HBO has released a new clip from the final season of Game of Thrones. It’s only a few seconds long, but when have we fans needed more than that to hope on the hype train?

Daenerys Targaryen arrives at Witnerfell and exchanges pleasantries with Sansa Stark, all while Jorah Mormont, Brienne of Tarth and Jon Snow look on. The internet promptly exploded:

Even the competition was hyped:

But not many!

Of course, Sansa and Daenerys aren’t the only characters in this promo. Everyone notice Brienne hanging out in the back?

Naturally, different people interpreted Brienne’s look differently:

And we can’t forget about Ser Jorah Mormont, just happy to be here:

Finally there’s Jon Snow. As with Brienne, how fans interpret his look changes from person to person:

However you interpret this teaser, I can definitely get behind this next sentiment:
