Game of Thrones is nearly back. Foregoing the April start of seasons past, the popular HBO series of fantasy, murder, sex and dragons finally returns on July 16, and it promises to be a major TV event.

With two shortened seasons left of the series before we bid farewell to Westeros -- and currently no books to read to find out what happens ahead of time -- we're ready and anxiously awaiting to see what happens to Jon, Daenerys, Sansa, Tyrion and oh so many others.

But it's been a while since Season 6 was on the air, and maybe you don't have time to binge six full seasons to remind yourself of all the politics, murder, alliances, betrayals, slavery, butchery and dragons. Luckily, we're here for you and have condensed all six seasons so far into one handy video.

We'll be up front: We didn't exactly hit that two-minute mark we were going for -- there's a lot to cover, after all. But with this recap you'll be ready to rock for Season 7 and all the warg, white walker, dragon, king in the north action it promises to bring.
