Everyone’s Tweeting Out Loud About Ed Sheeran on ‘Game of Thrones’

We all knew Ed Sheeran was going to have a cameo on Game of Thrones this season, we just didn’t know when. Maisie Williams is a huge Sheeran fan and the showrunners made her wish come true. Because who wants to piss off Arya Stark, right?! We were hoping he might end up slaughtered and perhaps brutally mutilated – this IS Game of Thrones, after all – but, we were just thinking out loud.

The internet was shocked when Sheeran’s sweet, infectious vocals suddenly serenaded all of us in the premiere episode, “Dragonstone.” And then there he was, in Lannister armor, eating a rabbit and singing the number one hit on the Westeros charts with his band in a forest. Okay, not an actual band, but a band of brothers in arms. They invited Arya to come and eat rabbit, too, because they had plenty and their moms taught them to be nice to strangers, and DID WE MENTION ED SHEERAN WAS THERE??!

In true Twitter form, Sheeran’s abrupt cameo came with mixed reception, and they are all hilarious. Let’s look at the best freak-outs together.
