If last night’s Game of Thrones episode “The Lion and the Rose” is still burning a hole in your DVR, you might want to bounce off of this spoiler-heavy page right this instant, because we’re totally going to talk about that super important and shocking thing that happened that has caused you to completely avoid social media for the time being.
We’re talking, of course, about the Purple Wedding; an awkward and painful affair that took a total 180 into joy and glee in its final moments when King Joffrey finally lay dead in his mother’s arms having choked to death on his own vomit.
