1.43 Million Viewers
Looks like Eye of the Storm closed out the season with 1.43 million viewers. Not the best in viewer numbers this season but still pretty good considering the previous season finale numbers: Season 1A 1.42 million viewers, Season 1B 0.98 million viewers, and Season 2 1.15 million viewers.
Season three appears to have done amazingly well considering the average viewer numbers: Season One 1.03 million viewers, Season Two 1.09 million viewers, and Season Three 1.51 million viewers. May the numbers only continue to grow.
And we have to remember this will not include streaming.
Top Ten Episodes by the Numbers:
Are we speculating as to whether or not Geillis is telling Young Ian the truth about the blood being that of a goat? I'm not of the mind to believe her.
According to Matt Roberts the idea of the bloodbath was inspired by Dracula who was said to have bathed in the blood of young people to remain young. I vote that wasn't goats blood.
Lotte Verbeek told EW that she believes Geillis is truly evil.
"Is Geillis truly evil?
Yeah, totally. That was a big change for me. I don’t believe so much in good and evil. I feel like we all have opposing forces within ourselves, and Geillis is exactly that. We know that she’s killed her husband, but we never really see her do the act of killing. So I think in a way, that helped the audience to relate to her, or to at least believe her. But in this season, all of a sudden she’s killing these young boys. And she’s bathing in the blood that she says is goat’s blood. But maybe it’s from the young boys. And so, all of a sudden it’s a bigger challenge to get people to [relate to] me. This sequence, she’s just gone nuts, like time has played a toll and now she’s actually kind of losing her s— a little bit."

What do you think? Is Geillis truly evil?
A great little teaser which doesn't really give anything away.
I adore that the water scenes were actually Cait and Sam in the water. It was a beautiful sequence and so much like the books and yet perfect for the show!
I'm not sure what happened. It seemed last weeks poll wasn't working properly so if you encountered a problem with the voting I'm truly sorry. I've taken it back to episode 311 which was our last winner. So now you can vote between the last three episodes for your favorite.
Voting closes Saturday at midnight. I'll let you know on Sunday which episode you voted for as the best episode throughout Season Three.
1.51 Million Viewers
Looks like upswing in viewer numbers continues with The Bakra. 1.51 million viewers isn't bad at all though not in the top 5. However, that will put it in the top 10 episodes
