OK…enough time has passed and everyone with an Internet connection now knows that the evil boy-king Joffrey Baratheon was killed on this past Sunday’s episode of GAME OF THRONES. Now all attention turns to just whodunnit? Like any good murder mystery there are a ton of suspects so I have gone thorough the list to see who had cause to see Joff dead and the likelihood that they would actually do it. This is an adaptation so it’s quite possible Benioff & Weiss could throw us a curveball and change the identity of the culprit for the TV show which would be kinda cool.
The most obvious suspect (and the one getting blamed for it…thanks, Cersei!) but this is really not his style. Tyrion hates what a monster Joffrey became but the little bastard was still family and Tyrion loves his family even though the majority of them treat him like garbage. But Joffrey was piling on Tyrion really hard as of late (reaching new heights of obnoxious at the wedding reception) and it was only a matter of time before he tried to have someone kill Tyrion I am sure.
