The frenetically bloody and boob-flecked fantasy show has the good fortune of nearing its third season premiere just when South by Southwest is hitting its stride. What that means for Austin-bound tourists this that week the marketing team brought its A game, with a fleet of pedicabs decked out like the series’ famed iron throne.

Game of Thrones season three premieres on HBO March 31. Get ready for the new episodes with a recap of season two below.
