The sixth season finale set a "Thrones" ratings record, and the show averaged 23.3 million viewers per episode last season (including on-demand and streaming data).

History suggests "Game of Thrones" will have a hard time improving yet again.

When asked how he felt when he discovered he was potentially in line for the Iron Throne himself, Kit told Access Hollywood: "We know who his mum is but we don't know who his dad is..." Her brother/lover Jaime is pictured leading troops into battle and she's still firmly on the Iron Throne in scenes shared so far.
