Did You Blink and Miss Rob McElhenney and Martin Starr on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Premiere?

Did You Blink and Miss Rob McElhenney and Martin Starr on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Premiere?(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” Season 8 premiere, “Winterfell”)

You might have been a little too busy crying tears of (Grey)joy when Theon finally rescued his sister Yara from his uncle’s boat on the Season 8 premiere of “Game of Thrones” to notice two faces unfamiliar to Westeros in the background: Rob McElhenney and Martin Starr.

Yes, the first big cameos on the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” involved the creator-star of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and the “Silicon Valley” actor. And then they quickly died.

In their brief stint on D.B. Weiss and David Benioff’s HBO fantasy series, McElhenney and Starr play two of Euron’s men who are killed by Theon and his crew when they come to save Yara.

McElhenney, quite proud of how he was taken out, confirmed his cameo via Instagram, posting a picture an arrow going through his character’s eye with the caption, “Don’t blink.”

McElhenney and Starr may have been the first big names to pop up with cameos this season, but we’re sure they won’t be the last, as Weiss and Benioff like to sneak in Easter eggs for fans.

Never forget: Ed Sheeran.

“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
