Unfortunately, 2014 does not appear to be the year in which the odious trend of teasers for teasers and trailers for trailers finally come to a very deserved end—rather, it appears that the frustrating trend (which, yes, we know we contribute to by writing about them) has spread into the world of television, because we now have five Vine teasers for the upcoming trailer for season four of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The five teasers don’t reveal much in the way of mega-spoilers; rather, they are content to offer slivers of shots of new character Oberyn Martell, as well as established folks like Daenerys, Jon Snow, and Tyrion.  All are shots from the full-length trailer, which you can’t put your eyes onto until this Sunday.   Check ‘em out:

For fans who are going bonkers while locked in the throes of Game of Thrones withdrawals (and who are too lazy to just read or re-read the books in the interim), take note: The full trailer for season four will air on HBO on Sunday, January 12 at 8:58 PM (right before the premiere of True  Detective), the 10-episode season will actually launch on Sunday, April 6.
