HBO Releases 'Game of Thrones' Recap Special Online (Video)


The mother of Stannis Baratheon's assassin smoke baby, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) will reappear after her king’s devastating loss at Battle of the Blackwater.

For fans that didn't sit home on Friday night to watch the Game of Thrones recap special, HBO has put the primer online ahead of the third season premiere.

The 14-minute video includes co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and much of the cast walking their way through the events of the second season. There aren't any revelations of teases of the new season, but it doesn't hurt to retrace your steps through the series' labyrinthine plot.

And, as always, it's refreshing to see Jack Gleeson, the actor behind the much-loathed King Joffrey, get the chance to speak out of character.
