Having teased the possibility for many a month now, Aaron Rodgers finally made his "Game of Thrones" debut on Sunday evening.

The Packers quarterback made a quick cameo during the 5th episode of the HBO phenomenon's final season, called "The Bells."

It was quite literally a blink-and-you-miss it appearance because, um, nobody really seems to be sure when and where he appears.

The early suggestions were that he had lined up as a member of the Lannister Army. 

The guy third from the right looks like Rodgers, sure, albeit without the beard. And let's face it, he WOULD be a Lannister.

But the picture Rodgers posted on Instagram on set showed him wearing a different costume, and still with his beard.

This in turn led to some suggesting – and Vikings fans hoping – that this was Rodgers. 

But then in a post-episode recap, Rodgers himself was interviewed, saying he was playing someone who helped an injured person to their feet, before ultimately dropping them and leaving them to die – so pretty much how he treated former Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

It's possible that he made more than one cameo appearance after all, given the sheer volume of extras required for Sunday's episode.

In any case, it must have been a nice change of pace for Rodgers to be surrounded by a competent supporting cast.
