Kit Harington Hosted Saturday Night Live and Got a Visit from Game of Thrones Co-Stars

The celebs of Game of Thrones have been so sworn to secrecy forward of the present’s eighth and ultimate season that their silence on spoilers is the story of their on-going promotional tour. The forged has been enjoying such a robust spherical of concept dodgeball the past few weeks that there is just about nothing else for them to talk about except the fact that they can not speak about anything. So what else was Kit Harington to do throughout his opening monologue for Saturday Night Live but to subject and bat down yet one more onslaught of spoiler requests?

The truth that the audience interrupted his chats about his lesser-known work in films like Silent Hill: Revelation and Pompeii to speak about Game of Thrones wasn’t shocking, however what was sudden was simply who popped up within the crowd. Emilia Clarke and John Bradley have been among those that got here along to prod Harington with some key questions concerning the finale, while real-life wife Rose Leslie questioned how they have been going to maintain dwelling their “Uber Eats every night” way of life after the show is completed.

“Could you just give us a general sense of how it ends?” Clarke says, after Harington turns down one other viewers member. He then reminds her that she, too, has been given the products on what happens in the ultimate season as a result of, you understand, she stars in it and all. “I know, but I forgot,” Clarke replies. “I mean, it’s been so damn long since the last season. Plus, a lot of my scenes are talking to a dragon, which is just a tennis ball on a green pole.”

In the meantime, Bradley contends that he does not know what becomes of Samwell Tarly since he solely received two pages of the script. “All my character says is ‘ahhh,'” he reveals, earlier than explaining that the road earlier than it featured a dragon opening its mouth. (Considering the Tarly family’s current history with dragons, that’s truly not exhausting to imagine.)

The last surprise of the phase is the arrival of the Night King, a la Pete Davidson coated in a vat of grey makeup. He is not here for spoilers a lot as a confidence increase. “Do people hate me?” he asks. “‘Cause it really feels like they hate me.”

SNL doubled down on its Game of Thrones play during Harington’s hosting stint with an prolonged sketch concerning the many, many prequel/sequel/spin-off ideas afloat proper now, providing a few good concepts of their own.

One such is Citadel Black, “a sexy moody drama about forbidden love” that includes Jon Snow’s torrid romance with a feminine wight — which makes a good point that it wouldn’t be that bizarre since he is also technically a zombie.

There’s also an animated collection referred to as Arya made within the fashion of Daria, as she adopts those misanthropic garbs and stabs soccer jock Kevin Thompson in the throat (who would not need to see Arya put some of these Lawndale High preppies in their place, truthfully?). Other highlights embrace No Ballers, starring Greyworm, Varys, and Theon and Game of Thrones: Particular Victims Unit, which brings Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T to Flea Backside to research a notably vicious homicide involving an eye-gouging, some “thing” removing, and a bit of necromancy for good measure.

SNL airs on Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c. Game of Thrones Season eight premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c.
