I have nowvread book 1-8 twice and each time I completely lost interest. He should have made it an 8 book series.

For Joffrey that one minute stretches on forever. That is his hell.

But that little bastard was so evil that it was far too good for him to die so quickly. It is rare that I hate a character so much. But he just makes my blood boil.

And he died in the correct way. Agonizingly. Slowly. His entire world became the inability to draw air in. He panicked. Sound faded, color faded. All the pain and misery he inflicted was returned to him 1000 fold. For us his death was too short. For him, he experienced choking on his own blood.

That is what I meant by his eternity and hell. He died with the fear and panic and hopelessness he gave to others. Its the good time/horrible time dynamic. When you are having fun, it is too short. When you are miserable, it drags. It dragged for Joffrey.

good, then we won't have to waste any more time on his poor man's frodo baggins story arc

Agreed. Of all the storylines going on, Bran's is the only one I really don't care about. I just think he along with Jon is going to wind up being one of the dragon riders with Danaerys.

Honestly, I'm just glad that they finally got the Purple Wedding storyline out of the way. There are a ton of storylines that have just been idling while waiting for this particular thread to conclude. A lot of dominoes should start falling in the coming weeks.

It is Storm of Swords. This is where Martin breaks everything. Feast of Crows is when he picks up the pieces.

So are they in "Storm of Swords" or "Feast of Crows" right now?

That was satisfying to see that little b**** go down. I would have done it a long time ago, but included his mother in the game.

That episode just confirmed how terrible of an actress Lena Headey can be. Cersei was terrible there. In the book she rivaled Catelyn Stark. In this episode it seemed more like Tyrion ate the last donut which she wanted.

Also, I don't know what's going on with the Shae thing but I'm not liking it.

With all that said, Margaery Tyrell, Geoffrey, and Tyrion all were amazing at the wedding. Jack Gleeson was amazing in his role and had a huge part in advancing the series so I could see his death putting a damper on the ratings for a bit until Ramsey and Roose take the reigns as the people everyone loves to hate.

Yup, loved how that piece of necklace was missing (just like in the book). Figured it was another thing for us readers to sit back and enjoy.

Lena Headey has been a disappointment to me as Cersei since the series began. She's not a rage and hate filled firestorm like she is in the books. Headey plays her like each loss is just a moderate disappointment that was completely expected and either it doesn't REALLY matter or she's going to pretend it didn't out of spite. She seems to whisper all her lines and is constantly hunched over like a cold old woman. I made this point earlier in the the thread and ever ripped on me saying she was perfect blah, blah, blah.

A co-worker of mine missed the show last night because her Mom got attacked by two pitbulls earlier that day. I called her to talk about the episode, and instead, we ended up talking about what had happened to her poor mother. I feel so terrible for her.

Then I realized that she would be wanting to watch the episode soon to take her mind off of all this... I had to send her a warning about the Ramsey Snow hunting scene... I can't even imagine how she'd take that scene right now...

So the crystal was poisonous? I figured it was the queens mother who somehow poisoned him but having not read the books I wasn't sure. I'm glad Joffrey is dead, have NEVER hated a character on a show that much. Wish it had been slower, but I agree with Archer. That one or 2 minutes of choking on his own blood probably seemed like a lifetime to Joffrey. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I think Headley plays the role well enough. Her anger and rage seems to me at least to be always JUST contained. Like it's taking all of her energy to not completely and utterly fly off the handle.

Her reaction to Joffrey choking out felt like the dam burst. I expect her to go full on crazy town. I do think that the actress who played Cat Stark did a better job of conveying the character. Headley's is not wrong, but not as forceful as it can be. At least to this point.

The Lannisters/Baratheons are what the Targaryens were. History is a cycle. Siblings popping off kids and the madness of inbred kings. King's Landing is as subtle about the corrupting influence of power as a nuclear bomb going off is considered a little warm.
