SPOILER ALERT: Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1 Revealed What Happened To Ed Sheeran’s Soldier
It’s fair to say that Ed Sheeran’s brief Game of Thrones cameo, in which he played a warbling Lannister soldier, didn’t get a great reception from fans of the show. It’s also fair to say that absolutely hated it.
The vitriolic backlash—which included many people demanding that Arya’s dire wolf tear Sheeran’s soldier limb from limb—ultimately helped to drive the singer-songwriter off of social media. The character never returned, and Twitter’s cruel bloodlust went unsatiated.
Until now, that is. The long-awaited Game of Thrones season 8 opener alludes to the fate of Sheeran’s soldier after his meeting with Arya in last season's premiere—and it’s even grislier than a dire wolf attack.
