We’re just a few days away from the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. Even though there are only six episodes, there are still a lot of stories left to tell. Without a refresher course, it’s easy to get lost in all the loose ends that will hopefully get tied up by the finale. Luckily, we’ve got you covered.

io9 put together a video breaking down the biggest moments of all seven seasons of Game of Thrones—along with in-depth articles for those other details you may have forgotten. The video above is a 10-minute recap that breaks down the bigger moments from seasons one through seven of Game of Thrones. If one or more of those seasons is still a bit fuzzy, I’ve linked all of our season recap articles below. And, just because I love you all and I really love Game of Thrones, I’ve included a few of our neat explainers—some cool lore explorations, and fan theories that may make a difference as we finally approach winter.

I’ve only watched the pilot episode, but I think I can summarize it all so far based on the cultural zeitgeist. I’m sure someone will correct me if I get things wrong.

Sean Bean is a good, honorable person who dies because of politics.

Sean Bean’s kids suffer a lot. His bastard son escapes most of the politically motivated suffering by going to WALL! and fighting ice zombies and Honduran refugees. He dies, he gets better. He joins up with Dragon Queen lady.

A brother and sister were fucking. Her son (maybe their son) becomes king and a giant shit and then he dies. For some reason, they make the sister walk through the city naked. The actress says she’s done with nudity after that.

A noble girl is sold to a barbarian chief as a bride, he dies, she becomes leader of the tribe, becomes Dragon Queen lady and kicks ass.

Just about everyone else is a murderous or raping or torturing piece of shit who deserves to spend some time in the Bronze Bull.

Except Peter Dinklage. He deserves to always be working.

Ice zombies are coming.
