Joffrey Baratheon/Lannister's Most Evil Moments

With four seasons of HBO's "Game of Thrones" in the can, Joffrey Baratheon still sits as King on the Iron Throne and continues to threaten to impart his wrath on, well, anyone who makes widdle Joffrey angry. The paternity of King "Baratheon", of course, continues to fall under scrutiny as the notion that "Joffrey Lannister" is the correct name for the mean little bastard who would appear to be the unfortunate, weasely product of incest between Queen Cersei Lannister and her brother, Jaime.

It isn't easy to rise to the position of "Most Detestable Character on Game of Thrones"; we're talking about a show where the pilot episode featured the heroic protagonist executing an innocent man. (Plus, he insisted his wife raise his bastard son conceived by another woman, and kept the only son of his vanquished foe working around the house as a slave. But hey, he loves wolves, so it's all good!)

Still, Joffrey manages it with a mix of pluck, looking astonishingly like the guy who plays Draco Malfoy, and of course, petulance. He approaches ruling Westeros the way any angry, twisted, in-bred, evil blonde pre-teen who's been trained to be insufferable since the womb would: blind malice and hateful rage. Go through the list and vote for what YOU think are Joffrey's most deliriously villainous moments from "Game of Thrones" and keep in mind that there are myriad more despicable Joffrey moments to come.

    Everything He's Ever Done With a Prostitute

    As a present for his nameday, good (libidinous) Uncle Tyrion orders up a pair of hookers for the (seemingly) sexually repressed King, probably thinking it would be good for him to have a release of some kind to distract him from killing peasants and culling disdain around the Kingdom. Joffrey responds by having one of the girls mercilessly beat the other, a message that he'll not tolerate any interference, sexy or otherwise.

    Thing is, Joffrey's not done just yet with the doomed ladies, Ros and Daisy, just yet. As Joffrey ditches his courtship with Sansa in favor of the benefits of Margaery and the House Tyrell, he also does Littlefinger a solid by inviting Ros (whom Littlefinger caught spying on him) back into his bedchamber so he could finally stick a little something in her (translation: he shot and killed her with a crossbow).

    Fleeing During the Battle of the Blackwater

    With wildfire mastermind Tyrion already leading the charge in defense of Kings Landing, protective mommy Cersei comes out and pulls Joffrey from the wall (not even the front lines) and back into the safety of the castle during the Battle of the Blackwater, an act which demoralized the men and left his Uncle- then the Hand of the King- to take care of business. 

    P*ssy.

    Joffrey Has It Out With Cersei

    Joffrey, newly coronated, has heard the gossip about the... rather murky circumstances of his birth. So naturally, he goes to his mother, Cersei, with his concerns, and to find out the truth. Because when you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you end up in a slapfight with your adolescent son in a still-under-construction throne room.

    Joffrey and Cersei have a tense back-and-forth, in which he taunts his mother with the (perfectly true) rumors about King Robert fathering bastards throughout the kingdom. (When you consider his age, size and the fact that most of his meals were basically hog fat in a goblet, it's pretty amazing King Robert had the endurance to father this many children. No wonder they made him king.) Then she hits him, which may be the first thing she's done in the series to date that wins her points with the viewers at home.

    Joffrey notes that his mother's actions are "punishable by death," but actually DOESN'T have her arrested and beheaded. This time. But he hasn't ruled out the whole "fill her full of wine on my next Name Day" plan. Let's play it as it comes.
