Eddie was, however, nowhere to be seen or talked about in the series till the eighth season premiere — where one of the prostitutes says she had heard the character's face was "burned right off" and had no eyelids after he was subjected to one of Daenerys Targeryen's three dragons' fire.

Sheeran took to social media over the weekend to thank the show's screenwriters.
