HBO debuted new footage from the much awaited eighth and final season of epic fantasy show Game of Thrones on Sunday during the 76th Golden Globe Awards. The 4-second clip was enough to get the fans screaming in unison after waiting for a new season for almost two years.
The new footage, which features three pivotal figures -- Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark -- of the series, was unveiled in a combined teaser of the network’s 2019 line-up. In the brief footage, Daenerys is seen being introduced to Sansa, who currently holds the fort at Winterfell, by Jon after their arrival from Dragonstone.“Winterfell is yours, your grace,” Sansa says to Daenerys. The two character’s meet and greet is the first time they have shared the screen space together since the show premiered in 2011.
Fans took to Twitter to react on the small clip with memes, jokes and a lot of screaming in capital letters. “I’m so ready for this! #GameofThrones,” wrote a fan, “Look at Dany and Sansa’s expressions I’M SO READY THE HYPE IS REAL,” wrote another. Check out the funniest reactions to the clip:

So the Starks spent years fighting to get winterfell back, then Jon just handed it over to Dany (mother of dragons) in one scene. Wow.— BLJackson🍷☕📕🤔 (@JacksonBrittsny) January 7, 2019
I can see why sansa is not happy here. This is a mess, no matter how much we like Dany.#gameofthrones pic.twitter.com/KgZ7Rq25AP
