(Newser) – Game of Thrones fans are getting their first look at the upcoming eighth and final season of HBO's hit show—albeit a very, very brief look. io9 refers to "three seconds of footage" buried in a promotional video for a bunch of upcoming HBO shows; Fox News pegs it as even shorter, saying the scene "lasts only a second." The video, which also features a significant amount of footage from GoT season seven, includes a shot of (spoiler alert) Jon Snow and Sansa Stark apparently embracing in Winterfell.

Because they were last seen together at Castle Black, this indicates the scene takes place during a future season of the show, Entertainment Weekly reports. At io9, Beth Elderkin jokingly runs through a number of theories one might be able to parse from the footage, and people were pretty excited on Twitter. Meanwhile, rumors are flying that season eight might premiere later than originally expected. (Read more Game of Thrones stories.)
