Game of Thrones Season 6 trailer: Tyrion and Drogon and Cersei and Jaqen and...

For all of y'all human non-bots reading these words, it's very likely that you've been thinking about and chatting excitedly with friends and co-workers about Game of Thrones Season 6 (premieres on April 24th, 2016 at 9:00/8:00c on HBO).

HBO for its part is doing a masterful job of building excitement and anticipation, and a large reason for that is with just how amazing -- and I'm not using that word lightly -- the trailers for the new Game of Thrones season are looking.

The latest Game of Thrones Season 6 trailer is no different on the amazing (and feel free to proclaim that word a la Jason Schwartzman's Gideon "G Man" Graves character in Scott Pilgram vs. the World: Ah-MAZE-ing!). Check it:

There's so much to dig into here, portending an action packed and momentous season to come. What's wonderful, as all Game of Thrones fans know, is that so much has been meticulously set up over the previous five seasons is now poised to collide, and all of this under the specter that that which we've been told many times (read = winter is coming) is indeed nigh.

“Are you afraid? You should be. You’re in the great game now," Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) says. Anytime we get to spend with Tyrion is great and entertaining fun, and surely now that he's in the court of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in the east, there's going to be lots of things to behold.

And indeed, we briefly see Drogon the dragon flying over what looks to be a hundreds or thousands of horses in the trailer. Perhaps a battlefield? We seem to be inching closer and closer to a cataclysmic battle involving Daenerys heading to Westeros with an army replete with the Unsullied (as elite and bad ass a squad as you'll find) and a potential game changing dragon.

Speaking of Westeros, we see the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) saying: “We are sinful creatures. We deserve death. We all do." And we also see a still short haired Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) for a brief moment. So there's much to go down as yet in King's Landing, obviously. The return of Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) will certainly play a factor -- even though Ser Jaime is one-handed at this point in the story, I have a feeling that he's still no slouch.

Further north, we see Ramsay Snow AKA The Bastard of Bolton with an army of his own. I'll editorialize here and say if there's one person amongst many evil and nasty folk on this show that we as the audience hope gets his (or hers), it'd be the sociopathic and manipulative Ramsay

And as Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) chimes in from The House of Black and White: "One way or the other, a face will be added to the hall."

Finally, and perhaps most significant of all to this story, we get the return of Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), who we see for the briefest of moments in what we can only assume is imminent peril when that creepy White Walker general guy seizes his arm north of The Wall.

And to that, I can only say: Hodor!
