Game of Thrones premiered to much fanfare and the "coincidental" deletion of Ed Sheeran's Twitter account last week. Following the hyped premiere, the show's cast showed up at Comic-Con's Hall H Friday afternoon to discuss their return to the screen and unveil a teaser trailer for the weeks ahead on the show.

The teaser is, of course, just a teaser, but it hints at some storylines. One, in particular—Missandei and Grey Worm, anyone? Melisandre also returns to tell Daenerys about the role the Lord of Light will play, despite Dany's determination to rule the seven kingdoms. To find out what really happens, we'll have to stay tuned every Sunday night.

The cast was far from the deep cold of Winterfell during their fun and raucous panel. Kristian Nairn (a.k.a. Hodor) returned to moderate. Alfie Allen brought a puppy, while Sophie Turner says Sansa's rose-colored glasses are long gone. "She's woke now," she told the audience, "she's real woke."

When asked what law they would enact as King or Queen of Westeros (given the chance), Gwendoline Christie said that women should be knights, and Liam Cunningham encouraged "free Dornish wine." The panel, which also included Jacob Anderson, had to say which character they wish could come back to life. Sophie Turner shouted out long-dead Joffrey, because she "really loved working with Jack Gleeson."

New episodes of Game of Thrones premiere every Sunday at 10 p.m. on HBO.
