In the real world, winter has been and gone - which, for Game Of Thrones fans, is a sign that we've almost reached the final season of HBO's stunning fantasy epic. The level of secrecy that's surrounded the final season for one of the most popular and buzzworthy entertainment franchises of all time reached unprecedented levels this time around, which Entertainment Weekly got a behind-the-scenes look at in a new piece here.

The nearly 2 minute long trailer opens with a monologue from Arya, features plenty of glimpses of the Daenerys' dragons, some longing looks between Dany and Jon Snow and a glimpse at the epic final battle scene.

It also shows armies marching, riding and sailing toward what is sure to be a final major battle with the evil white walkers. And yes, we catch a glimpse of the Night King as well.

That will happen on April 14th on HBO, and we can't wait for what will likely be the television event of the year. "Our enemy doesn't tire, doesn't stop, doesn't feel", Snow warns ominously.

James Ward-Prowse thought he had earned the Saints a valuable point when he scored a free-kick 15 minutes from time, but the visitors suffered a late setback.

In the trailer, we can see Arya talking about how "Death has many faces" and how she is "excited to see this one". "I love this, it's been the best thing in my life, I'll miss it one day - but I'm done'". To prepare, Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya, had to begin training one year before filming began Williams told Entertainment Weekly, "I skip the battle every year, which is weird since Arya's the one who's been training the most". It is just about as epic as we could have hoped for.

This season is going to play out a little differently than those in the past, opting for six 90-minute installments instead of the eight hour-long episodes. I suspect many people are waiting to see Lena Headey's villainous Cersei finally getting what's coming to her, and full blown dragon on undead dragon action.

It's all come down to this - the long-awaited ending to the series we first started bingeing in 2011.

Who do you think will sit upon the Iron Throne once all is said and done?
