The eighth and final season of the hit HBO drama Game of Thrones premieres in just over one month, and in anticipation of the beginning of the end, HBO has released the first full-length trailer for Season 8.

While there are only two minutes of footage, though, we still learned some key information about the upcoming season. So, with that in mind, here are six things we learned from the Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer:

1Arya Has Dragonglass

Feature Detail

Early on in the trailer, we see Arya Stark running from someone… or something. Soon after, though, we hear her say, “I know death. He’s got many faces. I look forward to seeing this one.” Meanwhile, the young Stark girl is clutching what appears to be a dragonglass blade. This is important, of course, because dragonglass is one of the two items capable of killing White Walkers, the other being Valyrian steel (which she also possesses).

2The Golden Company Is Coming

Feature Detail

At the end of Season 7, Euron Greyjoy set off to Essos to bring the Golden Company to Westeros and ensure Cersei maintains her iron grip on the Iron Throne. Here, we see the Golden Company in the flesh, meaning Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen will likely be fighting a war on two fronts, as the White Walkers and the Night King won’t be their only concerns.
