HBO's year-end video flashes new 'Game of Thrones' footage

It might be brief, but HBO's year-end celebratory video includes a few brief scenes from the highly anticipated sixth season of "Game of Thrones."

We still have about four months to go until the start of the new "Game of Thrones" season, but HBO has already begun teasing fans with glimpses of a return to Westeros and Essos by way of a new poster and teaser trailer.

HBO also released a year-end recap video to the company's social-media channels on Sunday, highlighting a solid year for the network that included 43 Emmy wins. Toward the end of the nearly three-minute video, three scenes from the upcoming sixth season of "Game of Thrones" show up.

In the first, we see a concerned Daenerys Targaryen on a riverbank looking at...something. Quickly, the clip cuts to Ramsay Bolton riding in front of the banners of House Bolton, presumably into battle, and then finally to a warm embrace between King Tommen Baratheon and his mother, Cersei.

You can fast-forward to the new "Game of Thrones" footage at around the 2:15 mark. The whole thing only lasts a total of three seconds, so don't blink or you might miss it.

Season 6 of HBO's "Game of Thrones" will premiere on HBO on a yet-to-be-announced date in April 2016.
