While nearly 30 million people were busy watching some sure-to-be-winners get bested during last night's 91st annual Academy Awards, HBO was offering up some surprises of its own when—just ahead of True Detective's season 3 finale—the network dropped a two-minute preview of what's to come in 2019.

In addition to featuring sneak peeks at some of HBO's most anticipated new series, movies, and specials—including Catherine the Great, His Dark Materials, Chernobyl, Watchmen, Euphoria, Mrs. Fletcher, and the Deadwood movie—the promo featured footage from some returning favorites, including Veep, Barry, Silicon Valley, Big Little Lies, and Succession. But the most exciting moment of all might have been the tiny preview of brand-new footage from Game of Thrones season 8.

The brief scene shows the Unsullied arriving at Winterfell, with Drogon flying above them. While onlookers huddle together, seemingly terrified at what they see, Arya Stark looks more fascinated than frightened.

It may not reveal a lot, but fans of the epic series will take anything they can get at this point. Let the fan theories fly!

Game of Thrones will return for its final season on April 14, 2019.

Watch One Second From Every Game of Thrones Episode in Under Two Minutes

Game of Thrones aired its final episode on May 19, and despite some harsh reviews, many fans are finding it hard to accept the show’s end. While some consider Thrones counseling or rewatching the series with a tissue box handy, others on the internet are creating really cool montage videos.

Twitter user Andy Kelly recently posted a fan-made video of one-second clips from all 73 Game of Thrones episodes. The video shows the most memorable scenes from the series, such as Ned Stark’s decapitation, the Red Wedding, King Joffrey being poisoned, Jon Snow’s resurrection, the killing of the Night King, and Daenerys Targaryen’s death.

You really can’t capture all of the action-packed events and shocking twists that happened within the eight seasons of Game of Thrones so quickly, but the video does a good job of giving encapsulating it in under two minutes. And it’s easier than binge-watching it again.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Us What a Game of Thrones/Full House Mashup Would Look Like

Two of the least-similar shows in television history just came together … in a parody courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The hilarious video depicts a hypothetical Game of Thrones spinoff series where Jaime Lannister joins two classic characters from Full House for a show appropriately titled Full House Lannister.

While there is at least one Thrones spinoff already in the works, Kimmel couldn’t wait for the series to premiere, so he made his own to deal with the post-Thrones blues.

The video starts off in typical Full House fashion with Joey (Dave Coulier) trying to open a pickle jar, which Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) stabs with his sword and destroys. After a few pun-filled jokes, Jaime gets upset and Danny (Bob Saget) sits down with him to talk. Jaime explains that he had a fight with his sister, but when he reveals it’s because he got Cersei pregnant again, a creeped out Danny flees the situation. Joey then comes over to seemingly console Jaime, but instead hilariously says, “I was just going to tell you to stop f***ing your sister.”

The parody perfectly combines the silliness of Full House and the darker topics of Game of Thrones—and the cherry on top is a shadow of a dragon flying over San Francisco in the credits.
