Ed Sheeran on ‘Game of Thrones’ was just silly

Ed Sheeran on ‘Game of Thrones’ was just silly


Hey cool kids, this post has spoilers for Season 7, episode one. So, like, don’t read unless you’ve watched. Duh. 

You know when you’re watching your favorite high fantasy television show and then this mega famous pop star just shows up in a scene and rips you out of the episode?

That was the feeling of many Game of Thrones fans when Ed Sheeran, of all people, sat in the woods singing a supposedly-Westeros-y song as Arya Stark rode by on her horse. And of course she dismounted, and of course there was a little bonding scene between her and the English pop star. 

Yeah, you know, the crazy popular musician who is BFF with Taylor Swift and has been damn near everywhere this year. That guy. In Game of Thrones. Why not? 

He even says the song he’s singing is a “new one,” basically screaming at you that you are watching a fictionalized show and nothing is true escapism here in the sorry realms of late capitalism.

If you watched this and this rando weird scene ripped you out of the episode you were far from alone. Many, many people were deep into the Seven Kingdoms when the ginger musician showed up and pierced the veil of their happy disbelief with his blue eyes. 

And here we are. Making jokes about that Ed Sheeran appearance on Game of Thrones. 

And the thought we all had:

OK, we can rest assured that he won’t be on the next episode, so we’ll have to just accept the fact that he won’t meet the usual fate of all those on Game of Thrones.
