Even some of the most ardent fans of HBO's Game of Thrones can find it difficult to keep track of the thoroughly dense plot brought over from George R. R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire. If you're looking for a bit of a refresher in preparation for this weekend's return to Westeros for season three, Slate's nine-minute recap of the series may serve you well. The plot is ungraciously stormed through in the breathlessly narrated play-by-play video, but you'll likely be glad you watched it when you sit down for the first episode of season three on Sunday night at 9PM ET. Needless to say, the video will make quick work of any surprises in the excellent series, and if you've yet to start watching Game of Thrones we wouldn't recommend using this catch-up to skip ahead.
