I recently purchased Game of Thrones season 2 and have been trying to catch up on the series before season 3 airs on HBO. I’m reminded just how great the show’s been, but also just how frustrating some of the plot lines have been. I’m half way through season 2 as I write this and I can’t help but feel a little like the Grandson from The Princess Bride as I watch. In this scenario, I imagine George R.R. Martin as Grandpa.
“Stop Grandpa, you’re reading it wrong.”
“What? What do you mean?”
“Who kills Prince Joffrey in the end? Is it Robb? Is it Sansa, who?”
“No one kills him. He lives.”
“Jesus, Grandpa, what did you read me this for!?”
I truly don’t know how Game of Thrones will turn out (no spoilers please) but I swear if Joffrey doesn’t end up with his head on a pike, I may have to hire a brute squad.
