The Roots' "Game of Thrones" Rap

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven't watch Sunday's premiere of "Game of Thrones")

Even Jimmy Fallon is firmly on the "Game of Thrones" bandwagon — or is that a horse-drawn cart?

The late-night host read out a (faux) letter from a viewer from his suggestion box on Wednesday, who said they had missed Sunday's Season 6 premiere and asked for him to catch them up.

"I saw it and it was great. But I don't think I could break it down in under a minute," Fallon responded.

"Fortunately, I think I know someone who can," he added, handing the reins over to The Roots bandleader, Tariq, who the delivered the best (or only) rap you have ever heard about the HBO fantasy hit.

From Jon Snow's frozen body and the magical Red Priestess Melisandre, to Theon Greyjoy and Sansa Stark's daring escape from Ramsey Bolton, he rapped an impressive recap without pausing for breath or butchering a character name.

But the drop the mic moment came while describing the final shocking scene, as Tariq sang: "Hickey, hickey, hickey, she's old as a mother ..."

"The Tonight Show" airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
