HBO has released a new 22 minute video recapping season 1 of "Game of Thrones" and ushering in season two, which arrives April 1. Check it out below. Here's a series of clips we posted last week. THR has co-creators and exec producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss talking about how the series will depart from George R. R. Martin's enormous books. Weiss says;

"Fans of the books will obviously have more of a line into events, but we’re taking approaches that might surprise them as well,..A lot of the characters that George created are so rich and so wonderful that you often find yourself wondering what would happen if this one met that one: When Robb [Richard Madden] finds himself alone with Jaime [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau], for instance, what do they say? And we’ve been blessed with such fabulous, talented actors that you really find yourself just wanting to write more and more for them, to explore the characters that they’re making their own."
