Game of Thrones

  • TV Show

In last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, King Joffrey Baratheon finally ended his reign of terror by ingesting poisoned wine during his royal wedding.

While most fans of the show couldn’t wait for the day Joffrey met his end, the horrific manner in which he died — by violently choking to death — was so disturbing, many viewers were almost conflicted about the young King’s passing…almost. The one person who didn’t find it all that disturbing was the actor who played Joffrey, Jack Gleeson, as illustrated by a photo on his Instagram. The image shows Gleeson rolling his eyes, pointing to Joffrey’s white, bloody-nosed corpse on the screen, with a smirk.

Perhaps he is mocking his character’s death or just thrilled to be retiring from acting now that his story arc is over. Check out the photo below:
