Game of Thrones's third episode of its eighth and final season premiered on April 28th. With the "The Long Night" featuring the long-awaited battle sequence with the White Walkers, the episode set a new single-night record for the series. HBO has stated that across all platforms (including HBO Now and HBO Go), the episode amassed 17.8 million viewers.
Because somehow things got even crazier than words could ever describe in this particular episode.
To get the jaw-dropping visual images of the battle against the Army of the Dead and dragon scenes, the HBO series spent a whole lot of time and money on the episode. Shooting the battle over an exhausting 55 nights, the 82-minute episode will go down as the more expensive episode in TV history.
