HBO’s New Teaser Poster for Game of Thrones Has Fans Absolutely Freaking Out

Could it mean what it seems to mean? (Possible spoilers)

If you watched the most recent Game of Thrones finale, you're probably going to be a bit shocked to see the poster for next season.

(I'm not really sure how to avoid potential spoilers here, so if you're not caught up on the series, you might want to go find something else to read about for a bit.)

In the poster, Jon Snow's not looking great, but he's also not looking … very dead. Since HBO's version of the series has now caught up with George R.R. Martin's books, even die-hard fans of the novels aren't sure what to expect from the next season, so this poster is quite a bold way to market the next season.

Oh, and that season is five months away. So you've got plenty of time to wonder, theorize and throw around words like "skinchanger."

Here are examples of the Twitter reactions you probably expected:
