The fifth season of Game of Thrones has suffered from a constant loss of viewership since its, record breaking, premiere. The last episode of Game of Thrones, " The Gift" saw this season at an all time low with 5.4 million viewers on its initial airing. Making "The Gift" the first episode of Game of Thrones to drop into the 5 million's since 2013.
However with the latest episode, "Hardhome" it looks like the season is finally getting back on track with its numbers. "Hardhome" was watched, during its initial airing, by 7 million people. An extremely impressive 30% jump in viewership, from "The Gift".
Now who can say what caused this increase in viewership, but whatever it may be, it's good to see the show getting back on track with its numbers. I'm sure we'll see a constant increase in viewership over the next 2 episodes. Possibly seeing another record breaking season finale.
