  • HBO Unveils First Footage of 'Game of Thrones' Season 8, 'Watchmen,' 'Big Little Lies' Season 2 (Watch)

During the Golden Globes, HBO has released their yearly teaser showing off the highly-anticipated slate of shows set to debut or continue (or conclude) in 2019. The brief clips previews the first time the eldest Stark daughter has met the Dragon Queen.

In a new promo for HBO's 2019 seasons, we are shown Sansa Stark's first meeting with Daenerys Targaryen, who arrives in Winterfell with Jon Snow.

Last season saw Jon Snow bend the knee to serve Daenerys in her quest to take the Iron Throne and become the queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

There's a chance that she might be looking at Daenerys over Jon's shoulder.

Given that the Game of Thrones portion of this new HBO content reel is only a few seconds long, there isn't a whole lot to go off - but we do feel that it doesn't reveal the whole story. We know the northerners don't like bowing to foreign deities, and Jon didn't exactly ask their permission before pledging their allegiance to the daughter of the Mad King. The commercial also gives a first look at the new "Watchmen" series coming from "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof that is on its way to HBO later this year.

"Winterfell is yours, your grace", Sansa tells Daenerys.

The season is going to get ugly, and the breakdown of alliances, including families, is a real possibility.

Check out what's headed to HBO in 2019 in the video above.

As much as I'm dying to see how that WATCHMEN show is, I think my excitement for GAME OF THRONES' final season trumps my excitement for anything else this year other than AVENGERS: ENDGAME.
