Former CIA deputy director David S. Cohen makes a special appearance in 'Game of Thrones' in the second episode of the final season
Among all the Easter eggs and juicy developments you might have missed on the highly anticipated second episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8, there's one that you definitely wouldn't have expected — a surprise cameo by David S. Cohen, the former Deputy Director of the CIA under President Obama.
It was not until the Twitter handle of the CIA revealed the fact that fans spotted the former Deputy Director dressed as a citizen of Winterfell, in Sunday's episode titled 'A Knight Of the Seven Kingdoms', wearing layers of wool and rag clothes while carrying a bowl of soup.

"A perk of working for CIA is world travel. Apparently that sometimes extends to other realms…," the CIA tweet teased along with a still of the cameo.
"'Little birds', be on the lookout for a former deputy director of ours wandering through #Westeros in tonight's episode of #GameOfThrones," the tweet added.
After the CIA's Twitter revealed the news, Cohen retweeted the update and joked; "Way to blow my cover!"
Cohen, who is now an attorney, had earlier hinted at the cameo when a journalist named Alex Thomas tweeted, "Former deputy director of the CIA, David Cohen, to appear in the second episode of Game of Thrones (no, I'm not kidding)."
Cohen replied: "You seem to have good sources in Winterfell."
In a second tweet, the former under-secretary of Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence added; "As Arya might say, 'A man has no name.'"
The finale for 'Game of Thrones' season 8 drops on April 28.
