Game of Thrones Season 5 Video: Jon Lobbies Mance, Tyrion Talks War — Plus: Sand Snake Pics and More

Game of Thrones Jon Tyrion Video Season 5

“I believe men of talent have a part to play in the war to come.”

Varys declares that, verbatim, to Tyrion in one of two new videos heralding Game of Thrones‘ upcoming fifth season — but Jon implies the exact same sentiment while talking with Mance Rayder in the other.

HBO on Wednesday released two snippets from Season 5 — which premieres April 12 (9/8c) — as well as a handful of new shots from episodes to come.

The videos give us a brief glimpse of Jon exhorting the King Beyond the Wall to join Stannis Baratheon in the battle ahead, and of Tyrion and Varys discussing why the Spider freed Kingslayer 2.0.

After you’ve watched the clips below (which may look familiar to fans who signed up with a while back), be sure to scroll through our updated photo gallery to get your first look at the Sand Snakes (the seriously scary daughters of the slain Oberyn Martell), a grown-up Myrcella (Joffrey’s sister, who was sent to Dorne a while back) and much more.

    Oh good, Obara’s as…erm…unattractive as she is in the books. I was worried since Keisha Castle-Hughes is most definitely not an unattractive woman.

  2. One way to effectivvely chookse a wedding veil style for your wedding day is to look through
    the plethora of styles that fill the pages of thhe bridal magazines.
    Planning your wedding is connected to a lot of hard work aand even a bit
    of chaos. Isn’t it nice to find a wedding photographer who will worrk with you.

    Can’t wait to see this show again…..i’m freakin hooked! When it’s all said and done I think Khaleesi is going storm back into Westros and take back the Iron Throne, she has the army of men to pull it off and right now she’s the strongest one in the game. Plus the dragon that Tyrion is going to see is that the one that Khaleesi is missing?

    • Joey says:

      ….You are aware that her name isn’t Khaleesi, right? As long as her storyline roughly follows the books, she has more than enough on her plate this season without worrying about invading Westeros.

    • Besides, how can she “take back” the throne that never belonged to her in the first place?

      I don’t agree that she’s the strongest one in the game, either. She has her 10,000 Unsullied, and her army of stomachs with feet; but even after their battles, both Stannis and Tommen have larger armies than she. As for the people rising up in support of her, I cannot find a single instance in he real world where a deposed ruler has returned and had that happen — though many have tried, and mostly died for their error.
