Everything You Need To Know About ‘Game Of Thrones’ In 9 Minutes (And The Morning Links)

Game of Thrones kicks off on Sunday, and whether you think you need a refresher or not, you do, especially if you haven’t watched since last season. There’s a lot of characters, and several new characters are introduced early on in season three. It’s a lot to keep up with, there are a lot of houses, and many of the characters look similar. Vague confusion is nothing to be ashamed of. This nine minute video, however, is an incredibly useful refresher ahead of the season finale. Watch it sometime between now and Sunday, and you’ll appreciate the premiere all that much more. Thanks, Slate!
