With the highly-anticipated sixth season of HBO's Game Of Thrones only three months away, fans are anxiously waiting by their computer screens for any newly-released information about the show.
Via Twitter, Game Of Thrones asked fans to pledge allegiance to one of three major houses: Stark, Lannister, or Targaryen. By using the hashtag associated with one of the houses, the user then received a teaser video featuring a tattered house banner waving in the wind with a short clip of dialogue.
Watch the three clips below:
With only 25 second clips, we don't get too much information about what's to come in Season Six. So ... we just have to analyze every little detail that we DO have.
In the Stark teaser, the banner looks as though it's been shredded by ... wolves? There is an intense storm with a focus on the dark sky and lightning strikes. A change in power perhaps? It's the voice though that provides the most information. Are we finally getting a sense for what Bran's been up to? He sounds confident ... which never leads to success in the realm.
The Targaryen teaser features a banner that's been scarred by fire. While we don't know specifically who is speaking (in Valyrian), one thing is very clear: Danaerys will be stripped of her power (and of her followers) this season.
The Lannister teaser sets a different tone, focusing rather on a sunset, symbolizing the death of their golden reign. The echoes of "shame" can be heard behind the lead voice, who hints at the lack of Lannister wealth being a major plot point this season. Their banner is also ripped apart, but the narrator promises that unity within their house will lead to their continued strength.
So what do all three of these teasers tell us about Season Six?
The underdog is fighting back, with vengeance, against the established power. And though this concept is the entire point of Game Of Thrones, there's something about this season that just feels so much darker.
Choose your allegiance wisely, and be sure to retweet your banner to bring honor to your house! Game Of Thrones returns to HBO on April 24, 2016.
