The final season of Game of Thrones is halfway here, and fans are desperate for any glance they can get of the show's eighth season. A personal favorite, The Deuce, is set to return, and a snippet of the James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal show is displayed during the preview.

This is for the fans clamouring for any morsel of the new season.

As you can see, the clips featuring GoT scenes are mainly comprised from old footage but there's a tantalising glimpse of a reunion between Jon and Sansa at Winterfell. This is going to be TV on a scale that not even Game of Thrones has done before.

Want more stuff like this? It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reunion between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), both looking a little anxious since, y'know, the Wall came down at the end of Season 7.
