Sheeran appeared early on in the episode as a Lannister soldier hanging out with his comrades, singing (natch) and cooking a rabbit on a spit when Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) comes along.
"It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before?"
Fans can also look forward to a love triangle with Nelson, who sings a rendition of Save the Last Dance to impress Lisa. For example, Forbes called Sheeran's cameo a "mistake".
Fans speculate that Sheeran, who said in previous media interviews that he was "freaking out" to be in GOT, was overwhelmed by the mixed positive and negative reactions on his cameo role as a singing soldier.
"We had a ideal part for him.so we said, 'Oh, great, we'll have him do this!' And we recorded him over the phone from England".
Another added: 'If Arya doesn't burn Ed Sheeran he'll come back as a white walker and be playing Westeros Glastonbury for thousands of years'. Al said that they had a flawless role for him.
"I go on it and there's nothing but people saying mean things", he reportedly told The Sun.
