Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, titled “The Lion and The Rose,” featured the long-awaited union between Joffrey Baratheon and the redhead with the good boobs known to fans of the series as the “purple wedding,” and holy crap, I haven’t been this happy since my mom got me a golden retriever puppy in third grade.
For weeks I’d been trying to figure out what the hell a purple wedding even was, and I’m not going to say anything spoiler-y, I’m just going to tell you to watch it. Be one of the million oomanz to illegally download it. Get HBO. Read the book. I don’t care…

The Red Wedding and this — fans call this the Purple Wedding — occur in the same book. In the TV show, it’s separate seasons.”
