The second-to-last episode of Game of Thrones is jam-packed with important moments: Varys's death, Daenerys's full descent into madness, Cleganebowl, and the Lannister twins' last reunion.

Rodgers has been an extremely vocal fan of the show as well, talking about it previously on shows like "The Dan Patrick Show".

But in either role, the 35-year-old's fate most likely remained the same as Daenerys and Drogon destroyed King's Landing, turning numerous soldiers and civilians in the city to ash with dragons breath.

Rodgers made a blink-and-you-may-have-missed-it appearance as one of the extras on the show.

The two-time MVP hinted at his role in late April via Twitter, giving fans fair warning to pay attention for episode five of the show's eighth and final season.


Rodgers joins several other famous folks who have snagged cameos including singers Chris Stapleton and Ed Sheeran and "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" actor Rob McElhenney.

We have since rounded up every major celebrity cameo in Game of Thrones so far, up until Season 8, episode 5: The Bells.

Just one episode remains in "Game of Thrones", HBO's wildly popular fantasy drama.
