GRRM reveals Strong Belwas has been cut

George R. R. Martin has dropped a Strong Belwas bombshell over on his Not A Blog. According to two comments he left in response to questions from his readers, the fan favorite character has been cut from the TV series. Strong Belwas is a pit fighter from Meereen who enters Dany’s service. His introduction in the book series came when Barristan joined Daenerys. Obviously that didn’t occur in the show, but the hope was that they would find a way to introduce him later on. Alas, according to Martin, that is not going to happen.

In other news gleaned from his blog’s comments, Martin revealed he will be writing the second episode of season 4 and that he has already turned in his script.
