GOT IV, 2: Big Spoiler!

The King is dead! Long Live the King... I don't think so!

Diminutive but determined Arya Stark crossed the first name from her prayer kill list a week ago, while last evening I, and I daresay several million more of the Brotherhood without Banners, removed the name of King Joffrey Baratheon from our own lists of those who must die!

Joffrey Baratheon

It was one of the most ghastly deaths-by-poison I've ever seen... and all the more satisfying because it happened to King Joffrey after he'd spent an inordinate amount of time tormenting and humiliating his uncle Tyrion Lanister in the throne room in front of his royal wedding guests.

It was wonderful!

Topping my own prayer kill list now is Ramsay Snow, bastard son of Roose Bolton.

It was probably the largest collective cheer heard 'round TV viewerdom since Detective Norman Buntz popped Police Commissioner Fletcher Daniels in the square in the squash in the finale of "Hill Street Blues" almost 30 years ago.

Good reference! I concur.

My doctor's office was abuzz Monday morning with this episode.

I daresay it was not the only place... Joffery was likely at the top of everyone's death prayer list.

It's interesting to note that most of the other major villainous characters over the four seasons have evolved into not-so-bad; cf: "Kingslayer" Jamie Lannister, Sandor "The Hound" Clegane.
