Game of Thrones – Season 4: Episode 2 “The Lion and The Rose”

When I’m not feeling well I watch tv or movies which means I end up watching a lot of tv and movies.  One of my favorite series is the HBO series Game of Thrones which just started season 4.  Episode 2 aired tonight and it is by far by favorite episode of all of them so far because my least favorite character died!

*****************************SPOILER ALERT****************************************

So, the wedding takes place between the bratty King Joffrey Lannister and the lovely and virginal Queen Margery Tyrell-Baratheon-Lannister who has previously been married to Renly Baratheon but he had no interest in being married to her.  He was killed and their marriage was never consummated so she was freed to marry Joffrey.

During the reception, Joffrey is his extraordinarily bratty self and while partaking of the wedding pie, chokes and is poisoned to death.  Of course, Cersie blames the whole thing on her brother, Tyrion Lannister, who Joffrey was picking on at the time.

Since don’t read the books I am completely dependent upon the show.  I am not a fan of the fantasy genre of books because I can’t keep all the names and locations straight and George R.R. Martin has tons of locations and characters to keep track of

On repeated watching, I am now convinced that it was the pie that was poisoned. Joffrey takes a drink of wine before the pie is even brought out and is fine then the pie is brought out and he is the only one who eats any of it.
