*Warning: Potential spoilers ahead for Game of Thrones*
The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones aired on Sunday night, and, as tends to happen in the second to last episode of a season, a lot of people died!

The usual suspects played key roles in “The Last War,” but there was also a special cameo made by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The All-Pro is a huge fan of the show and became the latest sports figure to pop up as an extra on Thrones appearing on Sunday as an archer in the Golden Company on the side of Cersei Lannister, albeit briefly.

Given the events of the episode, Rodgers almost assuredly met a gruesome demise in King’s Landing because, well, yeah if you watched you know and, to be honest, if you didn’t and clicked on this post you’re probably pretty aware of what happened. Rodgers was very excited about his cameo appearance on the show, joining Noah Syndergaard as famous U.S. sports figures to appear in the show, although the Mets star at least got to be seen wrecking someone with a spear on screen.

Rodgers probably got a taste of dragon fire and that was that, but it’s not the first time he’s experienced an early exit in a big game loss.
