"Game of Thrones" dropped an ominous trailer for the upcoming season Sunday, although it doesn't show much footage or plot details about the new season.
Not only do they have to deal with the White Walkers, but also their budding relationship - as well as the machinations of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), who isn't ready to give up the Iron Throne to a Targaryen just yet.
HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business. The two haven't seen each other since the second episode of season one, when Jon gifted Arya her precious sword, Needle.
This final season of the long-running series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10 episode seasons.
In the previously released look of the show, we had seen Sansa Stark interact with Daenerys Targaryen as a befuddled Jon Snow looked on. Hoping this third installment is more like the fantastic first season.
