Game of Thrones, Lena Headey

A new season of Game of Thrones is coming...and we've finally gotten our first taste of what's ahead!

HBO's mega-hit show won't return for season five until April, but after the IMAX screening event last night (and thanks to some sneaky fans), the first full trailer for the new season has hit the web.

The leaked two-minute video is not the greatest quality (it was recorded by said sneaky fans and uploaded to YouTube), but thanks to HBO releasing the official version, we have watched it over and over again, our mouse hovering over the pause button, as we try to pick out any and every detail of the new footage as possible. You're welcome, fellow Game of Thrones obsessives! 

Can't wait until April? Same! Here's everything we picked out from the Games of Thrones season five trailer, which you can watch in full below now:

- Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) might be in for a rough time ahead, as the trailer starts with the incestual twins with grim looks on their faces as a voiceover says, "Nothing is more hateful than failing to protect the ones you love."

Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) are still together (and maybe closer than ever?), as it looks like they might be scheming to get revenge for her slaughtered family. Littlefinger tells her while holding her face in his hands, "There's no justice in this world. Not unless we make it. Avenge them."

- Another wedding for Margaery (Natalie Dormer), as she weds Joffrey's (Jack Gleeson) younger brother Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman)...this time hopefully with less murder at the reception?

Game Of Thrones Finale, Maisie Williams


- Cersei raging about how "that little monster" aka Tyrion (Peter Dinklage and his awesome new beard!) is "somewhere out there drawing breath." Let's hope she never finds him.

- Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is still in the north leading an army.

- Arya (Maisie Williams) made it to Braavos with her trusty Needle, ready to make some serious moves in the war.

- When an on-the-run-and-in-hiding Tyrion says he'll never sit on the Iron Throne, Varys (Conleth Hill) tells him, "You could help another climb those steps and take that seat...The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name." And when Tyrion shoots back with a sarcastic, "Good luck finding him," Varys becomes all of us who have been oh-so-impatiently waiting for Dany (Emilia Clarke) to claim her rightful place by saying, "Who said anything about him?" Smash cut to Dany looking fierce and her full-grown dragons, and it becomes clear that season five is going to be the season of Dany! We are here. For. This!
