When I read the telling of Joffreys death in the books, I was fine with it.  But in the death scene we saw last night, actor Jack Gleason was finally able to convey the truth behind Joffrey and (most of) his cruelty:  that deep down he was just a scared boy. A scared boy who was given unlimited power and used it to become a bully since he hadn't been adequately parented by his real father, Jaime Lannister, and the father her thought was his own in Robert Baratheon.

Disagree.  He wasn't a 'scared little boy' - he was a complete and utter sociopath.  Rotten and evil to his core, even if he sometimes was unsure of himself, he had no regard for any person on that show - NO ONE.  Talking about cutting Ned Stark's head off with his daughter sitting 5 feet away... tormenting his uncle, killing at will...

I didn't see a single redeeming thing about him, and he was designed that way.

Indeed.  Good job!

I need to get better about maxing out my games.  I never seem to be able to do it.

Why the **** are you trying to make something out of this?!?!?

For some reason it was really just troubling to watch someone choke to death.  I had no qualms about the scene at the end of last week's season premiere.  The Hound taking on 5 guys in the Inn was an amazing scene.  And I actually thought that when Arya had her revenge on Polliver, who had killed her friend in season 2, that was a moment of justice. 

My *momentary* pang of sympathy was about anybody choking.


Whoa there.  Was I 'making something' of it?  I thought it was a reasonable discussion of the sympathy or lack thereof that one might feel for one of the most loathed characters of all time.

I'm thinking about the next 'holy ****' moment non-readers will flip out on.  There's certainly a few more coming this season.


-Cersei and Jaime ******* over Joffery's rotting corpse
-Battle at the Wall and Stannis' arrival
-Red Viper vs the Mountain
-Tyrion killing Shae and then Tywin
-Lady Stoneheart


These are all big moments that I'm looking forward to as well.  This season is going to be big.

The three Targets I cleaned out a week or two back all re-stocked over the weekend with the newest wave.  :)

I was able to score two more Stormtroopers and my buddy got the third. Hoping the log jam has now abated and these will resume selling through as they were before that whole Greedo/Leia debacle.

Luckily one of the Stormtroopers I found had decent paint apps around the eyes, the other was as bad as the first one I bought. Seems to be a real challenge for them.

Glad to be done with this wave more or less, will be hard to resist buying more Stormies if I see 'em though.

Don't get me wrong:  Joffrey has done the most hateful things imaginable during the course of the series.  At some point it may come to light that he was responsible for something VERY big, but I don't know when or how that might get revealed.  Karma is a bitch, and the horrific nature of his death was well deserved.  He's been a sadistic little bastard ever since we saw the incident at the Inn at the Crossroads where Arya threw his sword into the river.  And his tormenting of Tyrion during this episode alone was unforgiveable.  But for me, it's tough to watch ANYONE choke and die like that, even if it is a television show.

This show must be very difficult for you to watch then, seeing someone getting their head cut off or worse every 5 minutes for 4 seasons now...

I had the biggest **** eating grin when that was all going down (I knew what was coming) and was trying to hide it from my wife.  She was more shocked by Joffrey's death (she expected him to die at some point, just not at the wedding and like that) than the Red Wedding.

Loved the way they did the dwarfs, slightly different from the books, but effective.
