Game Of Thrones Finally Introduces The Sand Snakes! And Then Kills Someone Who Doesn’t Die In The Books!

The circle of life on Game of Thrones: characters you love die, new characters you’ll grow to love get introduced. Probably only to die later on.

Let’s start with the non-spoilery new characters part!

On Sunday night’s Sons Of The Harpy, we actually got to meet the daughters of The Viper!

It turns out the dear departed and sorely missed Oberyn Martell — consummate lover that he was — had multiple illegitimate daughters.

Known collectively as the Sand Snakes, the girls were shown in their intro to be totally ruthless — burying a man up to his neck in the sand and letting scorpions crawl on him!

Good thing for them the man wasn’t Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!

Srsly though, we love these girls already! They’re fierce and fabulous and most definitely out for revenge for the death of their father.

We just hope that vengeance doesn’t come down on Jaime Lannister, who is sneaking into Dorne to get his niece/daughter.

On the other side of the world, we have some loss coming.


Just as Khaleesi is about to get a new ally in Tyrion Lannister, it looks like she may have lost two at the hands to the titular Sons Of The Harpy!

When a group attacks Grey Worm and his unsullied, Ser Barristan Selmy steps in, and they’re able to slay all the assassins — but not without suffering grievous wounds!

But it appears from next week’s episode preview that Grey Worm survives… Selmy may not have been so lucky though.

This a big departure from the books, one of those deaths author George R.R. Martin mentioned that happen on the show only.

We guess no one is safe now.

Hmm, maybe Selmy also has some badass daughters somewhere…
