Trying To Remember What Happened On Season 4 Of "Game Of Thrones," Illustrated

Never go to a wedding, everybody dies, and also there are boobs.

Posted on

HBO's Game of Thrones returns this Sunday! To prepare for a new season of adventure and subterfuge, we asked several BuzzFeed staffers to draw what they remember from last season.

Because there's no better way to refresh your memory than to barely — barely — recall something you watched over a year ago.

Because there's no better way to refresh your memory than to barely — barely — recall something you watched over a year ago.

Some staffers were more helpful than others.

We saw the Purple Wedding, which is called that because...everything is purple?

Why DO we call it that?
Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

Why DO we call it that?

Dwarf fight! Very memorable, vaguely homoerotic, and offensive dwarf fight.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

AND THEN JOFFREY GOT POISONED!

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

RIP Joffrey.

Queen Cersei was not happy.

Her sadness quickly turns to anger because this is Cersei we're talking about.
Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

Her sadness quickly turns to anger because this is Cersei we're talking about.

Then the fucking-on-Joffrey's-corpse scene

Because royal twincest wasn't gross enough to begin with.
Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Because royal twincest wasn't gross enough to begin with.

(The showrunners say that wasn't a rape scene but we know better.)

Question 1: Did Sam and Gilly do it this season? Some of us say yes, some of us say no.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

We distinctly recall a bear fight. Brienne DEFINITELY fought a bear.

Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

Wait, no, that was the season before. Was it? Who cares: BEAR FIGHT!

HOTTIE SWITCH: Which Daario do YOU think is more bangable?

~Daario the Lothario~
Chip Gilbert / BuzzFeed

~Daario the Lothario~

Stannis' scaly-faced daughter Shireen teaches Davos how to read for eight episodes straight and it's very cute.

Shireen's face is all kinds of fucked up in this picture.
Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

Shireen's face is all kinds of fucked up in this picture.

This is all you need to know about what Bran was up to tbh.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Still-breastfeeding-mom Lysa Arryn gets pushed through the Moon Door. LOL.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

Petyr was all like "THIS IS SPARTA" but really it was like "YOU'RE NOT AS HOT AS YOUR SISTER!"

Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

Why is there a bird here? Was there a talking bird scene we missed?

Loryn Brantz / BuzzFeed

Sansa was relieved. Talking bird or no talking bird.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

Grey Worm saw Missandei's boobies – but their love is forbidden because he doesn't have a penis. Also society. IDK. It's fanfiction, leave them alone.

Consummation is NOT the end game here, we guess.
Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

Consummation is NOT the end game here, we guess.

(He was very apologetic about seeing her boobs, which was super sweet of him.)

Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

Question 2: Did Jon Snow and Sex Ghost Khal Drogo have a steamy makeout session apropos of nothing or did that not happen?

That might have been fanfiction too.
Will Varner / BuzzFeed

That might have been fanfiction too.

Tyrion went on trial for killing Joffrey and his ex-bae Shae shows up to testify against him because he called her a whore to SAVE HER LIFE.

Natasha Umer / BuzzFeed

THE MOUNTAIN FIGHTS THE VIPER

GET HYPE.
Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

GET HYPE.

It. does. not. end. well.

Loryn Brantz / Will Varner / Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

Oh GOD.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

*sobs into duvet endlessly, my tears flowing into a river that drowns everything it meets*

RIP Oberyn. You were hot and openly bisexual and you mattered.
Monique Steele / BuzzFeed

RIP Oberyn. You were hot and openly bisexual and you mattered.

Danerys banishes Jorah for some shit he did back in Season 2.

Monique Steele / BuzzFeed

And then locks up her dragons because she figured out that leaving a troupe of murder lizards free to roam the countryside is a bad idea.

GO FIGURE.
Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

GO FIGURE.

There's still one dragon out there though. Might want to, uh, remember that.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Arya Stark refuses to mercy-kill the Hound after Brienne beats him up and drops him off a cliff.

Everyone is bummed out that Arya and the Hound won't be hanging out next season because they're the BEST.
Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

Everyone is bummed out that Arya and the Hound won't be hanging out next season because they're the BEST.

Then Arya trades in her magical Season 2 Plot Coin for boat passage to Venice... I MEAN Braavos.

Jojen Reed gets killed in the Skeleton War.

Bet you didn't "green-see" THAT one coming, did ya?
Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

Bet you didn't "green-see" THAT one coming, did ya?

His sacrifice allows Bran to finally meet the Three-Eyed Raven...

Andrew Peña / BuzzFeed

Who is actually a...ghost? In a tree? A man stuck in a tree who is very old and maybe is a tree ghost.

Get out of that tree.
Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Get out of that tree.

ANNOUNCEMENT: There was some confusion in the office about Tyrion Lannister's name, and from this point forward we will refer to him exclusively as Tyrone.

Alexis Nedd / BuzzFeed

EX: Tyrone killed his father on the shitter.

Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed

Tyrone had no mercy and for good reason because his dad is a jackhole.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Tyrone put several crossbow bolts in his daddy's body. Just like that. Boom boom boom.

Andrea Hickey / BuzzFeed

Tyrone also strangled his ex-girlfriend with a necklace.

Will Varner / BuzzFeed

Because fuck her that's why.

RIP Shae
Loryn Brantz / BuzzFeed

RIP Shae

Our predictions for next season: Anything can happen! The only thing we know for sure is that George R.R. Martin is getting rich AF!
