The final episode of the ABC’s The Killing Season has pulled in 979,900 metro viewers according to OzTam official figures.

The third and final episode of the ABC doco was the sixth most watched program of last night.

The episode featured Rudd saying it was “entirely possible” that he leaked an account of a meeting where Gillard had opposed paid parental leave in cabinet and disapproved a rise in the pension.

The final episode also featured Julia Gillard gracefully accepting her defeat to Rudd in 2013, as well as footage of Gillard having a drink with friends before leaving The Lodge.

The conclusion of the three part documentary finished with Alan Milbourn, a former British Labour MP, Gillard brought over to help in 2010.

“The hard question that the Australian Labor Party has to ask itself is this: How is it possible that you win an election in November 2007 on the scale that you do, with the goodwill that you have, with the permission that you’re gifted by the public, and you manage to lose all that goodwill, to trash the permission, and to find yourself out of office within just six years?” Milbourn said.

“I’ve never seen anything quite like it in any country, anywhere, anytime, in any part of the world. No one can escape blame for that, in my view.”

Not only was this the final instalment of the doco, it was also the final instalment of the #killingseason drinking game on Twitter:
