Well, Game of Thrones fans we rewarded tonight. Social media “ruined the surprise” for me a few hours beforehand, so it was interesting to watch the episode culminate with Joffrey’s death. They gave us glimpses of his humanity throughout the episode (scraps to the poor, graciously receiving Tyrion’s book, etc.), so I thought maybe the show was setting us up to feel conflicted about Joffrey’s death, or that it would somehow not be satisfying.
