“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 that he’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 — set the whole thing up and then at the end goes ‘Oh yeah, I don’t want to be king. Oh, but why did I travel all this way to be here?’ No,” Rodgers said, clearly not buying Bran’s logic. “Look, I love the opportunity to be in the show, which most people probably don’t think I was, but I was there. I love the show, but the writers are also doing Star Wars, so I think they might have been a little busy.”
Rodgers isn’t alone in his disappointment. More than a million fans have signed a petition calling for the season to be re-written.
In addition, fans also had a difficult time spotting Rodgers in Episode 5, and several misidentified him as either one of the Lannister archers, or as a man running on fire amidst the take-down of King’s Landing.

“I wasn’t the guy that got burned up, and I’m disappointed in every person who would actually say that was me, ’cause if you watch that person run, they’re a total non-athlete,” he joked, when asked to clarify where he showed up in the penultimate episode.
“And I wasn’t the archer either, although that person definitely looked like me,” the football player added.
Instead, Rodgers said he was by the bell tower. “I was helping a woman who was injured, set her down, and then, the hell with her, I’m getting out of there,” he explained in a making-of featurette about his brief appearance on the show.
After Episode 5 aired, Rodgers shared a photo in costume from set to Instagram.
“It was just for a few seconds, but I’ll always be thankful to have been on the penultimate episode of @gameofthrones #crazyepisodetonight #🔥🔥🔥🔥” he captioned the photo.
