It was leaked Ed would appear on the show back in March (17), but few people expected him to show up in season seven's premiere, which aired in America on Sunday night (16Jul17).

According to showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Sheeran was primarily cast to surprise Williams, who is apparently a huge fan of the singer. "You'd think you'd be better at handling the Game of Thrones traffic by now" said another. Others shared their dark hopes for his character as the show progresses.

The first six seasons of Game of Thrones are already streaming on Netflix and have been for quite a while.

Sheeran sang during his fleeting appearance in the death-filled episode, Dragonstone, in the first episode of the penultimate series of the TV drama.

Ryan Giggs: 'Romelu Lukaku will be under constant scrutiny at Manchester United'
The Red Devils finished sixth in the Premier League but won the EFL Cup and Europa League last term. He'll know how things work and it's just about dealing with the pressure.

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), who is now a trained poisoner and throat-slitter continues on her vengeance mission on the killers of her family at the Red Wedding.

Naturally, the guys ask Arya to hang out, and she joins their little group for dinner.

While other fans wrote, "Am the only @GameOfThrones fan that doesn't get to watch the premiere tonight cause HBO has been processing for hours..."

"It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before", Arya says. The youngest living Stark girl shares her plans to "kill the Queen" with Sheeran's character and his cohort, but they're certain she's joking.

An intense thunderstorm sent water, mud, and debris rushing down a mountain into the river below flooding the narrow canyon. Rescuers got to the four victims quickly after the crew heard their cries while they were nearby helping an injured hiker.

The Independent points out a juicy Easter egg embedded just for Harry Potter fans in the scene with Samwell Tarly and Archmaester Ebrose, played by Jim Broadbent.

On the next episode of "Game of Thrones" season 7, titled "Stormborn", Arya will finally reunite with her long-lost friend and ally, Nymeria.

Although not much is revealed by HBO about the "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Episode 2, the synopsis as well as the trailer provide some hints about the upcoming episode titled, "Stormborn".
