In an attempt to either amuse the very large and dedicated fan base of HBO’s Game of Thrones, College Humor has released recap video of all of the events from the show’s first three seasons, in anticipation of the Season 4 premiere this Sunday.
And the recap gets basically everything wrong, of course. It is College Humor, and this is a comedy video. From the names of the continents (West Eros and East Eros), to the names of the characters (Dannytanner the Dragonborn), to their relationships, ages, and reputations (Robert Baratheon as the Mad King, replaced by the Good King Joffrey). They even get the Red Wedding wrong.
It’s a good laugh, which is a nice thing to have right before everybody starts dying again.
In Game of Thrones Season 4, encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact… but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones, Season 4 premieres Sunday, April 6 on HBO.
