She's the heir in the sense that her father (right?) was the mad king, but that was a popular uprising was it not? So isn't there some equal POV that Robert's bastard is the rightful heir here?
I'd say he and Stannis hold more ground than Khalisi in that regard... Of course, I lean to what you say though, Ed. I prefer Khalisi at this point because she's not insane, seems like a good leader, etc. But in that world her family was kicked out by everyone, more or less.
I love this show.
In the breakdown of the episode they really did want people to feel something for Joffrey, but for me it was purely good riddance... He was a monster, and horrific. His mother's one of the few equally horrible people, to me. Kid or no... I felt no sympathy.
I feel sympathy for the actor... Poor kid gets ragged on by people he meets, and that sucks. I sometimes just don't get fandom.
