A record number of viewers now know who killed King Joffrey.

HBO reports that 6.9 million total viewers tuned in for the original airing of Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 4, an outing that revealed who was behind Joffrey's poisoning, as well as what the Walkers do with male babies.

Counting a pair of replays, the epic drama amassed 8.4 million viewers for the evening. 

That means A LOT of people saw Margaery begin to seduce a 12-year old.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tyrion: Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion: All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.

Nothing isn't better or worse than anything. Nothing is just nothing.
