Jason Momoa Returns For Special Appearance As Khal Drogo

Jason Momoa Returns For Special Appearance As Khal Drogo

The eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones will premiere in April 2019. That's only four months away (where did this go?!) but if you've been jonesing for a GOT fix, you could do a lot worse than watching this:

Yes, on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live - the legendary programme aired a skit called Khal Drogo's Ghost Dojo, a fictional public access channel featuring - you guessed it - Game Of Throne's very own Khal Drogo alongside SNL's Kenan Thompson.

For the made up Dothraki Public Access TV channel, the pair played a game where they interviewed dead Game Of Thrones characters - and as you know, there are a lot of them, given that the show really loves killing them off, often when you least expect it.

And while Jason Momoa was the only actual Game Of Thrones actor to appear on the sketch, the SNL cast did an amazing job impersonating other characters from the show, all of whom have shuffled off this mortal coil - though slightly more violently than that phrase might suggest.

Those brought back from the dead included Hodor, who was played by Beck Bennet, the High Sparrow, who was played by Pete Davidson and King Joffrey, who was imitated by the ever-brilliant and hilarious Kate McKinnon. Aidy Bryant also took on the role of Oleanna Tyrell and Brienne of Tarth was resurrected by Heidi Gardner.

Poor old Hodor was the first guest, but due to his restrictive speech limitations of only being able to say his own name, he was left having to hold the door (get it?) for the next guest.

We don't want to give too much away because it's really much funnier watching it than reading about it, but all the guests did a great job of impersonating their characters and reminding us who had met their untimely demise, because it's kind of hard to keep track when everyone's dropping like flies.

In fact, Thompson refused to believe that Brienne of Tarth was dead, insisting that that show had been on too long for anyone to remember. Which is kind of true.

There were even some fake commercials, including an ad for the infamous Red Wedding - in which all the blood had conveniently been cleaned up.

All in all, it served as a perfect teaser for the new season, albeit with a few more laughs than the actual show itself.

We can't bloody wait.
