'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Trailer: Daenerys' Dragons Finally Fly Over Westeros

Game of Thrones Season 7 is, blessedly and finally, less than a month away. Today's second trailer won't make it an easy wait.

"Don't fight in the North, or the South," Littlefinger says in his big lucky moment of voicing the trailer's first words. Fight every battle everywhere, always, in your mind." 

The trailer's got a lot of Jon, Daenerys and Sansa, although it seriously manages to touch every corner of Westeros and then flash images of some very new spots and situations. Blink and you'll miss the eyes of a flock of ravens turning White Walker–blue.

Also: Beric Dondarrion and his flaming sword! Dragons and Westeros castles IN THE SAME SHOT! We can really see how, as Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister) said, "a lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.”

May the new gods and the old watch over you in these final weeks of Thrones-lessness.
