The Season 4 premiere for HBO’s “Game of Thrones” had fans talking on Facebook. A lot of them.

“Two Swords” brought 1.9 million users to the social media site, which lead to 2.8 million “interactions” — Likes, Mentions and Shares — about the very bloody episode.

By comparison, the now-infamous “Red Wedding” episode garnered 1.5 million U.S. Mentions on Facebook.
