But they discover some grim new additions: three effigies marking their own graves. 

The 90-second clip opens with a torch-bearing Snow walking the passages of the crypt, passing the tomb of Lyanna Stark, whom he believes was his aunt but was in fact his mother.

Without glancing at it, his movement disturbs the feather in her hands to the ground, the one that had been placed there by her husband King Robert Baratheon in the very first episode.  

‘You have to protect him,’ the dying Lyanna’s voice whispers, the last thing she made her brother Ned Stark promise before she died, entrusting him to raise Jon as his own.

Elsewhere in the crypt Sansa is seen passing the statue of her mother, Catelyn Stark.

‘All this horror that has come to my family… it’s all because I couldn’t love a motherless child,’ her long-dead voice whispers, referring to Jon, whom she died not knowing was her husband’s nephew, rather than his bastard son.

Finally Arya, the youngest surviving Stark, is too seen stalking the catacombs alone.

When Jon passes his father Ned’s sepulcher, his voice from the past also echos through.

‘You are a Stark,’ Eddard’s memory half-truthfully reminds him, as he is technically a Targaryen. ‘You may not have my name, but you have my blood.’

All three siblings/cousins then silently meet at an intersection, and turn to see the three creepy new statues of themselves staring back. 

Arya’s — depicted with her sword Needle drawn — and Sansa’s look exactly like their living counterparts at their current age, while Snow’s looks a little older.

Suddenly a chill wind blows through the crypts and extinguishes the torches; a frost creeps along the floor and freezes the fallen feather in place.

Jon draws Longclaw and Arya draws Needle, and all three turn to face the menace that never appears.

The teaser concludes with the confirmation that fans have just 91 days to wait for the first of the final six episodes of Game Of Thrones to descend on HBO.
