TV fans (and TV bloggers) rejoice: HBO has just released its first batch of Game of Thrones photos from season 4. The network has put out 15 images, which include shots of most fan-favorite characters. There’s shots of Tyrion comforting sad Sansa, Dany in a billowing blue cloak, new characters The Red Viper and his lover Ellaria Sand and a sneering King Joffrey. Plus, there’s your first look at a bearded re-cast Daario (Michiel Huisman). Thrones returns for an action-packed fourth season on April 6. Here’s the other 14 images:

This is the “new” Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) the captain and commander of the sellsword company that strove to impress Dany last season.

Yes, that’s Jaime Lannister — now without his beard. But what’s that on his severed sword hand? Hm…

More new characters: Dornish Prince Oberyn Martell aka The Red Viper (Pedro Pascal) and his lover Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma).

Hey you know what’s even better than photos? A trailer! It’s like photos that move. If you haven’t seen the full season 4 Thrones trailer, go here.
