摘要

recap/Repeat or summarize what has been already said.
When you recapitulate, you repeat or a give a summary of what has already been said or decided. When we narrate a story in parts, we recapitulate, before we begin every new part, the earlier part of the story, by giving a brief summary of those parts. In TV serials too, there is a brief repetition of the earlier episode before a new episode begins.
