Who Killed Joffrey: A Game of Thrones Murder Mystery!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Readers of George R.R. Martin's epic-length A Song of Ice and Fire series knew that King Joffrey wasn't long for this world once he got engaged to Margaery Tyrell, but for millions of Game of Thrones fans, last night's "Purple Wedding" was something of a pleasant shock.

King Joffrey being his usual smug self. If only he knew what the day held in store for him.

It's rough to watch anyone go out in such an agonizing fashion but when the victim is an uber-douche like Joffrey Baratheon, you can't be help but wish he suffered more.

For those who missed it: King Joff was poisoned at his own wedding.

Moments earlier he'd dumped a goblet of wine on his Uncle Tyrion's head and further humiliated the fan favorite by appointing him the royal cup-bearer. 

So naturally, Tyrion became suspect number one in the moments after Joffrey choked and sputtered his way to an ugly end, (the look of utter hatred Joffrey shot Tyrion with his last breath made for one of our favorite GoT moments thus far), but surely the crafty imp would be smart enough not to poison the King in front of hundreds of witnesses. Right?

You can check out a full list of suspects in our full Game of Thrones season 4, episode 2 recap. Some believe Margaery Tyrell was responsible for slipping her new husband a mickey (she was certainly rocking the most badass wedding gown in recorded history), while others have taken notice of the fact that the drunkard Ser Dontos seemed to know what was about to go down before anyone else.

If you missed the episode or just want to relive the grisly end of one of TV's most hated villains you can watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic, and check out our gallery above to enjoy from the final moments of the wicked king.
