Vanity Fair is back for its 8th and final episode in Game of Thrones: Quick Draw. This particular video is a complete Season 4 recap. With Sunday’s Season 5 premiere right around the corner, I suppose it was time for VF to bring this experiment in hilarity to a close. We’ve seen The Life of Ned Stark, The Life of Khal Drogo, The Life of Joffrey Baratheon, The Lives of Ygritte and Robb Stark, and The Lives of Catelyn Stark and The Hound.
VF really brought their A-game with this video, and while I was hoping for Prince Oberyn to get his own “Life of” video, his short time on screen is hilariously spot-on. There’s also the nod to that infamous “Did he or did he not rape her?” scene with Jaime and Cersei. Sadly, even rendered in comically drawn stick figures, it still looks like rape.
Then we have Hodor saving Bran from Locke “HODOR!” and The Night’s King making a baby Other. There are so many delightful moments in this Season 4 recap that it’s hard to pin-down my favorite, but the appearance of Ser Pounce probably made my day. That, or Dany putting her dragons in the pit, although this particular dragon looked more like the Loch Ness Monster.
Vanity Fair has provided a lighthearted look back at some of the more notable deaths in Game of Thrones, and I sincerely hope they do this again once Season 5 has wrapped up.
