‘Game of Thrones’ Surprise: Yes, Mets Pitcher Noah Syndergaard Threw Spear for Lannister Army

Sunday’s episode saw a devastating battle between two enemies

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven’t seen Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones.”)

After Ed Sheeran appeared on a “Game of Thrones” episode last month, Sunday’s episode saw another famous cameo — Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard.

The ballplayer was part of the Lannister army in the surprise battle against Daenerys Targaryen — and her dragon. Hidden behind Lannister shields, Syndergaard threw a spear at the Dothraki warriors and took down a horse.

“Take that you mean Dothraki,” Syndergaard tweeted after the episode, which he followed up with another tweet in which he wrote, “To my sides defense… they had a FRICKEN DRAGON!!! At least I didn’t throw behind him.”

Sunday’s episode saw the Mother of Dragons finally taking the Lannisters to battle after she realized she was losing the war due to her allies disappearing one by one. The Dothraki army took down a majority of the Lannister army, and even Jaime Lannister might have fallen victim to the dragon — although the episode ended with a cliffhanger as to whether the attack was fatal.

Syndergaard’s cameo was revealed in March by the New York Post. The pitcher told Sports Illustrated at the time, “I think it’s the greatest TV show of all time, so just to be able to say I was in ‘Game of Thrones’ is an unbelievable feeling.”
