Aaron Rodgers loved being in Game of Thrones, didn’t like the ending

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers briefly appeared in a scene during the final season of Game of Thrones. He enjoyed the experience of being in the last season of the show more than he enjoyed the experience of watching the last season of the show.

Rodgers confirmed that he had a very brief moment on the screen but said the viral videos that suggested he was either a character who got burned or a character shooting an arrow were incorrect.

“I wasn’t the guy that got burned up and I’m disappointed in every person who would say that was me, because if you watch that person run, he was a total non-athlete. And I wasn’t the archer either,” Rodgers said.

Like many fans, Rodgers was not satisfied with the ending, which saw (spoilers ahead) Bran Stark, also known as the Three-Eyed Raven, become the king. Rodgers felt that several other characters were more deserving of sitting on the throne.

“I loved the show,” Rodgers said. “It was a great 10 years, but no. You come down to the end and Tyrion says the person with the best story is Bran? Who by the way three episodes ago said he wasn’t Bran Stark anymore? Jon had a better story. Dany had a better story. Arya had a better story. Sansa had a better story. Tyrion had a better story. Varys had a better story. Bronn, lot better story. Jamie better story. Cersei, probably better stories. Any Baratheon probably better story.”

Rodgers wanted Daenerys Targaryen to assume her rightful place on the Iron Throne and felt that Bran’s actions didn’t make sense within the context of the show, in which Bran can see visions of both the past and the future and therefore may have known all along that the throne was his destiny. It was Bran who told his sisters, Sansa and Arya, that Jon Snow was not actually their half-brother but instead a Targaryen who had a stronger claim to the throne than Daenerys. Rodgers felt the resolution to that storyline was poorly written.

“I think Dany should have been on the throne,” Rodgers said. “Here’s my thing, though. Here’s my last theory about it. If Bran — the Three-Eyed Raven who’s all about the health of the realm — let’s think about what he did. He basically wanted the throne the whole time, because he’s the one who told the Starks, knowing that Sansa would tell Tyrion, knowing that Tyrion would talk to Varys, knowing they’d scheme for Dany’s death, knowing that would piss her off which led her to be the mad queen, so he the entire time kind of set this whole thing up? And then at the end he says, ‘I don’t want to be the king.’ Oh, but why did I travel all this way to be here? No. Look, I loved the opportunity to be in the show, which most people don’t think I was. I loved the show, but the writers are also doing Star Wars. So I think they might have been a little busy this last season.”

Perhaps Rodgers, instead of making a cameo appearance, should have been in the writers’ room.

  1. Rodgers confirmed that he had a very brief moment on the screen but said the viral videos that suggested he was either a character who got burned or a character shooting an arrow were incorrect.
    _____
    He was a character who had his dirty laundry exposed by his fellow characters.

  2. They spent 7 years building up Jon Snow into a righteous hero and the last year he’s been a whiny pile of goo who can’t even get a pardon from his own brother or sister. Good job GOT.

  3. Rodgers seems to miss that a major part of Tyrion saying Bran has the best story is because he is their memory, the keeper of everyone’s story. You wouldn’t know if the Three Eyed Raven was a worthless being.

  4. Loved the show. Did it end the way I wanted it to? Definitely not. But I’ll be grateful they didn’t go the Sopranos route.

  5. I agree with everything Aaron Rodgers said. I’m gon’ be sick.

  6. Great art isnt about the ending. It’s about the journey there. Only fans of Twin Peaks grasp that concept. That’s why Peaks and it’s fans are the GOATS.

    Watching people ADORE a show for 8 years only to hate it now because of the last episode is HILARIOUS. And pathetic. About as pathetic as the people petitioning.

  7. Always a critique huh Erin. Critique of McCarthy and now your new HC. The more things change the more they remain the same.

  8. I thought Tyrion was going to say, after the decision on Jon Snow should be left to the new rightful king, that Jon Snow was the rightful king, and drop the mic. At least he should have.

  9. I interpreted Rodgers as saying that he thought his character should have survived the destruction of the city, made love to Daenerys and become the King of the Seven Kingdoms.

    ================

    It’s a very popular series of books. Missing those from your house as well?

  12. Tywin Lannister disagrees. Watch his conversation with Tommen again.

    As for Rogers, the last time he won a Super Bowl was before The Dance of Dragons book was released.

  13. Did you see little guy wearing purple and a helmet with tiny horns on it? He was a troll. He chased Rodgers everywhere he went on the set. He kept repeating; ‘But, but, but…….you said, you said!”

  14. Bran can not see the future nor change any future event…..he can see the past and see any moment in the present around the world…..

  15. Anyone watching the show should have known Dany was not going to be on that throne as her temper and ambition became her downfall. The dragon was right to destroy the throne none of them deserved except Jon, but you can’t sit on the throne after killing the Queen you pledged your life too. Rodgers Logic misses the whole point of Bran wanting the throne since the original Three-Eyed-Raven who lived with the last of the tree children was directing Bran for most of the show and was the one who helped him see that vision before he died if I remember right.

  16. Georgeremus, dont give me that crap when the whole reason people justified Bran not doing a damn thing during episode 3 in the battle vs the dead was that “he knew everything that was going to happen and that the Night King would die”
