After the highly anticipated but still shocking death of King Joffrey from the last week's episode of Game of Thrones, another not surprising but disturbing even takes place in the latest episode of HBO's hit fantasy series. Well, it seems that the modern way to mourn for a fallen son is to have sex just right beside his corpse. And that's what we had seen from this week's Game of Thrones 'Breaker of Chains' where Jaime raped Cersei right in front Joffrey's dead body and we all know it is another incestuous action from the twins who are also parents of the deceased young king. After all, they are Lannisters, the villainous blood simply runs on their veins and such actions from them is not a surprise anymore.
However, the sex scene in the series actually made some difference from what actually happened in the novel. In George R.R. Martin version, Cersei and Jaime have a consensual sex which is different from the raped scenario that happened in the show.
Meanwhile, Joffrey's younger brother Tommen will be next king and eventually, Margaery will get married again for the third time. After her wed with King Renly and King Joffrey who are now both deceased, she'll get married to the newly crowned King Tommen and I already have this feeling that Margaery have some bad luck to her husbands. I'm afraid that even King Tommen will end up dead too as the story continues.
