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.

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?
