The ratings may be dropping quicker than Winterfell’s temperature when the Dead arrived, but Game of Thrones Season 8 continues to grab more than a decent amount of eyeballs. Sunday’s episode ‘The Last of the Starks’ had the third highest initial viewership records in the show’s history, Variety reports. A total of 11.8 million people watched the 4th episode during its initial screening.

Episode 3 ‘The Long Night’ had 12.02 million viewers clocking in during its first screening, so the episode 4 numbers are down by about 200,000 views. These are initial numbers from just HBO and does not reflect the cumulative viewership over platforms. Of course, millions of others have been watching through pirated versions as well.

The highest spot in Game of Thrones initial viewership record is still held by Season 7 finale ‘The Dragon and the Wolf’. It was watched by 12.07 million people. But Season 8 episode 4 managed to equal the viewership record of Season 8 premiere episode ‘Winterfell’ and flew well past the numbers for episode 2 ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’.

Fans and Critics alike have expressed disappointment about how the final season is shaping up, but that is not reflected in viewership records. It seems people still want to know how the most popular and certainly the most hyped show in TV history will end.

New photo shows Naomi Watts in costume for Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

New photo shows Naomi Watts in costume for Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

Game of Thrones is over, and now it’s time for Bloodmoon. The Game of Thrones prequel has been under production for a while, with the pilot being ordered by HBO. We have been getting small bits of information about the show, mostly the locations. Today we have what is possibly the first look at one of the stars of the show, Naomi Watts, in her character costume for the show. Read on!

We don’t have character details yet, but Naomi Watts was known to be cast in a role that was said to be of “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.” Today, a fan posted a picture of the actress in what is possibly her Bloodmoon character costume. Take a look:

While it isn’t the highest quality picture, there is one glaring clue that hints at the authenticity of the picture. We know the prequel is filming in Northern Ireland, and we recently reported about filming also going on in at the Grotta del Turco, near Gaeta, Italy. This picture shows the signboard arc reading “Grotta del”, which means the photo is likely to be authentic.

She seems to have a very Cersei-like aura. George R. R. Martin recently revealed that the show doesn’t have Lannisters, at the beginning at least. If this is a hint that they show up later, there’s a good chance Naomi might be playing Lann the Clever, the founder of House Lannister. Martin has confirmed the Casterlys hold the Casterly Rock at the beginning of the show, so it’s not too far fetched that we might see House Lannister show up and take over.

One of the biggest names in the merch game is Funko, a company that makes the famous Pop! figurines and Game of Thrones has had a fair share of them. Now, we have what is possibly the last line for the show, as Funko has released Game of Thrones Season 8 Pop! figurines. Read on!

The designs were unveiled by Funko on their blog, and the lineup has two new designs, one is a Pop! Moment, which captures Daenerys and Jorah as he protected her in the Battle of Winterfell, before giving his own life for her. Take a look:

The second one is a Pop! figurine of Sansa Stark as Queen in the North, featuring her in her full Queen outfit, complete with the crown and everything. Check it out:

No other details are known at the moment, except that they’re coming soon. We are likely to see a possible presence of these at the San Diego Comic Con 2019, which is set to happen soon, with Game of Thrones scheduled for a panel. Prices are likely to compare to those of the regular offerings in the Pop! ranges.
