Hold the door—HBO just dropped the first teaser trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones and the fans are freaking.
Though the teaser doesn’t contain any new footage, followers of the series are scrutinizing and studying every minor detail. Publications have begun meticulously dissecting the 30-second trailer, scrounging for clues of any kind.
Winter has arrived—we all know that. But what else might this clip reveal?
Does the ominous white mist that fills the first few frames symbolize the white walkers’ victory? Is the ice that freezes the wolf and the dragon statues a sign of doom for the Starks and Targaryens? Will the Lannister’s time on throne end in flames because of the fire that engulfed the lion marker?
We know nothing, Jon Snow.
Guess fans will have to keep speculating—and they certainly have enough time to do so. The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones doesn’t debut until April. The struggle (#ForTheThrone) is real.
So read and ruminate to your heart’s desire. Just don’t lose sleep over it, for the night is dark and full of terrors.
