Everything We Remember From “Game Of Thrones” Season 5, Illustrated

Zombies and dragons and shame and death. But mostly death.

1. HBO’s Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 24! To prepare for the new season, we asked several BuzzFeed staffers to draw what they remember from last season.

We quickly learned that…a lot happened. It’s hard to get it all straight.

2. First off, the Night’s Watch burned Mance Rayder alive! But Jon Snow mercy-killed him halfway through. ’Cause Jon’s a NICE GUY.

3. Then, in Braavos, Arya transformed into Cat.

4. She spent a lot of time sweeping and getting frustrated.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

“I have people to murder, dammit!”

5. Jaime and Bronn went on a buddy-comedy-style road trip to Dorne.

6. Littlefinger told Sansa he was going to take care of her and then he JUST LEFT HER. So she could get married?? Again??

7. The house of Black and White told Arya — sorry, Cat — that she had to throw all her stuff away. But she sneakily hid her sword under the stairs.

8. Then a satanist cult came to power in King’s Landing?

9. They made people carve stars into their foreheads. Rude.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

10. Then Melisandre gave Jon Snow a lap dance and he was all like, “nah.”

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

11. He was kinda tempted though.

Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

12. Meanwhile, in Dorne, Jaime wasn’t taking to being one-handed very well.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

13. The sand snakes showed up looking badass.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

14. But not badass enough I guess, because they all got captured!

Mike Hinson / BuzzFeed

15. Over in King’s Landing, Queen Margaery also got locked up.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

16. Thanks a lot, High Sparrow and Olenna.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

17. Ser Barristan got jumped by the Sons of the Harpy!

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

18. Then Ser Jorah Mormont weaseled his way back to Daenerys Targaryen.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

She was less than pleased.

19. Ramsay Bolton continued to be a bastard. Not literally. Figuratively.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

20. One thing’s for sure, we definitely remembered Cat selling cockles. (Although we could not agree on what those are or how to spell it.)

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

21. Maybe it’s “cuckold”? Wait, no, that’s not right.

Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

22. For the record, Wikipedia defines a cockle as “a small, edible, saltwater clam, a marine bivalve mollusc.”

Alexis Nedd / BuzzFeed

The more you know.

23. Also, Tyrion and Dany finally met!

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

24. And up in the North, the The Massacre at Helm’s Deep — er, I mean, Hardhome — began!

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

25. The Night’s King came out looking all blue and menacing.

Mike Hinson / BuzzFeed

26. Karsi (aka the girl from Pitch Perfect 2) was killed by a horde of White Walker children.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

27. And our heroes made their escape thanks to Wun Wun the giant.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

28. And let’s just get this part over with: Stannis burned his daughter alive. It was awful.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

When are you people going to learn that Blood Magic is never worth it??

29. Then when Cersei got locked up, she may have gotten so thirsty she drank from a gross puddle.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

30. Drogon finally reappeared! Just in the nick of time! He grabbed Dany and immediately peaced out.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

31. Some fans of the book were not particularly impressed with this part.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

32. Sansa and Theon met in the middle of a battle and decided to jump off a castle wall!

Zoë Burnett / BuzzFeed

33. And I mean, it’s about time you grew a backbone, Theon, seriously.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

34. Did they die? It’s kinda unclear, but honestly anything is better than being imprisoned by Ramsay.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

35. Brienne may have killed Stannis? YES. YOU GO, GIRL.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

36. Cersei had an extremely bad day.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

37. Really, just not good.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

38. She was led around the city by a lady with a bell.

Mike Hinson / BuzzFeed

39. People threw fruit at her.

Zoë Burnett / BuzzFeed

40. Some people flashed her?

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

41. It was mostly just a lot of shame.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

42. Some of us missed that episode and were really confused.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

43. Really the only part you need to remember is “shame.”

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

44. But then Ser Robert Strong showed up and saved Cersei’s ass!

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

45. Then he died? Maybe?

Alexis Nedd / BuzzFeed

46. Then, Jaime left Dorne with Myrcella and he told her that he’s her real dad! But then she died. Oops.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

47. Arya stole a face and there were some serious consequences.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

48. She insisted it was for a good cause, but they didn’t care!

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

49. Bottom line, she’s blind now.

Zoë Burnett / BuzzFeed

50. Like super blind.

Mike Hinson / BuzzFeed

51. Like really, really blind.

Alexis Nedd / BuzzFeed

52. And last but not least, Jon got stabbed by his fellow watchmen.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

53. It was all Olly’s idea. Thanks a lot, Olly. You’re the worst.

Alexis Nedd / BuzzFeed

54. RIP Jon, you were a shining beacon of light in the cold, cold dark.

Zoë Burnett / BuzzFeed

55. Goodnight, sweet prince.

Mike Hinson/ BuzzFeed

56. You will live on in our hearts.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

57. And maybe in the show too? Some of us are theorists who still want to believe.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

58. Also: Bran and Hodor were sadly absent this whole season.

Mike Hinson / BuzzFeed

59. We like to think he was having a nice time hanging out in that tree from Season 4.

Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

60. Also missing: Ser Pounce! Where’d you go?

Zoë Burnett / Buzzfeed

61. You were sorely missed. This season was a lot more depressing without you.
