- There were several references to Ed Sheeran's songs
- 'Audibly groaned when Ed Sheeran came on screen,' read a tweet
- 'The cameo has everyone playing wordplay on his songs,' read another one
Meanwhile, this is what Twitter has to say. "Audibly groaned when Ed Sheeran came on screen in Game Of Thrones because it was entirely unnecessary and not subtle in the slightest," read a tweet while: "Ed Sheeran's cameo on Game Of Thrones has everyone playing wordplay on his songs," pointed out another.
There were several references to Ed Sheeran's songs, for example, Twitter thought that the lyrics of Thinking Out Loud fits perfectly as the introductory lines for a supposed meeting between him and Brandon Stark (Arya's crippled brother) - "When your legs don't work like they used to before." There's also a fictional sample conversation that might have happened between Arya and Ed Sheeran's character.

Ed Sheeran: It's on Spotify.#gameofthrones
Meanwhile, a section of Twitter thought Arya ruined the possibility of a probable love story with her sudden declaration and explained it with lyrics from Ed Sheeran's songs:
However, some appeared really happy to have chanced upon the singer in Game Of Thrones.
