Confession time: I’ve never seen an episode of Game of Thrones. I feel horribly behind when everyone’s talking about it at work or posting memes on Facebook. “If you like Lord of the Rings, then you’ll love Game of Thrones,” my coworker told me. So I’m taking her word for it and watching tonight’s season four premiere. But before I commit to another series, I have to brush up on everything first. It’s like going on a date without the required preliminary Facebook stalking sesh – why would you not want to know what you’re getting into? Luckily, Buzzfeed has my back once again as well as the wonderful world wide web. Let us begin.
The Game of Thrones Wiki has handy-dandy recaps for the first three seasons, starting in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
