If someone tries to tell you there's going to be a secret Game of Thrones episode in February, tell them to relax; it's only a look behind the lens. There should (theoretically) be no dragons present.

On February 8th, HBO will air a behind the scenes special called "Game of Thrones: a Day in the Life." The half-hour special will take you through a single day of filming season five on three different sets in Ireland, Croatia, and Spain. The special will highlight the cast, sets, and production, but should give us a glimpse of what's coming later this spring in season five.

Looks like the conspiracy-theorists are rallying around this and fleshing out theories from this new piece of potential book-spoiling details from showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' knowledge about the final two books.

With the show and books starting to form more clearly defined story paths, do you think the HBO will spoil the book series before our faithful captain, George R.R. Martin can finally give us his ending?

HBO announced April 27 that 18.1 million viewers tuned in to all the various, legal ways to watch the April 12 season premiere. In a press release from the premium cable subscriber, they outlined that the show stacked up even better than the previous season.

GAME OF THRONES®' highly anticipated fifth season premiere conquered 18.1 million viewers to-date (Linear Plays + Live+7 DVR + HBO On Demand/HBO GO + HBO NOW). That's approximately 1.2 million viewers more when compared to last year's first episode after a similar period of time (16.9 million). GAME OF THRONES ultimately averaged a gross audience of 19.1 million viewers per episode for season 4, becoming the most watched season of an HBO series on record.



This announcement comes after the first four episodes of the new season leaked onto the Internet, allowing any pirate to circumvent HBO's paywall and watch at their leisure. The news also comes after HBO sent out numerous 'take down' notices to users of the live-streaming app Periscope and their distributions of Game of Thrones episodes.

So, Game of Thrones is somehow still growing. Even though every single character will surely die in any given episode. Welcome newbies!
