After four long years, fans of the hit HBO fantasy show can finally celebrate one of the deaths in ‘Game of Thrones’. After gasping over Ned Stark, weeping over Drogo and full blown crying after Robb Stark and the gang, we can finally say ding-dong, the dong is gone! Yes, Viserys Targaryen suffered a spectacular golden shower and Mirri Maz Duur went up in flames but there was one death that has been on everyone’s minds and last night, King Joffrey finally bit the dust.

He has tormented your favourite characters for years, has made his mother slap him and made actor Jack Gleeson give up acting so it’s unsurprising that the internet has been cheering for what’s been called ‘the Purple Wedding’. And to get into the mood, here are 18 reasons we’re happy that the little shit is off the throne… Carly-Ann Clements

 

He killed Ned Stark

And he reminds you of it all the time

He effectively killed Robb Stark

And made you feel bad for Sansa even though you hate her

Plus he killed Ros: the only prostitute you really liked in the whole show

He really liked to state his position

Like, a lot

It actually got so embarrassing that even his ‘loyal’ subjects got annoyed with him

Even his uncle couldn’t take it

Talking of uncles, he was really mean to his daddy-uncle… or his duncle if you will

And he’s preventing this dude from being King

He’s a coward

And he’s sarcastic

And was behind this terrible awkwardness

But most of all

It’s

And you know what they say, ain’t no party like a Westeros party because at a Westeros party someone dies!
