Few might have cheered for the death of a character, in Game of Thrones or any other series, like they cheered for the timely death of Joffrey Baratheon.

The Lion and the Rose almost feels like a fanservice from the GOT writers for killing all our favorite characters in the previous seasons. Viewers are left in awe and mostly joyful as Joffrey quickly chokes to his death in his mother’s lap.
