I personally went on with reading all the recaps just because I don't really understand everything on the first read. Plus I avoided the fandom like the plague back then because I didn't want to be spoiled, haha. That meant I couldn't look anywhere to get answers if I had a question related to the plot. So in retaliation, I did read all of the recaps. Suffice to say I got a lot of info in reading them! Hussie worked hard for those anyway, so it's also out of respect for the guy.
Year 1 is just the beginning. Wait until you see more! It's gonna be even more awesome for sure. :D
