"Game of Thrones" season 8 is getting more interesting with each passing episode. There are a total of four episodes of the season released so far. One of the highlights of this season was the battle of Winterfell where Arya Killed the Night King. According to the New York Times, 3x08 episode of the HBO series was the most viewed ever in the history of television. The record was set at 17.8 million unique viewers in a single evening (Sunday), a figure that exceeds the record set by "Game of Thrones" two weeks ago with the premiere of the eighth season.

Night King's return in 'Game of Thrones'

The Long Night was a great episode because it staged an incredible climax and found its most memorable moments in individual actions. In this episode, fans witnessed the dance of the dragons in the moonlight, up there where the battle is consumed among the true giants of this series. And, again, if there was a prize for bravado and the weight taken on the battle against the undead, Arya Stark and her sinuous, lethal motions would surely deserve a gold medal. There is no doubt that the Battle of Winterfell will remain one of the most memorable episodes of the series.

Fans are now asking whether the Night King and his army make a return or not. The answer is that there might be a possible comeback by the dead army.

According to BGR, in the episode titled “Oathkeeper,” fans saw the Night King handled the infant child of a late wildling. The villain touched the child, and we saw the child’s eyes turn blue. The child seems to turn into something else with the Night King’s touch. It means there are chances that the dead creature might appear again in the show.

Numbers by HBO

According to data provided to NYT by HBO, this figure includes viewing from the network's digital channels, such as HBO Now. HBO has also reported that to date the first episode of the last season was reviewed by a total of 38 million viewers, a figure, to say the least, is staggering. So far, with three episodes aired, "Game of Thrones" Season 8 had an average of 32.8 million viewers.

Before the battle in Episode 5, we return to focus on this transitional episode that has focused so much on the characters, their relationships and their moves in this final throne game. Arya rejects Gendry's marriage proposal (inevitably), why not, she is not and never will be a lady, and her place will never be in a castle. And in fact, she rides south, because apparently, she hasn't really forgotten her hate list and intentions of revenge against Cersei.

Meanwhile, the cliffhanger, entitled "The Last of the Starks," left open the start of the highly anticipated battle between Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, and the most ardent fans are trying to guess what will happen in the next episode. One thing looks sure, and that's that the upcoming episode is going to be epic.
