In the season 8 premiere, three women appear to discuss the fate of Lannister soldier "Eddie", whose face was apparently burned off and no longer has eyelids.

"Thanks @GameOfThrones, I knew I was a survivor," he reportedly wrote (via The Sun) in his Instagram Stories.

Well, if we do see him again, we suppose he won't have any eyelids.

As well as the (apparent) fate of Sheeran's character, the first episode of season 8 also saw Jon Snow's true parentage finally revealed to him by Samwell Tarly.

However, actor John Bradley has teased that Sam may have a 'manipulative' reason for revealing the news to the King in the North, especially given that he had just found out Daenerys Targaryen had executed his father and brother.

"He’s as much a schemer and a manipulator as anybody else. He’s got his own and Gilly’s and Baby Sam’s interests at heart, more than anything else."
