Warning: Do not read this if you haven’t yet seen season 8, episode 1 of “Game of Thrones”.
Ed Sheeran got one last shout-out during the season 8, episode 1 premiere of “Game of Thrones” Sunday night.
Sheeran faced a huge backlash after he played a Lannister soldier named Eddie in season 7. However, despite bosses previously acknowledging the fan reaction, that didn’t stop them mentioning the character once again during the latest series’ debut.
Some girls could be seen chatting about the Lannister boys that never made it back from the war in one scene.
One shared: “That boy Eddie came back with his face burned right off. He’s got no eyelids now.”
So, presumably, that means Sheeran’s character is no more.
Sheeran then took to his Instagram Story to comment on the latest episode.
