Ed sang a "new" song, "Hands of Gold", which has significant meaning within the A Song of Ice and Fire universe.

Fans responded to Sheeran's takeoff from Twitter generally with bitterness, with the incidental depreciator sharing a scornful GoT-referencing comment.

The 26-year-old popped up in Lannister garb chilling with some fellow soldiers as Arya Stark (Ed's real-life pal Maisie Williams) rode through the Riverlands on her way to King's Landing. Then again, Preacher has been known to mix and match characters from several story arcs in the comics for the TV series, so it's not entirely unlikely, but it doesn't seem to be a common occurrence in Game of Thrones. Chart-topping musician Ed Sheeran is to play Lisa's love interest in an upcoming episode of "The Simpsons".

Sheeran's Twitter shutdown comes just weeks after he confirmed that he was no longer "reading anything" on social media. "Taken purely on sight, Sheeran's much-heralded Game of Thrones appearance was a dud", The Guardian opined.

Producer Mike Scully had heard "Shape of You" hitmaker was a Simpsons fan and also had a tattoo of Blinky the three-eyed fish, was game in appearing on the show.

The portal suffered similar problems at the time of the fourth season premiere of Game of Thrones in 2014, when the site crashed during the finale of the first season of True Detective. "I go on it and there's nothing but people saying mean things", he said. After she stops to compliment Sheeran's song ("It's a new one", he tells her), he and his fellow Lannister bannermen invite Arya to have dinner with them, during which they open up about the pains of war and missing their families.

"Best surprise ever!" one follower commented. While he had quite a few fans excited to see him on the show, there was also a pretty vocal crowd that wasn't as keen on seeing him in Westeros.

Meanwhile, Sheeran's Instagram account continues to be active; in fact, just hours ago he posted a photo of himself "climbing mountains in Peru".
