Game of Thrones season 4 episode 2 was Top#1. The episode was written by the own R.R.Martin and was absolutely thrilling and interesting.

The hated king Joffrey is killed, and you know: The King is Dead Long live the King!


Game of Thrones. The King Joffrey

But who will be the new king?

If we follow the logic of monarchical succession, the new king should be his brother Tommen Baratheon. Oficially, Tommen is the third son of Robert Baratheon and Cersei Lannister. But in fact he is, as his siblings Joffrey and Myrcella, the result of the incest of Queen Cersei and her brother Jaime. Of course, in the books by R.R. Martin, Tommen inherits the Iron Throne and promises to Margaery Tyrell after the death of King Joffrey. We’ll see what will happen in episode 3, because Game of Thrones TV series is not following the books in a strict way.

Episode 2 finished with King Joffrey dying, and his mother, the queen Cersei, blaming the deed on Tyrion and Sansa. In the books, this is not very important because later, it’s revealed that the plot was organized by Olenna Redwyne and Petyr Baelish.

Joffrey was poisoned with wine on the first day of the 3rd Century since Aegon’s Landing.


Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell

In the books, when Jaime Lannister (his real father) returns to King’s Landing, he makes love to Queen Cersei in front of the corpse. Afterwards, he is buried in the Great Sept of Baelor, and he is not mourned by anyone with the exception of this mother: he deserved his fate!

For example, Arys Oakheart thinks that the only good points of king Joffrey is that he was tall and strong for his age.

Fortunately, his brother Tommen is a lovable child, diametrically opposed to him.

We are waiting impatiently episode 3!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
