If you STILL haven’t seen last week’s epic episode of Game of Thrones, well, you really shouldn’t be on the internet, should you? Kudos if you haven’t yet been spoiled. Now go watch it. Meaning NOW, and don’t come back to this post until you do. Because this week we have a veritable giant pie full of featurettes about the episode.
Okay, now that everyone’s caught up, how do you feel about what happened? You’ll see in the Inside the Episode and Anatomy of a Scene featurettes below that the intent was for us to feel at least momentarily sorry for Joffrey and Cersei.
That didn’t happen for me. Joffrey was not someone I loved to hate. I just hated him, period. I could feel the sneer of distaste creeping around my face every time he was on the screen. It wasn’t a good look for me. Good riddance.
