Earlier this week, we promised you a ton of Game of Thrones coverage in lead up to this week's premiere. Lucky for you, we keep our word around here. The Internet has done its part, by dreaming up every kind of recap, roundup, and rundown to prep you for the big night.
Every kind but one.
For weeks we waited patiently — gritting our teeth, palms sweating — for the inevitable GoT emoji recap to emerge online, and true to form, the Internet delivered. Set to the show's earworm theme song, the three-minute recap covers as many plot points as an emoji recap can. The ambitious undertaking hits The Red Wedding, Jon Snow's tryst with Ygritte, and Khaleesi and her band of warriors. There's also a whole lot of skulls, because in the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die. And, if the rumors are true, this season people will die. Sorry for getting dark there. Let's lighten the mood with some emoji, shall we?
