When the season premiere set a ratings record on Easter Sunday, I predicted the show would climb to new heights in the coming weeks (though didn’t expect it to happen this soon). EW’s recap for the episode, titled “Walk of Punishment,” is here. We also posted an interview with producers and actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on the episode’s shocking final moments.
Meanwhile, HBO’s second season premiere of Veep was down from its series premiere last year. Veep had 1.2 million viewers, down 14 percent. Across two plays the episode totaled 1.5 million viewers.
