    All The Interesting Details You Might Have Missed In The New "Game Of Thrones" Trailer

    Let's break it down shot by shot.

    As you probably know by now, there's a new Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer, and it shows a lot of scenes we haven't seen before. To save you having to pause and rewatch it 207 times, read on for a breakdown of each shot...

    As the amazing "Light of the Seven" theme from the Season 6 finale plays, we see Sansa in the godswood of Winterfell, looking rather pensive.

    We then see the shot of the gate at the Wall rising, which was in the previous trailer – but the next shot makes it more interesting. Because look who it's rising for.

    HBO

    Yep, that's almost certainly Meera, pulling Bran on his sled.

    Next we have Jon, looking very cold north of the Wall, with an unknown man standing beside him. This is part of the same sequence we saw in the first trailer, which showed him, along with Tormund, running away from something.

    We head to King's Landing, with the Lannister banners proudly displayed, and the gold cloaks of the city watch walking through what looks like a pretty happy crowd.

    Speaking of Cersei, here she is in a dark place – likely the black cells, where she was last seen leaving the Shame Nun in the hands of the undead Mountain.

    Next, we get our first shot of Dany in this trailer, tracing her hand along the giant map table at Dragonstone.

    She's wearing the same outfit she has on when she arrives at Dragonstone, so this could be when she walks in and sees the table for the first time.

    There's a shot of some unidentified people arriving by boat on an unidentified shore.

    Then there's Arya, with Needle, on a horse – a shot we've seen before.

    Next we see a shot of Jaime walking along the ramparts of a castle – the dead body he casually walks past suggests this is NOT King's Landing.

    HBO

    The dead body appears to be wearing clothes like those worn by servants of House Tyrell – as seen in Season 3.

    HBO

    Could this be Highgarden? If so, it doesn't bode well for our fave Queen of Thorns.

    The next two shots we saw in the last trailer: Littlefinger being a creeper, and an unidentified hand sharpening a blade.

    HBO

    Then we have Dany walking along the beach at Dragonstone.

    Meanwhile, we see Dany walking into the Dragonstone, followed by Tyrion, and being confronted by Stannis's banner.

    HBO

    Remember, Dragonstone was his home under Robert's rule. That map table we saw Dany walk around is the same one Stannis used to plan his battles – and also bang Melisandre on.

    She rips down Stannis's banner – reclaiming Dragonstone as her own.

    We get this gorgeous shot of the dragons flying around Dragonstone.

    Then there's Tyrion watching them fly, looking very worried.

    Next there's a shot of Theon surrounded by flames – from the previous trailer we know this is connected to some kind of fiery sea battle.

    Then we have Grey Worm in full armour approaching some kind of cave by boat.

    We see Brienne and Pod looking glorious at Winterfell in Stark-esque furs.

    Then there's the Hound in a setting and wearing clothes – and an intense expression – that suggest he's part of the crew who are with Jon north of the Wall.

    Next there's Unsullied being hit by arrows...

    And some kind of cavalry (Dothraki?) attacking Lannister soldiers.

    There's another shot of that fiery sea battle, with what looks like Yara leaping down to attack someone who might be Euron.

    Then we have Jaime, with Bronn at his side, commanding archers.

    The next sequence is really interesting: We see a flock of ravens flying over the army of wights, and we focus on one whose eyes turn white.

    HBO

    You know, the way Bran's do when he wargs into things.

    The Night King appears to look up at the raven, and we cut to Bran with those white warg eyes.

    HBO

    Was the Night King sensing his presence?

    But LOOK WHERE BRAN IS!

    OK, next there is probaly the most epic shot of the trailer: Beric Dondarrion wielding a FLAMING SWORD LIKE A GODDAMN BOSS.

    The next shots show Euron's fleet heading into King's Landing.

    HBO

    Seeing as he is probably battling Yara and Theon, who are allied with Dany, in other scenes, there's a really good chance he's heading to King's Landing to ally with Cersei, and not fight her. The enemy of my enemy, and all that. Also there's a shot in the first trailer with someone standing in front of Cersei and Jaime in the throne room who is very possibly Euron.

    We get shots of the Unsullied in formation, then attacking what appear to be Lannisters, then a small group of Unsullied opening gates for a larger group.

    HBO

    This lines up with the earlier shot of Grey Worm, and also the scenes from the first trailer of the Unsullied storming a Lannister keep. This is almost certainly Casterly Rock.

    Then there's Dany at Dragonstone, looking over her shoulder at someone or something.

    We see Jaime charging through a burnt battlefield – probably the fallout of Dany's dragons.

    HBO

    Oh my gooooood.

    There's an explosion on a ship.

    Tormund fighting what is probably a wight north of the Wall.

    Dany riding Drogon into battle with the Dothraki.

    And we're back to the fiery sea battle.

    HBO

    Then back to the Lannister soldiers.

    HBO

    Before heading north of the Wall again, with Jon Snow, Beric Dondarrion, and others being surrounded by wights.

    For a change of pace, we see Missandei and Grey Worm getting intimate.

    There's Tyrion looking worried again.

    This next shot is interesting. We have someone who looks an awful lot like the Hound back in the South – most likely King's Landing, judging by the Lannister guard in the background – ready to fight.

    Then there's Jon and Davos in less clothes than they usually are – suggesting they're also in the South. That rocky background looks an AWFUL lot like the shots of Dragonstone we've seen.

    Next we see Jon in a lot more clothes fighting a freaking White Walker.

    There's Dothraki riding through flames.

    And what looks like Theon collapsing on a beach, seeming kinda defeated.

    HBO

    I am very concerned about this.

    It could have something to do with that fiery sea battle, which we see again in the next shot – featuring Euron attacking someone.

    We get a shot of Dany on top of Drogon at Dragonstone - and everybody's fave dragon showing off his sharp teeth.

    HBO

    Theory: He is being a protective son as Jon arrives at Dragonstone.

    There's this shot, which appeared in the first trailer, of what is almost certainly Jon and co. surrounded by wights/White Walkers.

    On the other hand, it's somewhat ominous to hear "the lone wolf dies" as we see an injured figure – probably Jon – riding away from something beyond the Wall.

    HBO

    Could this be the aftermath of that wight/White Walker battle? Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

    On a slightly more hopeful note, as we hear "but the pack survives", we get this shot of Jon, facing a horde of wights – somewhat reminiscent of that iconic Battle of the Bastards shot from Season 6.

    TL;DR: THIS SEASON IS FULL OF BATTLES AND IT'S GOING TO BE SO FREAKING EPIC OMG.
