Joffrey Baratheon is Really Sick

Our immediate reaction to Game of Thrones, Season 2: Episode 1 — Joffrey “Baratheon” just gets worse and worse.

His levels of depravity seem to increase from episode to episode. Now he’s killing for no reason and even his mother (Cersei) is afraid of him. There are parallels to Schindler’s List’s Amon Goeth, played by Ralph Fiennes — and that is not a good comparison. Killing for no reason at all, based on moods, is sick sick stuff. Lannisters will be paying for this debt for a long, long, time.

Joffrey and Goeth share similar sadistic tendencies

Character Summary – Sansa Stark

Day 6 of our Character Summary focuses on Sansa Stark.

Sansa is the elder of the two daughters of Eddard and Catelyn Stark.  She is betrothed to Joffrey Baratheon, son of King Robert Baratheon and Queen Cersei Lannister.  Raised to be a lady in every way, she delights in the prospects of living a life as the future queen with her betrothed.  She and her sister, Arya, join their father to King’s Landing, giving her a chance to spend time with Joffrey.

Sansa, whose relationship with her sister, Arya, is already strained due to their current interests, further estranges herself from Arya when a circumstance that was clearly Joffrey’s fault leads Sansa to lie to the court about whose fault it was that Joffrey’s hand was injured.  Ironically, Sansa has to suffer the loss of her own direwolf because of it.  Still, her “love” for Joffrey is not deterred and she continues to try to gain his favor as well as the Queen’s.

After her father suffers an injury, he tells both her and Arya that they are to go to back home, but Sansa is so infatuated with Joffrey and confesses her love for him.  Oh, teenagers!  Of course, it doesn’t help Eddard that Joffrey had apologized to Sansa earlier and gave her a necklace as a gift – something that Joffrey was forced to do by his mother.  Unfortunately for the Stark family, the King falls ill and dies, which leaves Eddard in a bad situation.

Sansa’s betrothed now claims the throne and the Cersei Lannister convinces Sansa to write a letter to her brother Robb, who has taken over as Lord of the North, to come to King’s Landing and swear fealty to King Joffrey Baratheon.  Sansa believes that she can make things better.  Unfortunately, it is already too late, and she is forced to watch her father executed upon the order of King Joffrey.  Her opinion of Joffrey is quite changed after this point.

But being that she’s held hostage for the most part, she cannot do much, although the thought of pushing Joffrey off a bridge came to mind, but only up until someone stopped her for her own safety.

It seems Joffrey still plans on marrying her?

Sansa Stark is played by Sophie Turner.  This looks to be Sophie’s first major role in anything and she seems to be doing a fine job of playing a teenage girl with a mad crush.  I believe she plays the role quite convincingly, considering all the backlash that the character is getting, being that she clearly was infatuated with a psychotic spoiled brat.  But alas, Sophie is very understandable as well.  We have all been teenagers in love, I believe, and sometimes we fall for the wrong person only because they look handsome or beautiful in our eyes and we are quick to neglect the wrongdoings of their acts, if only they would just give us attention.  This is what I believe Sophie understands in her portrayal.  She’s not inherently bad, and Sophie plays Sansa that way, as it should be.

Character Summary – Joffrey Baratheon

Day 3 of our Character Summary Countdown to Season 2 of Game of Thrones.

Joffrey Baratheon is proclaimed son and heir of King Robert Baratheon and Queen Cersei Lannister, however, he was not treated kindly by the king, to whom he tried to gain favor from, even if he didn’t quite know the best way to go about doing it.

Joffrey is labeled as a handsome prince, however, his spoiled attitude and ruthless, sadistic trait was something to loathe and fear.  At one point, he cruelly challenges a young boy into swordfighting, knowing that the boy will not respond due to Joffrey’s standing, but ends up getting his hand injured by Arya Stark’s direwolf, Nymeria.  Unfortunately, he lied his way through it stating that he was attacked by Arya, the boy and the direwolf.  Although Sansa Stark, betrothed to Joffrey, was a witness during the fight, she claims to have no recollection of the incident and thus protects Joffrey’s lie.  The boy ends up getting killed and the direwolf escapes, and Sansa Stark’s direwolf is executed in Nymeria’s place.

The prince’s sadistic side becomes much more apparent when he is placed as King after King Robert’s death.  Once on the throne, he’s even worse than before with much more power that he even defies his mother’s advice and has Sansa’s father, Eddard Stark, executed for treason even though he promised that he would not do so if Eddard confesses to treason and swears fealty to Joffrey, which Eddard did.

It was also realized by Eddard that Joffrey, along with his siblings, are not the true heirs to the throne since they were not Robert Baratheon’s biological children, since Robert and his line were all of black-hair.  Joffrey and his siblings are all blond.  It comes out that the blond-haired children are the children of Cersei Lannister and her brother Jaime Lannister.  Ew!

No wonder this kid is all messed up!

Joffrey Baratheon is played by Jack Gleeson.  Not much is known about the actor, even his age is not listed, but this kid knows how to act and he does an amazingly excellent job of being every parents’ nightmare of a son.  Handsome, sly, yet sadistic, you wonder what Jack is like in real life and you hope that he’s quite the antithesis of his character.  I actually like to think that he is, because when thinking about some actors that I’ve met, the ones who have the baddest roles also seem to be the ones that have the sweetest disposition.
