In fact, the "Shape of You" singer isn't even sure his character made it out of the season alive. After all, Dany's attack on Lannister forces on the Roseroad in "The Spoils of War," the season's fourth episode, left plenty of Cersei's men burned to a crisp courtesy of Drogon. "We were all quite young, those soldiers," Sheeran told MTV in a new interview. "I doubt I'm going to survive for that long, to be honest, when there are dragons in the world." (FWIW, that episode's director, Matt Shakman, told Mashable he didn't think "those soldiers were there."

Alive or not, Sheeran admitted that there are no plans for him or his vocal prowess to pop back up when the HBO hit returns for its final season (likely debuting in 2019 because the world is a dark and cruel place). "No one wants to see me come back," he said. "I wanted to be a cameo in it, and I've done the cameo. I'm cool with it, though. I enjoyed it."

Are you bummed that Sheeran won't be back or relieved that his tiny cameo was just that? Sound off in the comments below!

Game of Thrones' final season premiere date on HBO remains TBD.
