The cast of Game of Thrones
On Sunday, the second episode of "Game of Thrones" season 4 delivered another shocker, especially for the people who have not read the book.
The second episode featured the "Purple Wedding" of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). But it wasn't a happy ending for Joffrey, possibly the most-hated man in Westoros.
The king gets poisoned at his own wedding feast by an unknown person. Following the death, fans and viewers rejoiced and reacted on social networking site Twitter.
Here are top twitter reactions to the death of Joffrey:

Only at her wedding would Margaery not wear a dress with a plunging neckline. #GameOfThrones #GAMEOFTHRONESSEASON4 #PurpleWedding — Pieter J. Ketelaar 3 (@PieterJKetelaar) April 14, 2014
