Game of Thrones, Jon Snow, Kit Harington

HBO

It's the battle you've been waiting for: Game of Thrones' "Battle of the Bastards." In the new trailer below, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Ramsaey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) and their respective forces square off in one heck of a deadly conflict.

"Battles have been won against greater odds," Jon Snow says. "I've fought beyond the Wall against worse than Ramsay Bolton."

"You don't know him," Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) knowingly replies. Remember: She knows all too well what an awful human this guy is.

And a note to other TV shows: This is how you tease what's sure to be an epic episode with a legendary battle.

"If I fall," Jon Snow says. "Don't bring me back." They didn't kill him only to bring him back and kill him again…right?!

Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed past episodes of Game of Thrones including "Hardhome" and "The Gift," serves as director on "Battle of the Bastards."

Will Jon Snow and his man bun prevail? You'll have to tune in on Sunday, June 19 to find out. And don't forget: the penultimate episodes of Game of Thrones are always pretty, pretty, pretty major. All things lead to the super-sized season finale. The 69-minute episode, airing June 26, is titled "The Winds of Winter." Yes, it shares the same title as George R.R. Martin's unreleased sixth book in the saga.

PS: Don't fret. Game of Thrones has already been renewed for a seventh season on HBO. Are you surprised?

Game of Thrones airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on HBO.
