Missed this week’s Game of Thrones premiere? The Roots have you covered.

During The Tonight Show’s Suggestion Box, someone asked if Jimmy Fallon could recap “The Red Woman” since the audience member wouldn’t be able to catch up before Sunday night. And while Fallon had seen the episode, he left the task to Black Thought, who could do it a lot better than Fallon could.

We hope this turns into a recurring segment.

(Note: This is an actual spoiler recap, so if you still plan to watch the episode on your own, look away.)

With the cast already great at singing and beatboxing to the Game of Thrones theme song, the Roots would fit right into Westeros.
