Samuel L. Jackson Recaps Game of Thrones: F--k Those Dragons!

by at .

It might be a full ten months before the seven bless us with new episodes of Game of Thrones.

Jon Snow: Ready For Battle

There was a time when we thought we'd have to rely on our memories of the epic season 6 finale to keep us cool until winter comes again.

Fortunately, now we have a surprisingly-thorough recap of the entire series courtesy of the baddest motherf--ker on the planet, Samuel L. Jackson:

"The seasons in this place last a ridiculously long time," Jackson notes early on. 

"So let's just say [the characters] ain't too happy about winter coming."

It's a simple observation, but an important one.

In fact, it's one of the most important facts about the show, but it receives surprisingly little serious attention.

We all know the Stark family's icy reminder of the importance of constant preparedness, but we bet you'd be surprised by how many of your non-book-reading, casual GoT-watching friends are unaware (or have simply never thought about) the likelihood that winter will last for the remainder of these characters' lives.

Obviously, the the entire 7-minute clip is hilarious, but it's also a potent reminder of everythihg that brought us to this point and just how much has happened since viewers were first introduced to the lands of Westeros and Essos back in 2011.

Robert Baratheon, Viserys Targaryen, Ned Stark ... These days, sky-high body counts are par for the course on GoT, but back in Season 1, fans were shocked by the show's willingness to off characters who seemed to be established as series regulars.

"Nice family, right?" Jackson says of the Starks. "Don't get attached."

In a way there could be no better recapper than Jackson, as he's one of the few actors who's responsible for almost as many onscreen deaths as David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

And if those reports of a production delays on Season 7 of Thrones are true, we may be turning to this video for comfort many times in the coming months.

Fortunately, you can always watch Game of Thrones online if you're fiending for some midsummer Snow.
