Yahoo TV

"Game of Thrones" Season 3 premieres in just a dozen days (yes, we're counting the days … minutes … and seconds!), and HBO is stoking fans' fervor with a new trailer featuring more action-packed footage.

The first trailer gave us a glimpse of Daenerys Targaryen's baby dragons, but the second one shows us just how much they've grown -- and what havoc they can wreak.

Here's our second-by-second breakdown of the sneak peek:

0:02 - A small dragon flies over the ocean.

0:07 - On a ship, a waiting Daenerys Targaryen and Ser Jorah Mormont look up.

0:13 - Tyrion Lannister looks at the reflection of his scarred face in a mirror. "How long does it go on?" he asks.

0:15 - "Until we've dealt with all our enemies," replies sister Cersei.

0:16 - Robb Stark looks grim.
