Game of Thrones is one of the best shows on TV and has been for a long time. This means the show has had consistently excellent ratings, and it’s next to impossible to find an episode with bad reviews. However, Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3, “The Long Night”, premiered this Sunday, and the mixed reactions have pushed the episode down to some of the lowest ratings, ever. Read on!

Now, you might remember just that one Game of Thrones episode that got a lot of hatred. It was Season 5, episode 6, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”, which is infamously remembered for the Sansa Stark marriage scene and it is the lowest ranked Game of Thrones episode ever, standing in at a weak 57% on Rotten Tomatoes. “The Long Night” now has sunk to 75% at Rotten Tomatoes. While this is not as bad as 57%, it still makes the episode the lowest ranked one since Season 5, and the second lowest ranked Game of Thrones episode, ever. After “The Long Night” we have “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, at 77%.

Fans had many complaints with “The Long Night”, the biggest of which was that it was too dark to comprehend, speaking in terms of lighting. Many fans were also disappointed that Arya was the one to kill the Night King and that it seemed too easy for a villain with such an elaborate set-up to be killed so easily.

This episode also is a record low for Miguel Sapochnik, Game of Thrones’ speciality battle episodes director, who usually has very high ranks with his episodes. It’s also sort of a shame because Game of Thrones has a whopping 22 episodes that are rated at 100%.
