The second season of Game of Thrones is coming fast on April 1, but—are you completely ready for it? If not—or if you've been hit by a severe case of amnesia—then you can get all caught up with this truly awesome 22-minute video recap.

(Spoilers ahead!)

Titled "You Win or You Die," this brand new HBO featurette is narrated in grand fashion by show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as by actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister aka the ''Imp'') and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister).

If you simply missed out or were confused by all the politics and back-stabbing of season one; if you really miss seeing some of your dearly departed favorite characters—we're looking at you, Ned Stark! (the always amazing Sean Bean)—then this video featurette is perfect for you.

And if not ... then it's still perfect for you!

(Plus, we get a sneak peek at what's coming up for season 2, so WIN!)

Have a look:

The second season of Game of Thrones, adapted from George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings, the second book from his A Song of Ice and Fire saga, is coming to HBO on April 1st.

War is coming. Are you ready?
