We were on the edge of our seats during the Viper's battle in this past season of Game of Thrones, but did Oberyn Martell himself have any idea what might happen? During Comic-Con, we asked actor Pedro Pascal what was going through the Viper's head during that scene. Spoilers ahead.

As a treat to fans, Pascal poured the first glasses of Ommegang's fourth Game of Thrones-themed beer, Valar Morghulis, a very tasty Abbey Dubbel. After raising his glass and taking the first sip, Pascal served some of his very excited fans.

Afterward, we got a chance to ask Pascal a few questions about the Viper's brutal battle with the Mountain:

Do you think your death scene overshadowed Joffrey's?

Was there anything you were told about the Viper's mindset during the battle that we might not have been aware of as viewers?

Did your character have any sense that he was going to die?
