HBO reveals two new clips from 'Game of Thrones' Season 5

We're all anxiously awaiting the next season of HBO's hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones." Meanwhile, HBO continues to taunt us with new footage ahead of the season premiere on April 12.

Winter is coming, but it's sure taking its sweet time to get here. The premiere for Season 5 of HBO's hit fantasy series is still more than three agonizing weeks away, and on Wednesday HBO revealed two new clips from the upcoming season that leave us wanting more.

Both clips are extensions of scenes we've already seen in trailers and the Three Eyed Raven promotion HBO ran earlier in 2015. In the first clip, we see Jon Snow talking with the now-prisoner Mance Rayder about how Rayder has spent his life convincing 90 wildling clans to come together for the first time in history, and how he should be mindful of that as he decides what to do next. The conversation leads up to Snow asking Rayder if the clans' survival is more important than Rayder's pride. We've seen the curt answer to that in previous leaks.

The second clip expands on the conversation between Tyrion Lannister and Lord Varys, leading up to the line where Varys basically suggests that Daenerys Targaryen is the leader the Seven Kingdom needs right now. In the clip, Tyrion asks Varys why Varys would risk his life to save him, and isn't satisfied with the answer that Jaime Lannister basically told him to. When pressed, Varys reveals he helped Tyrion for the Seven Kingdoms, stating that "men of talent have a part to play in the war to come."

Check out the clips for yourself at the top and bottom of this post, then start the countdown to Season 5 of "Game of Thrones," which is slated to debut worldwide on April 12.
