Game of Thrones season 7 is almost here, and while winter may finally be coming, so is a war — a great one.

With the HBO drama returning in July for its second to last season, the stakes are sure to be that much higher and the fights that much greater. After all, what’s a season of GOT without all the high drama and battle sequences?

During the Cannes Film Festival, Gwendoline Christie, who plays the towering Brienne of Tarth, gave a quick tease to Elle about what’s to come in the upcoming season.

“Season seven is where things really start to heat up,” Christie told Elle on the Cannes carpet, “and you start to see unlikely combinations, unlikely attitudes, and unlikely acts.”

So, if season 7 promises to “heat up,” what have we been doing these past six seasons? Being cool and calm? We don’t think so!

Christie’s tease basically confirms that the upcoming season  is going to be even more intense and full of suspense than any we’ve seen, and we can’t wait.

Plus, the idea of “unlikely combinations” of any sort has us asking a lot of questions. Does this involve characters teaming up for battle? Or maybe it has to do with family members becoming friends and/or foes? There are so many possibilities!

What do you think will happen on GOT season 7?

Tune in to find out what Christie means when Game of Thrones returns on July 16, 2017 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
