James Corden’s “Game of Thrones” Seasons 1-7 recap is different than everyone else’s — and dare this writer say, better?
On Wednesday, the “Late Late Show” host rapped his way through a helpful refresher for casual fans.
It starts out like this:
“King Robert died on the Iron Throne/but Cersei would not be alone/Jamie Lannister made his sister his bae/turns out, it’s not only kings that he slays.
There’s Rob, Arya, Sansa and Bran/Daenerys married Aquaman/All of these houses it’s hard to keep straight/Did that kid just breastfeed?/I swear, he’s like eight.”
Here are some other lyrical highlights:
“The bad guys marched south to make mankind fall/But unlike Trump/the North has a wall.”
“Daenerys freed slaves to join her bandwagon/She should have been watching ‘How to Train Your Dragon.'”
“The internet went ‘You know nothing, Jon Snow’/Boy, am I glad I stole HBO Go.”
Here’s how it concluded:
“For fans of the show/the haze is starting to clear/In just four more days/winter is here.”
Impressed? Give props to Lawrence Dai, who wrote the whole thing for Corden. Not quite impressed? Perhaps this will help: Lawrence had not seen a single minute of “Thrones” before his epic 67-hour binge ahead of Sunday’s Season 8 premiere.
Watch the recap video above, and see Dai’s torture unfold below.
