If this nail-biting new trailer is any indication, the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones is going to be even more epic than usual. While it's skimpy on plot details, the minute-and-a-half-long teaser does feature loads of swords, terrifyingly huge dragons, eerie one-liners and dazzling CGI Targaryen armies.

One of the most intriguing snippets features a conversation between Cersei (Lena Headey) and Thrones newcomer Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal): "What good is power if you cannot protect the ones you love?," Cersei asks, with the latter responding, "We can avenge them." Fans can also catch brief glimpses of Sansa (Sophie Turner) mourning over her family and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) offering a dramatic warning: "We mustn't disappoint father."

The season's first episode, "Two Swords," will premiere Sunday, April 6th on HBO. "There is tremendous clamor for revenge, especially in the wake of the Red Wedding," showrunner David Benioff said in a previously released video teasing the new season, while promising fans "bloody confrontations" and "some of the most shocking and mind-blowing scenes in the entire series."
