Thank the gods, old and new, for the 15 sexy as bleep photos HBO just released to promote "Game of Thrones" Season 7.

The photos show most of our favorites in action, from Dany in brand new Westerosi attire to Tormund once again giving Brienne THAT look. We live.

Here's a breakdown of each pic:

• Above, you can see Daenerys Targaryen and her crew -- Missandei, Tyrion Lannister, Varys, and Grey Worm.

Here are Tormund and Brienne, reuniting at last for more ogling.Petyr Baelish and Sansa Stark look like they're plotting from Winterfell. Are they looking down at King Jon Snow and planning to take over?The Hound is back. He's surrounded by soldiers, although he does not seem to be in fighting mode himself. Is he being taken to The North? Will he reunite with Sansa Stark, and/or Arya Stark, and/or Brienne?Queen Cersei Lannister still rules the Seven Kingdoms from the Iron Throne and -- despite that odd look Jaime gave his twin in the Season 6 finale -- Jaime is still by her side.Speaking of Arya Stark, here she is. But where is she -- some kind of pub? -- and what is she doing?These two. Love love love. Sam is continuing his training at the Citadel while Gilly now knows enough to help him with his research.It has sucked to be Bran Stark since the end of the pilot episode, but now they don't even have Hodor to help drag him around. Meera Reed and Bran are suffering out there in the cold, but we'll need the wisdom and visions of the new Three-eyed Raven in the Great War against the White Walkers.Look at our gorgeous Queen Dany. She came to rule, whether she starts her reign in King's Landing or not. She looks like she's already listening to an audience at her own court. Unless she's seeking an audience with Queen Cersei in King's Landing? Can't wait to see how she takes control.Here he is: King Jon Snow. The ice to Dany's fire. He's the reluctant ruler of the North, as decided for him by still another group of people in the Season 6 finale. He tried to give the North to Sansa, but nope. He can't get a rest.Ser Davos is so Team Jon he even pushed for Melisandre to bring Jon back from the dead -- something he never asked her about for all of the other dead people he knew, including King Stannis and his own children.All Hail the Mini Queen! This looks like a shot straight out of the Season 6 finale, when Lyanna Momont spoke up to suggest Jon as King in the North. There's Littlefinger in the background, glancing over at Sansa and planning his next move.Dany's loyal sidekick, Missandei, is still with her -- in her own Westerosi attire -- in Season 7. We've heard she and Grey Worm have some fun at some point this year. Ahem.Varys ended Season 6 joining Team Dany and now here he is, looking wary -- as one of her advisers?Tyrion is Dany's Hand of the King but he does not look pleased in this outdoor photo, standing in front of her army.

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 premieres Sunday, July 16 on HBO.
