The numbers are in for the season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, and they are outstanding. "Mother's Mercy" was viewed on its initial airing by 8.11 million people, breaking the record, initially set by the season 5 premiere, as the most watched episode of Game of Thrones.
With the way the season has been going, in terms of its viewership, I wasn't sure that "Mother's Mercy" would be able to reach this milestone. But, as history has shown us, the season finale of Game of Thrones always comes through with a record breaking viewership.
