Warning: if any spoilers exist past this point, you're obviously not the Game of Thrones fan we thought you were.
2016 is about to be a thing of the past, once we get through Christmas and the string of family events we will have to drag ourselves through, of course.
So while we regret all the mistakes we've made this year and think of the highlights that were being delivered a plot-twisting-action-packed season of Game of Thrones and finding a coffee place that doesn't burn the grind, we're looking ahead to greater things... like the seventh season of Game of Thrones.
It has been an agonising wait, our friends, and it feels like we have been tossed to Ramsay Bolton's hounds.
A little drastic? We think not.
So, now that Winter is here, after the longest freakin' wait ever (seriously, don't they know how seasons work?!) and the storm is finally coming, we're biting our nails in preparation to battle the blizzard of mind-blowing twists the next season will whirl our way.
... And our very first look at it all has just made its debut.
Three very quick looks.
The kind of looks Arya was throwing around last season with her glazed over eyes... blind looks that have our minds going at a hundred miles an hour trying to figure out:
a) Where the hell are our favourite characters?
b) Will our fave family finally reunite?
c) Is Sansa going to become the bad ass we know she is?
d) Does Jon Snow finally know something... anything? (And has he learnt his lessoon: Listen to Sansa).
There are too many questions to list.
Hold the door, here's your first fleeting look at Game of Thrones season seven.
The teaser may have come and gone as quickly as Joffrey's reign, but we'll take every bit of GOT goss to get our daily fix.
Prepare for the storm, folks...
The storm of Christmas shoppers that will be unleashed on you when you do your last minute gift grabbing, and the one that will come when season seven finally graces us with its presence.
