Who Killed Joffrey? An Update
5 of 7
Lady Olenna Tyrell
Why it could be her:
In what may have been foreshadowing, Lady Tyrell approaches Sansa during the reception to say how terrible it is that Robb and Lady Stark were killed at a
, commenting on how awful a person would have to be to murder someone during a special occasion.
Lady Tyrell expresses her concerns about Joffrey several times, asking Sansa for her opinion and worrying about her granddaughter marrying such a tyrant. Killing Joffrey would get Margaery out of harm's way.
Why it couldn't be her:
Evil or not, King Joffrey was her granddaughter's new husband, and she rushes to Margaery's side to comfort her after he dies.
Lady Tyrell's conversation with Margaery implies that she's too smart to have killed Joffrey — at that point anyway. She explains to Margaery that it would have been better had they consummated the marriage first, this guaranteeing her right to the title.
