Generally speaking, Game of Thrones is not a satisfying show (although it is immensely entertaining). Quite the opposite actually, as it is packed with all kinds of death, tragedy, deceit and misfortune for the good guys, which can make it utterly heartbreaking at times. Sometimes, however, good prevails. Due to frequent misfortune, it can make these moments hugely gratifying and will leave many viewers overflowing with joy. It appears the tables have begun to turn as there were a number of satisfying moments in Season 6, but we all know that getting your hopes up is a dangerous game in the Westeros universe.
10. Tyrion Slaps Joffrey
Before Ramsey Bolton came along, Joffrey held the crown for the most despicable character on television. Petulant, whiny, mean and ever so sadistic, the only person who liked Joffrey was his own mother (and even she struggled with him at times). Tyrion particularly despised his nephew and delivered a few excellent barbs and insults his way, but he really satisfied those at home when he delivered a brilliant slap to the horrible King. Unrest in Kings Landing reaches breaking point, seeing the crowd hurl manure at the King. In typical Joffrey fashion, he orders his guards to slaughter everyone in the crowd which sparks a riot. Tyrion calls him a “vicious idiot boy-king” followed by a stinging slap to the face. It was not the first time that Tyrion lashed out, as he also delivered a wicked double slap to Joffrey in Season 1, Episode 2.
