Game of Thrones is like Daenerys' growing dragons, getting bigger and more intimidating each day. And with the third episode of Season 3, the HBO series broke its own ratings record, hitting a whopping 4.7 million viewers in its first showing and 5.8 million viewers for the whole evening — and this episode didn't even have a nippelectomy!

And if the peer pressure isn't enough, there's always this.
