It looks like it's going to be a really long wait for the premiere of "Game of Thrones" Season 7. The highly anticipated next chapter of the HBO series finally has an air date, which means the carnage will begin in July. But who will be the first to meet their ends in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 1? There is a possibility that the seventh season will somehow mirror what happened in its direct predecessor.

The deaths in "Game of Thrones" are not exactly rare, but most of the characters that get killed off seem to have some strange significance. Fans have noted that the way Arya Stark slit Walder Frey's throat in the previous season finale was filled with symbolism, since it resembled how Catelyn Stark was murdered in the Red Wedding. Could something similar happen in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 1? Would this confirm the deaths of the Sand Snakes?

Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes were responsible for the first major deaths in the premiere of the sixth season. Tyene had killed Areo Hotah while Ellaria stabbed Prince Doran Martell. At the same time, Obara and Nymeria murdered Doran's son Trystane Martell. Now there are speculations that at least two of the murderous Dornish women will end up dead in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 1.

Watchers on the Wall has already reported that Indira Varma and Rosabell Laurenti Sellers have been filming for the seventh season. However, there has been no sign of Keisha Castle-Hughes and Jessica Henwick, who play Obara and Nymeria Sand respectively. This has led to speculations that the two Sand Snakes will be the first to bite the dust in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 1. In addition to that, their deaths could display just how vicious Euron Greyjoy will be in the series.

According to ScreenCrush, Euron Greyjoy could launch an attack on Daenerys Targaryen's fleet while they are at sea. The battle could lead to the death of two Sand Snakes while Euron captures Ellaria and Tyene. "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 1 will air on July 16, as per TVLine.
