But even without the pirates, the army of viewers for the HBO hit has never been bigger.
In fact, the audience of the season 5 premiere has broken the show's own record!
The show averaged almost EIGHT MILLION viewers Sunday night, an impressive gain of 800,000 over its previous most-watched episode (last season's Mockingbird — you know, the one where [SPOILER] gets [SPOILER] by [SPOILER]).
