Ed Sheeran’s appearance on the first episode of the seventh season of Game of Thrones has fans divided between those who loved seeing the 26-year-old in Westeros and those that thought it was the worst thing to happen since the Red Wedding.

Sheeran featured in a sequence alongside Maisie Williams’ Arya, in which the latter rode horseback through a forest. The musician even got a chance to sing, during a scene that also featured another familiar face in the shape of This Is England’s Thomas Turgoose.

In lyrics taken from the George R.R. Martin book A Dance with Dragons, Sheeran crooned:

“He rode through the streets of the city / Down from his hill on high / O’er the winds and the steps and the cobbles / He rode to a woman’s sigh / For she was his secret treasure / She was his shame and his bliss / And a chain and a keep are nothing / Compared to a woman’s kiss / For hands of gold are always cold / But a woman’s hands are warm.”

Singing aside, Sheeran also ate a skewered squirrel and had a chat with Arya while Turgoose looked on, looking just as confused as the rest of us. It was all very odd.

 

So odd, in fact, it prompted a wide range of responses, from fans on social media.

Some were surprised …

Others excited … 

A lot of people kept making the same Ed Sheeran lyric jokes … 

Again …

And again …

All of which were hilarious …

Honest … 

A lot of people were pretty pissed off though, with the show’s writers coming in for some serious flack …

For some, it was the most disgusting thing to happen on GoT yet …

Others saw it as a shameless ploy to sell records …

It proved too much for a few though, who saw it as a distraction …

Then there were those who were simply worried about what it could mean for the future …

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

There was some hope for the rest of the series though …

The Hound can’t turn up soon enough! 

Of course, this is not the first time Sheeran has turned up in the world of television.

He previously had a part in the short-lived US series The Bastard Executioner, where his character also sang. That show was cancelled after just 10 episodes. Maybe Ed should have taken the hint.
