The fifth season of Game of Thrones is finally only a few weeks away, but that doesn't mean we hardcore fans are fine sitting here twiddling our thumbs like normal people. No! We demand more previews of Season 5, both in video and photographic form!

Thankfully, HBO is obliging. The network has released two new (short) clips from the Season 5 premiere as well as several new photos for us to pore over. Take a look at all the new goodies below.

Here's where very Game of Thrones character is right now

In the first clip, Jon Snow chats with Mance Rayder about the real reason Mance has united the giants, the Wildlings and other North-of-the-Wall outcasts. In the second clip, Tyrion and Varys discuss Tyrion's role in the survival of the Seven Kingdoms. Naturally, Tyrion is thrilled to be part of the cause.

The photos, which you can see here, show off a grown-up Myrcella Baratheon and introduce you to the Sand Snakes, Oberyn Martell's rascally daughters.

Game of Thrones returns Sunday, Apr. 12 at 9pm on HBO.
