Well, thank you HBO for breaking every single Game of Thrones fan with a single line!

The American broadcasting network released a second trailer to the highly-anticipated sixth season, which airs on April 24.

The Iron Throne is still very much up for grabs and if the preview is anything go by… there will be a lot of blood and more of our favourites may die.

[L-R]: The trailer packs a punch! From Sansa fighting back, Arya trying to get her revenge, Cersei and Jamie doing something they shouldn’t, Jon Snow remaining dead and our beloved mother of dragons, Daenerys reuniting with her scaled child.

The two-minute clip shows that Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is learning to fight in the House of Black and White, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is returning to the fold after a lengthy absence and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is plotting against the Freys and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).

Our favourite moments are delivered by the Lannisters.

Cersei (Lena Heady) is still angry, yelling, “Stand at the head of our army where you belong. Show them what Lannisters are, what we do to our enemies.”

But it is how the producers ended the sneak peek that has us all reeling!

Footage emerges of the beloved Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) coming face to face with a captive dragon.

GOT fans everywhere rejoice! On Sunday March 3, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie made their first official red carpet debut as a couple at the Olivier Awards in London.

“That’s what I do,” he quips, after offering a bit of advice about dragons. “I drink and I know things.”

The only thing more pressing than every other character in Westros is the status of Jon Snow…

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, shared his rather blunt view, “He’s stabbed 40 times in the heart. He’s dead.”

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage walked the red carpet at the HBO VIP screening of season six in LA on Sunday.
