And like the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of the avatar begins anew.
"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."
On the Luteces & Burial at Sea
I was cruising through the Burial at Sea tag and I kept seeing a lot of the same complaints/confusion over the Luteces’ role and what was revealed about them in Burial at Sea (particularly Episode Two) so I thought I’d try to address it.
Spoilers for Burial at Sea Episode Two under the cut.
