Noah Syndergaard hasn’t pitched since April 30 thanks to a lat injury, but New York Mets fans just dying to see their massive ace throw again got themselves a taste in last night’s episode of Game of Thrones.

Spoiler Warning: If you have yet to watch the fourth episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones, “The Spoils of War,” I suggest you make like Theon Greyjoy and turn and flee.

Syndergaard teased his cameo on the epic HBO series months ago. It came on Sunday night, and it made too much sense.

The 6’6″, 240-pound starter appeared as a member of the Lannister army—and with his flowing blond locks, he might as well be a Lannister for all we know—during Daenerys’ intense raid on the Lannister supply chain.

He also utilized his insanely strong, accurate arm to take out a member of the Dothraki hoard—though the man they call Thor due to his resemblance to the Norse god and Marvel Comics character was not wielding Mjölnir, the hammer with which Thor is associated.

Instead, Syndergaard hucked a spear straight through a Dothraki horse to send the warrior flying.

Here’s the throw again, in slow motion.

“It’s a dream come true,” Syndergaard told Sports Illustrated back in April of his turn as a Lannister soldier. “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.”

After the episode aired, Syndergaard put an exclamation point on his kill.

Then he had to defend himself for associating with a bunch of rich, entitled pricks.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers were putting an 8-0 hurting on the Mets to cap off a season series sweep. So Thor can be forgiven for changing the channel.

Though his team on HBO lost too.
