I mean, Joffrey, as monstrous as he is — and certainly he’s just as monstrous in the books as he is in the TV show, and Jack has brought some incredible acting chops to the role that somehow makes him even more loathsome than he is on the page — but Joffrey in the books is still a 13-year-old kid. And there’s kind of a moment there where he knows that he’s dying and he can’t get a breath and he’s kind of looking at Tyrion and at his mother and at the other people in the hall with just terror and appeal in his eyes—you know, “Help me mommy, I’m dying.” And in that moment, I think even Tyrion sees a 13-year-old boy dying before him. So I didn’t want it to be entirely, “Hey-ho, the witch is dead.” I wanted the impact of the death to still strike home on to perhaps more complex feelings on the part of the audience, not necessarily just cheering.

Harry: I was sitting next to her in the read-through for episode 2 when she’s getting rid of Nymeria, her wolf. And she just started weeping in a read-through! And I said, “Are you alright?” And she was like, “Yeah. I hate doing that scene.” I need to step up, man!

If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret.

Original

A raven flies from the north to the sea
A dragon whispers her name in the east

The watcher waits on the northern wall
A daughter picks up a warrior’s sword

A brother bound to a love he must hide
The younger’s armor is worn in the mind

A cold iron throne holds a boy barely grown
And now it is known
A claim to the prize, a crown laced in lies
You win or you die

My problem with the people who complain about CM Punk chants is that it’s inherently hypocritical. They’ll say that it’s disrespectful at nauseum but not bat an eye when they chant for Chris Jericho, or interrupt promos with WHAT every three seconds, or just boo someone whose job entails for them to be a good guy. They’ll chant for the announcers and ring crew while two people are wrestling but the moment Punk’s name is even barely heard, the whiney side of this website blows a fucking gasket as if the sky were falling and their world had been shattered. 

Should they be chanting for him? Probably not, but the great thing about wrestling is that the crowd has fun. If chanting random things at random people when they’re a bit bored is what gives them that sense of joy, let ‘em have it. Why does it matter? If you want super respectful crowds that bad go watch Japan stuff where they just sit quietly and clap every now and then.
