Don’t Tell Me You Were Surprised

SPOILER ALERT: if you have not seen last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” then stop reading now. For the rest of you, well what did you expect? It’s farewell to King Joffrey Baratheon, poisoned by one of the many guests at his wedding who wanted him dead – and who now lies in his mother’s arms, red-eyed and twitching his last. Killer by remote control, wimp in king’s clothing, sadistic coward without compunction, we shall never see his like again. I will miss the little bastard: no one else on the program is as much fun to hate. But — and this is for all of you who get too attached to any of the characters, Jon Snow especially — you must always remember that before show and the books run their course, everyone gets whacked. It’s just a matter of how and when.
