Ding Dong, Joffrey Baratheon is Dead!



I am writing this at 12:30 AM in the morning because I have just stayed up late to watch the new Game of Thrones episode in which Joffrey Baratheon dies.

How does he kick the bucket you might ask?

Poison. I know this already because I read the books, but I have been waiting for years to see tonight's scene where Joffrey dies.

Season 4, episode 2, does not disappoint. :)

I liked it so much a re-winded it and watched it over again.

Now I want to explain why all of us (and I do mean all of us) hates Joffrey Baratheon so much.

#1. Evil.
#2. Skinny punk.
#3. Spoiled rotten.
#4. Blonde Aryan looks.
#5. Uncontrollable temper.
#6. A bit dimwitted and ignorant.
#7. Willful.
#8. No sense of morality (he is basically a psychopath).
#9. Because he is the guy who sent the cutthroat to kill Bran, hoping to frame his uncle Tyrion for it.
#10. When things go wrong he blames everyone but himself.
#11. Reckless.
#12. Vicious.
#13. Cruel.
#14. Bully.
#15. Irrational.
#16. Evil sneer. (He isn't just evil, he sneers in an evil way.)
#17. When he was little he cut open a pregnant cat and cut out the unborn kittens.
#18. Bullies his younger brother Tommen.
#19. If Joffrey was an animal he would be a weasel. Just like Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series.
#20. Joffrey is the kind of spoiled preppy brat who would hire an essay writing service to write his essays for him. And guaranteed, he would be studying at Oxford, Princeton, Yale, Harvard or some other prestigious university he didn't actually deserve to go to and only got in because of money.

Quotes about Joffrey (from the books)

Jon Snow: Joffrey is truly a little shit.

Robert Baratheon: I am sorry for your girl, Ned. Truly. About the wolf, I mean. My son was lying, I’d stake my soul on it. My son ...

Robert Baratheon:  I have dreamed of giving up the crown. Take ship for the Free Cities with my horse and my hammer, spend my time warring and whoring, that’s what I was made for. The sellsword king, how the singers would love me. You know what stops me? The thought of Joffrey on the throne, with Cersei standing behind him whispering in his ear. My son. How could I have made a son like that, Ned?

Tywin Lannister: Her son needs to be taken in hand before he ruins us all.

Tyrion Lannister: Not Robert the Second. Aerys the Third.

Tywin: That loose tongue of yours will be your undoing.
Tyrion: You should have let Joff tear it out.
Tywin: You would do well not to tempt me.

Tyrion: Joffrey would have been a worse king than Aerys ever was. He stole his father's dagger and gave it to a footpad to slit the throat of Brandon Stark, did you know that?
Jaime: I ... I thought he might have.
Tyrion: Well, a son takes after his father. Joffrey would have killed me as well, once he came into his power. For the crime of being short and ugly, of which I am conspicuously guilty.

Brienne: Joffrey was your...
Jaime: My king. Leave it at that.
Brienne: You say Sansa killed him. Why protect her?
Jaime: Because Joff was no more to me than a squirt of seed in Cersei's cunt. And because he deserved to die.

Cersei: Joffrey had no love for Robb Stark, but the younger boy was nothing to him. He was only a child himself.
Jaime: A child hungry for a pat on the head from that sot you let him believe was his father.
