Game of Thrones followers can hardly contain their excitement and they have good reason to feel that way.
On Sunday, they finally witnessed the moment they were looking forward to for the past three years when the cruel and sadistic King Joffrey Baratheon breathed his last, choking on his greed and arrogance.
For many, the second episode of the fourth season – The Lion and the Rose – is the best yet to come out of the series.
As a callback to the third season’s game-changing episode The Rains of Castamere, more commonly referred to as “The Red Wedding”, fans dubbed the latest installment “The Purple Wedding” – based on the color of Joffrey’s face at the time of his death.
Here are some of the most interesting reactions from the internet:
