A new king and a new war ... episode 3 is full of death and schemes.
*The following article contains spoilers!!
Nothing can top the best, most satisfying murder on Game of Thrones, can it? Last week somebody finally put an end to King Joffrey's sadistic tyranny and the entire world loved watching him choke to death. However, the good is always followed closely by the bad because George R.R. Martin loves to torture his fans. Tyrion is being blamed for Joffrey's murder, but was he the one who killed him?
No, Tyrion is in fact innocent, because he's the best character on the show and of course he didn't do something that stupid. Unfortunately, no one will believe Tyrion and the rest of the season is pretty rough for our favorite imp. There's pretty solid evidence that he's responsible for killing the king and had the motive, but it wasn't him. (By the way, in the book, Shae comes back and testifies against him because she's a whore, literally and figuratively.)
We will find out soon enough who is behind the murder of King Joffrey and we'll give you a hint, it's not just one person.
In the meantime, we've been so consumed with the "Purple Wedding," we almost forgot about our favorite mother of dragons. This weekend, we will head back across the sea to Meereen, where Dany makes an attack on the biggest slave city in Westeros. She will also find out that all the way back in season 1, Jorah was feeding information to Varys and King's Landing before he became loyal to her. She does not take the news very well, as you can imagine.
Finally, episode 3 "Breaker of Chains," will include a royal funeral for our dear departed enemy and another war between the Wildlings and Castle Black. Basically, we can't wait because it sounds like everyone's dead and/or about to die.
Who do you think is responsible for King Joffrey's death?
