Game of Thrones recapped with emoji


Season three of Game of Thrones was, like, totally sad face, sadder face, crying face, shocked monkey. Are we doing this right? We're sorry, we're not fluent in emoji.

While we used to scoff at the tiny-faced language, Cara Rose DeFabio has caused us to reconsider the communicative limitations of this twee icon talk. She's managed to recap - with impressive clarity - the major narrative arch of Game of Thrones.

From the Red Wedding to the threat beyond the wall, you can save yourself several hours of catchup with this neat short. And no, we've no idea why there's a dragon emoji and no lion emoji. We can only assume the youth of today have an abundance of feelings that can be succinctly expressed with a mythological reptile. Kids, eh?
