Aaron Rodgers explains 'Game of Thrones' cameo: 'I'll always be thankful'


The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, "The Bells", aired tonight on HBO, and it might have featured a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo appearance by National Football League superstar QB Aaron Rodgers.

Bears fans, you're going to want to see this.

According to two viewers, a scene with Arya matched the costume he was wearing on his Instagram post and Rodgers' description of his part.

Based on what happened throughout the episode, it seems fairly likely that Rodgers' character is no longer alive. Fans said he is standing in formation third from the right.

On Sunday, the fifth episode of the final season will be airing - and according to a tweet by Packers reporter Aaron Nagler, Rodgers will be making an appearance in the episode.

But others say they spotted the two-time NFL MVP while Daenerys Targaryen rides atop her last remaining dragon, Drogon, and burns the city and its people, including Rodgers.

The penultimate episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones" is generating quite a bit of controversy online.

Rodgers showed that he's more than just a talented signal caller, as he portrayed a Lannister soldier in one of the series' most momentous clashes.
