The wait has been nearly as long as the winter that was coming for six years, but the official Season 8 trailer for “Game of Thrones” has arrived—and it was worth every minute of waiting fans did.

HBO finally released the nearly two-minute glimpse at the show’s final season on Twitter (you can watch above), and it did not disappoint. Not only did fans get a small glimpse at scenes featuring every major character still on the canvas, but they also got much more. Here are 5 major moments from the trailer that made the show’s return somehow even more exciting than it was before.

Jon Will Learn The Truth About His Identity

While we don’t see how Jon (Kit Harington) and Dany (Emilia Clarke) both react to learning that they are actually aunt and nephew, we may be getting our first look at Jon’s reaction when he learns that he was not, in fact, Ned Stark’s (Sean Bean) son, but the legitimate son of Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi) and Rhaegar Targaryen (Harry Lloyd). He is seen in the crypt, likely at either Lyanna or Ned’s statue, with a sad and forlorn look on his face as Daenerys approaches him and warmly puts a hand on his shoulder. Based on his expression, it is right after Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Sam (John Bradley) tell him what they’ve learned about him, and it’s definitely going to bring him a whole new level of anguish.

Arya Will Kill Someone-Or Be Killed

The trailer begins with Arya (Maisie Williams) seemingly running scared through the crypts of Winterfell as someone (or something) potentially chases her. However, while this could be a glimpse of what may kill the youngest Stark daughter (as fans have predicted could happen), she is overheard also discussing her training as a Faceless Man—before she’s seen preparing to potentially make a kill.

“I know death. He’s got many faces,” she says. I look forward to seeing this one.”

As for who she may be facing off with, there are loads of theories out there about her finally finishing her list of names by crossing off the biggest one of all—Cersei (Lena Headey). Still, since she may be in Winterfell at the time, it could mean that a specific theory about someone else she plans to kill in order to make killing Cersei easier could be true.

Tormund And Beric Are Alive

Their fates weren’t really known at the end of Season 7, but fans of Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) can breathe a sigh of relief because the two men definitely were able to flee Eastwatch-by-the-Sea before the Wall came crashing down thanks to a reanimated Viserion. They also seemed to somehow avoid the swarm of White Walkers and Wights headed right towards Winterfell as well, because they can be seen as they are led into the stronghold, presumably to share the news with Jon that the dead have officially breached the Wall and are coming for them.

Jamie Is Definitely Switching His Alliance

Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was certain he was finished with his sister in Season 7 when Cersei revealed she wasn’t going to send forces to help the fight against the Night King (Vladimir Furdik), but now, we have confirmation that he is officially no longer on her side—or at least won’t be when the season starts. He is seen not only upon his arrival in the North swearing he still intended to fight for the living, but he also appears to be involved in the heart of a battle as well.

The Biggest Battle In Show History

Fans have known for a while now that the series shot its most ambitious battle sequence yet for the final season as the remaining characters all face off against the Night King. While we obviously didn’t get to see the entire thing in the trailer, the chilling reality of what it means was present.

Not only do we see what looks like Arya and even Jaime fighting through flames that are likely from the battle, we also get a creepy look at the beginning, as the Unsullied Forces, Gendry (Joe Dempsie), Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Jorah (Iain Glen) all stand in wait—as the hooves from the Night King’s horse menacingly approach.

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.
