Game of Thrones continues to set records.
The popular HBO series previously set a record for their largest audience of all-time with the episode "Eastwatch" which was watched by 10.7 million viewers.
The most recent episode "Beyond the Wall" was one of the longer episodes of the series and it was able to bring in 10.2 million viewers. It ties "The Spoils of War" as the second most-watched Game of Thrones episode of all-time.

This is good news for HBO considering this is the second episode to be leaked early. This episode appeared to be a brief uploading error by two of HBO's overseas divisions. The early leak didn't seem to hurt the show as it still continues to maintain a strong Sunday night audience.
The 80-minute season finale this Sunday is a very likely candidate to be one of the highest viewed episodes of all-time. The final episodes of the show always seem to draw a larger audience and this one should be no exception.
