The moment is buried in one of the US broadcaster’s “here’s what’s coming this year” trailers, which also features footage from Big Little Lies season two, True Detective season three and a first look at Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen adaptation.

It sees Daenerys (flanked by lover/nephew Jon Snow) entering Winterfell and meeting Sansa Stark for the first time. “Winterfell is yours, your grace” Sansa tells her. Check out the short clip below.

Information on the new series is unsurprisingly scarce, even though we’re only three months away from its launch. Last week, show-runner DB Weiss hinted that things are going to get very awkward between Daenerys and Jon Snow when they find out about his parentage…

The full clip from the Globes also gives us our first look at Meryl Streep in action in Big Little Lies series two as Mary Louise Wright, mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard), who is intent on finding out what happened to her son. Watch the teaser below.
