Hold onto your hats all you GOT fans, the new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones season 7 is in.

So what do we learn?

After a characteristic end-of-season blood bath, the key contenders for the Iron Throne have been crystallised in time for season 7. This latest trailer, starring Lena Headey (Cersei), Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), shows these three power players doing a slow-walk to their respective ‘thrones.’

Though Cersei currently has control of the Iron Throne – the official seat for the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms – it’s unlikely she’ll be able to keep it without a serious battle on her hands. Because, you know, Daenerys has those massive dragons now.

As ever with a GOT trailer, very little is being given away and it raises more questions than answers. One of the big ones is whether Jon Snow and Daenerys, who after years of GOT fan theories have finally been confirmed as relations (she’s his aunt), will team up to fight Cersei together.

They’ve certainly hinted at a potential Daenerys-Snow alliance off-screen in this Dolce and Gabbana advert. And given the two are both currently single, and those Targaryens are pretty relaxed about incest, a power romance could even even be on the cards. Brrrr.

We also want to show our appreciation for the trailer’s slowed-down version of 80s/90s band James’ hit song – aptly titled ‘Sit Down.’

Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres exclusively on 17th July on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 2am, repeated at 9pm on the same day.
