Yeah, if ever there was someone who deserved to die horribly it was that psycho, couldn't forgive him for executing Ned Stark, however necessary it may have been to the plot development. But I knew he bought it long before I saw the episode. I've read the books. It gets worse, lots more major characters die, and sometimes I think George R. R. Martin needs a smack upside the head with a 2x4.

Joffrey had earned the distinction of being the most hated person on television. As for who did it, this is going to be the biggest thing since "who shot JR?".

I shall heroically resist the temptation to reveal that. But if you think about it, it's pretty obvious...

Actually there is no shortage of characters with good reason to wish Joffrey dead. I don't think it was Tyrian, but Sansa did hand him the cup didn't she?

Game of Thrones is another example of a successful serial drama that all follow the same formula. Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, Game of Thrones, all high budget soap operas with lots of violence and T & A.

Whoever watches that tripe needs to be chucked into the oubliette at Warwick Castle and left to starve to death.

???? and they say the King is dead, he appears to have survived under a new name. King Blackleaf (Blackheart)

They could replace it with with the 'Game of Drones'

They can never compare , eh? I'll read the book after. I can never watch a movie or show if I've read the book. But I can read the book after having watched the movie or show.

People like tripe. I see it at the grocery store.

No, it's all fantasy. From the wiki:

The series, set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, interweaves several plot lines. The first follows the members of several noble houses in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the rising threat of the impending winter and the mythical creatures of the North; the third chronicles the attempts of the exiled last scion of the realm's deposed dynasty to reclaim the throne. Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores the issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, civil war, crime, and punishment. It is the most recent big-budget work to have contributed to the popularity of the fantasy genre in mainstream media.

One of the characters did something like that to a few people.

so, did you stand the whole time or is it not your cup of tea?

I do believe the fist season's first few episode they attempted to hook viewers by showing lots of boobs. They don't show them as often now...

While true a lot of the characters and some of the events were modelled after actual events/people. The author has said that he used Caligula as a model for Joffrey. Also he got inspiration for the 'red wedding' from a similar even that happened in Scotland 5-600 years ago.

They didn't add all the sex and nudity just to attract viewers. That stuff is all over the books and the descriptions are a lot more explicit than what the tv show does. Same with the violence. There's still usually at least one naked or almost naked woman in every episode. In the season premier last week there were at least three.

Even if you haven't read the books you can figure it out if you watch the scene carefully again. There are little hints and a few other things that more or less show who did it.

Great, you know what this means, eh? I'm no longer noticing when people are naked.

It's got a pretty complicated plot line, especially if you have no background in the books like me. You really have to start it from the beginning, even then you will find yourself scratching your head often asking "Now who is this again?" I'm a bit of a TV nut and this series is right up there on my "can't get enough" list. HBO is pretty consistent in their ability to crank out a successful series.

Are you more of a "Dog the Bounty Hunter" type?

same here. I get hooked a couple shows and I become addicted. I will often wait until a series has several seasons and then watch it on netflix so I can get my fix. Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black (can't wait for season 2!) Walking Dead. Sopranos (waited a few years after it's completion to even start this one. I needed to the hype to die down in order to appreciate it) It's ridiculous. It's almost a disability. lol

haha its starting to have that effect on me. There is so much nudity and sex in the show it becomes normal or nothing special. There have even been a few sex scenes in which the people are having a casual conversation or exposition. I don't quite know why I imagine that would make it a lot less fun.

I loved watching Joffrey's capillaries burst...however, he was a wonderful evil being...don't know who will match him now and I will miss hating him.

As for who did it, I believe it might be his new wife's mother or whoever that old dowager is. She was giving her regrets to Sansi just before hand about how terrible it was to kill someone at a wedding.

Wonderful character development, great casting, well written.

Ramsey, the guy who has been torturing Theon for more than a season could hold his own against Joffrey when it comes to evil. Probably even surpass him. He is extremely sadistic and doesn't put any effort into hiding it. Fortunately he will never have a crown or power. The first five minutes of this weeks episode are a good example of how screwed up he is.

As for who poisoned Joffrey, if you pay close attention to the scene you will see that your theory is correct. The preview for next weeks episode back it up too. In the books there was someone else heavily involved in the plan but he hasn't been seen yet this season. I wonder if they'll be changing that. They are starting to get a little further away from the books now compared to the earlier seasons.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, excellent... thanks so much...the reason I had also thought her was because they knew he was a monster prior to, and this young girl is the polar opposite and there is no way she would have survived being near him let alone sleeping with him...so it had to be done before they reached the bedroom. He was such a sadist.

Ramsey is evil yes...cutting off body parts at a whim... the reason I loved Joffrey more was because of the interactions that it spawned from those around him.

My favourite character is Tyrion...he makes the show for me. I am afraid for him because Cersei was screaming to arrest him.

As for straying from the books, they will need to now. Just as Walking Dead does, it follows along but then diverts...that's important to allow for the best character development on screen.

I am not plot driven I am character driven so if the characters don't have depth I am done. That's why I love this show.

I will watch the show again. It was so lavish and there was so much going on at the wedding.

Did you know that "that old dowager" is played by Diana Rigg, most remembered for her role as Emma Peel in the original "Avengers" series ?
