Sansa in the snow

Warning: Possible "Game of Thrones" spoilers from the new trailer ahead.

Summer's just begun, yet winter is coming. On Wednesday, HBO released a new trailer for "Game of Thrones," and the preview revealed plenty of new goodies from the upcoming season. Near the end of the sneak peek, Sansa Stark quotes her late father Ned, with actress Sophie Turner's voice heard saying, "When the snows fall, when the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives." Chew on the meaning of that, "Thrones" fans.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown

Cersei is still queen, but her seat on the Iron Throne looks unstable at best. By the way, the trailer is set to "Light of the Seven," the haunting song that played during her destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor.

Hand of the queen

This appears to be Daenerys, trailing her hand along the "Painted Table" from book two of the series, "A Clash of Kings." If so, this would put her at Dragonstone.

Hide and peek

If anyone's creepily hiding up against a wall in "Game of Thrones," 10 to 1 it's Littlefinger.

On the beach

How Dany can stride the beach at Dragonstone in those high-heeled boots is anyone's guess, but she manages.

In one part of the trailer, Dany yanks down a banner that looks to carry the fiery heart sigil of House Baratheon.

Dragons in flight

Not sure what kind of Dragon Chow Dany is feeding Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion, but they suddenly seem huge. Naturally, they're flying toward Dragonstone.

Night King

The Night King of the White Walkers is chilling. Some fans were disappointed that he appears to still be played by stunt performer Vladimir Furdik rather than actor Richard Brake, who portrayed him in two episodes.

Wheels up

Bran's wheelchair has to be one of the biggest reveals of the trailer. Could he be in the Godswood of Winterfell, at the Weirwood Heart Tree? And is that Maester Wolkan with him?

Tender moment

Grey Worm and Missandei share a tender moment. He may be a eunuch, but that doesn't mean he doesn't long for romance. Also, could this be a farewell kiss?

Fight with the wights

Looks like Jon Snow is taking on another White Walker one-on-one. Hope that sword is Longclaw, which is made of Valyrian steel, one of the few known substances that can kill White Walkers.
