Well, this was a much bigger surprise to me than the Red Wedding, which I saw coming the second dumbass Robb married Jeyne/Talissa.

I loved it, loved the Tyrion blame and the escapes. Loved Cersei's grief and inability to do anything about it.

I was more concerned about Sansa than I was anyone else present.

Her chapter in the aftermath made me equally satisfied at Joffrey's death and helped cement the Great One as my favourite character. His emergence was more of an "oh shit!" moment for me than almost any other in the series.

I'm more excited for the trial if I'm honest. I'm looking forward to his death though.

The Purple Wedding was a great moment, but it didn't "even out" the Red Wedding IMO. I had both semi-spoiled from looking at the appendices, where it lists the Houses and Kings. "Why isn't there a King in the North anymore?" "Tommen!? What happened to Joffrey? Meh who cares!"

It was a nice moment, but I was hoping that Joffrey would meet a much messier end than being poisoned at his wedding.

My honest, no BS reaction. I was jumping with joy. Someone other than the Starks, had just been punched in the gut and I enjoyed every minute of it. Finally when Sansa was, on the ship and heading away from Kings Landing; I laughed for a good hour.... about the whole night.

I was disappointed at first. That's how the little dick went out? So cheaply compared to the Red Wedding? My brother pointed out that it's great, because of all these people at his wedding, only his mother cares he's dying. I was happy the jerk was dead and gone, though. That's what really matters, I guess!

It was one of the only happy weddings in westeros.

Exactly. From Neds death to the RW the Starks just cannot catch a break. At the very least though, even though it hasn't gotten better for the Starks it has gotten much worse for the Lannisters! :devil:

I was extremely pleased, to be perfectly honest.

Call me evil, but I smiled when that sadistic asswhole died.

It was the moment I was waiting for, both the event itself and the big bundle of joy I got from it, because I got so happy that I forgot about the RW.

I set the book down. Got in my car and drove to church for the first time since I was 10.

I was smiling all the way through Joffrey's choking and was so glad that the little bastard had finally died.

From the appendix in AFFC or ADWD then? Because the appendix in ASOS lists both Joff and Robb as king. And my reaction to the PW was like, no wait, is this happening, is it, it is! it is! YEAH BITCH. Though I am still uncertain whether another way of dying would hae been more satisfying.

I was still numb from the RW that had just happened, so I honestly found little joy in it.
