“I’m the King of the North! We can order Uber Eats every night!”
Kit Harington, Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, was the host of Saturday Night Live tonight and his opening monologue included some familiar faces asking for answers about the final season of HBO’s hit series.
Harington took the stage, without a beard, and began taking questions from the audience following him mentioning his other acting credits, which include Pompeii and Silent Hill: Revelation.
First up was none other than Emilia Clarke, Daenerys Targaryen herself, asking “Could you just give us a general sense of how it ends?” After Harington reminded her she was in the show, Clarke confessed that it’s been so long since the last season and that she really only talks to a dragon, which is actually only a tennis ball on a green pole, so she has no idea what’s going on.
Oh, and she of course brought up the fact that they had sex in the show, and she asked Harington if he knew that it was being filmed!
After some confused Harry Potter fans left, John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly on Game of Thrones, asked if Harington knew what happened to his character because they “only let [him] see two pages of the script.”
He also was curious if him and Harington would stay friends now that Game of Thrones was ending, and when Harington said he was busy, John said, “You’ve changed.”
Next up was the Night King, and all he wanted to know was if everyone hates him.
When Harington said of course because he is…the Night King…the Night King asked if they’d be friends after Game of Thrones. When Harington said they were never friends, he echoed John’s thoughts and said “You have changed!”
Last up was one of Jon Snow’s loves and Kit Harrington’s real world wife, Rose Leslie. The actress who played Ygritte in Game of Thrones wanted to know how they were going to make money now that the show was ending.
She was curious, because they haven’t saved any money and all Harington would say was that “I’m the King of the North! We can order Uber Eats every night!”
The end of the monologue wasn’t the end of the Game of Thrones references, however, as SNL took it upon themselves to announce more spin-off/crossover GoT series, with titles such as Cersei and the City, Hodor’s House, and Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit.
Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season will air its first episode on April 14, and leading up to it you can find out everything we know about the upcoming season in one place and check out our new retrospective series, “When I Died on Game of Thrones.”
