    And Oberyn is not an outlier. There are a lot of other notable characters that did not last long and have been interesting, like Ned, Robert, Drogo, etc. Or even literal nobodies that have left me with lasting impressions, such as Dickon or the fookin' Legend of Gin Alley (for another scene of whose, zvelf, I'd sacrifice all of Olenna's \(fear\) )! And you can say that for all the seasons the NK has been a part of the show, he has been in precious few scenes and due to his nature is basically a non-character, yet I still am very interested in him because of his status and the menace he personifies. Heck, Arthur Dayne had just one friggin' flashback fight! Was it not better than a billion of the scenes the show's stars have been in and worthy of inclusion?

    There absolutely is plenty of time to introduce new and interesting characters, be they major or minor. It's been done time and again. Not to mention, someone correct me if I'm wrong, didn't Davos point at the Golden Company as a possible mercenary army for Stannis way back? So they're not new guys, technically... \(teehee\)

And don't forget Lyanna Mormont. Yes, I agree they can still introduce good new characters. I'm just not sure the writers are in the right frame of mind to do it, not after they flubbed Euron.
