A ‘Game of Thrones’ Recap To Prepare You For Season 7
Game of Thrones returns for its 7th season tonight, and that is a thing that should be celebrated. To be perfectly honest, I had to rewatch the series a few times because there are so many characters with weird names. Even when I read the books, I have to read it near a laptop so I can wiki the names of people.

It gets especially hard to remember names when the faces change because of recasting. 3 different actors have played The Mountain alone, so it gets tough. Don’t forget the various storylines that occur at different times over an entire fictional planet. It gets a little numbing at times, but totally worth it. It has an astoundingly well-written structure that makes me jealous of the world building.
With all that said, you may need a refresher course of the first 6 seasons of the show. I started prepping by watching the show over the past few months to prepare, but this recap does a good job.
Give this a watch, then prepare to be one of the millions sitting down to watch what promises to be an amazing premiere.
