Shall we begin ... by asking how you felt about that big "Game of Thrones" cameo?

Spoilers ahead from the Season 7 premiere, "Dragonstone."

Most fans knew Ed Sheeran would have a Season 7 cameo, but we didn't know it would be in the premiere, and we didn't know it would so obviously be Ed Sheeran. It was hardly subtle, unlike some of the past celebrity/musician appearances on the show. Sheeran even got to take on a bit of a role from one of the books, Symon Silver Tongue, whose song "Hands of Gold" was taken from George R.R. Martin's book, as originally written as a jab at Tyrion Lannister.

The GoT showrunners cast Sheeran as a surprise for fan Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and Arya shares the scene with Sheeran's singer, who is also a Lannister soldier.Fans gave Sheeran's cameo mixed reviews -- and so many jokes based off his song lyrics. The pop star's loyal fans were thrilled, but it would be reaching to say the GoT fandom was fully supportive. Many will only be happy if Winter comes for House Sheeran.

Here's what fans were thinking out loud:


If it's just a cameo, that should be it. No chance to murder him. No more songs. Instead, "Game of Thrones" Season 7 will chug along with out him, continuing Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
