Sunday is coming.
That’s the night HBO’s Game of Thrones returns — at 9/8c — after a nine-month break. Can’t quite remember what the lords and ladies of Westeros were up to the last time we saw them? Have no fear — just in time for the Season 4 premiere, TVLine’s got a quick catch-up guide that will refresh your memory in two shakes of a dragon’s spiny tail.
Click through the gallery below to recall what happened to the fantasy series’ key players last year, then hit the comments with who you’re most excited to see come Sunday. (And for the love of the old gods and the new, please keep the Unsullied — aka those who haven’t read the books and might not want to be spoiled — in mind while doing so.)
