragons" bring in closer to 8 million viewers.  But still its nice to see an increase in the viewership.  The only question this raises is whether or not the finale will bring in a higher number than the, record breaking, premiere for this season.  Looking at previous seasons, the season finale episodes have always preformed the best.  

What do you think though?  Are you surprised with the viewership for "The Dance of Dragons"?  And do you think the final episode will break the record as the most viewed episode of the season?
