It is a pattern with which we have become quite familiar: HBO trickles out tiny droplets of information about the highly-anticipated final season of Game of Thrones—or the many prequels currently in development—and the internet goes wild. Yet, the latest crop of images, released yesterday, are actually very telling. Sure, to the untrained eye, they may look like a series of portraits of the lead actors brooding off into the distance, a lot can be gleaned if you know what to look for (and we do).

Here, based on our very expert opinions, is what you can expect on your last trip to Westeros:

Daenarys almost dies from forcing this smile as she listens to that emo kid explain that he's the Three-Eyed Raven.
