The Internet is currently teeming with recaps of the story so far in Game of Thrones, as preparation for the show's season four premiere. But none match the peerless artistry of this refresher, told entirely in emoji. Spoilers, obviously.

The video, via LaughingSquid, is the work of Cara Rose DeFabrio, who apparently speaks fluent emoji. (Her previous work includes "Melroji Place.") And while it's not great for nuance, the video does a pretty good job of reminding you who's related and, more importantly, who's still alive. Way easier than frantically scanning Wikipedia during the season premiere.
