  1. Funny, when Joffrey died I was happy. When Tywin died, I was sad. When Tommen became king, I missed Joffrey. When Season 8 ended, I was happy Joffrey and Tywin died long before they could be ruined as well.

  2. 27:25 in indonesia there was this actress who played so well portraying scumbag character, the people hated her so freaking much when she went to the market people start throwing rotten eggs, tomatoes, etc at her.

  3. Is unreal to hear joffrey talk about emails and not being the most hatefull creature living ever. This guy here, super amazing actor, i may even have some residual hate towards him, but just because he's such a damm good actor.
