Game of Thrones' season 5 is coming, and with it, teasers, clips, and photos that remind us how much we've been pining for the show's return since last June. We have two clips and some photos for you, courtesy of HBO.

In the first clip, Tyrion asks Varys why he helped Tyrion escape from Westeros. "I didn't do it for you," Varys says. Of course. But where we may have thought Varys is self-interested, we have learned over the last four seasons, the eunuch is more civic-minded than that. "I did it for the Seven Kingdoms," he says.

Although we do not know where Tyrion and Varys currently are, we can make two guesses: He and 1) They could be in Pentos, where Varys has a friend and ally in Illyrio, who if you recall, is the man who brokered the marriage between Daenerys and Khal Drogo, or 2) they can be in Meereen, on their way to join forces with Daenerys.

In the second clip, we get a conversation between Mace Rayder and Jon Snow. Prior to this, Jon had betrayed Mance by swearing allegiance to him, all the while belonging to the Night's Watch. Mance has every right to run Jon through with a sword. Instead, he listens while Jon drops some knowledge on their situation.

As for the photos, some of these characters we know very well, and some we'll be getting to know. And if we're lucky, some of them will survive to the end of the season.
