A series of very brief “Game of Thrones” clips are teasing fans with hints as to what exactly will happen to various key characters in the newest season of the HBO drama.

One clip featuring wry court schemer Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) has the camera zooming through stone hallways until it arrives at Tyrion, sitting in what looks like a prison cell.

“Come for a last look?” he inquires.

Another trailer shows what’s happening with hopeful queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who has conquered a few kingdoms but finds herself struggling to keep control over her three dragons.

“They can never be tamed,” her advisor Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) tells her. “Not even by their mother.”

Meanwhile, a third clip shows what’s happening with the Stark family.

“The first time I saw you, you were just a child,” king’s counselor Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) tells oldest daughter Sansa (Sophie Turner). “A girl from the North come to the capital for the first time. You’re not a child anymore.” 

Flashes show Sansa’s brother Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and sister Arya (Maisie Williams) as well as her half-brother Jon Snow (Kit Harington).

Intriguing, “Thrones” fans? The fourth season of the show debuts on April 6.
