Slightly greater than per week earlier than Game of Thrones returns for its last season, star Kit Harington took the stage at Saturday Night Live, and it’s not precisely stunning that he couldn’t escape spoilers. What was stunning was that a lot of the spoiler-hounding didn’t come from the SNL studio viewers or forged, however from his personal co-stars.
The Game of Thrones-themed comedy began the second Harington walked out for his monologue, which started with an try to debate shifting on from the near-decade-long success of the present and get to the following part of his profession. That was interrupted by a “question” from a random viewers member, who Harington rapidly disposed of. Then issues took a really Game of Thrones twist when the following hand to go up was that of his co-star Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen). From there, the cameos simply saved coming, and if this sketch is to be believed it will appear Harington may need been the one particular person paying consideration whereas Game of Thrones Season Eight was taking pictures.
Game of Thrones is just too huge to comprise in only one section, although, and one other sketched aimed on the collection arrived simply minutes later. This time, as a substitute of the forged poking enjoyable at how a lot they’ve needed to dodge spoiling issues, it was SNL poking enjoyable at HBO’s must hold creating wealth from Game of Thrones by spinning the franchise off into different reveals.
We already find out about one prequel collection, however it seems HBO has a lot, far more in retailer for followers of the franchise. Are you prepared for a scorching romantic drama about Jon Snow’s secret love affair with a White Walker? What a few sitcom following Samwell Tarly and Gilly as they attempt to stay life as a household in King’s Landing? Or what about Paw Patrol-style animated collection starring the direwolves, or a Law & Order spinoff starring Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T as a pair of investigators attempting to unravel essentially the most wicked crimes in Westeros? Well, this section guarantees all of that and extra.
Look, SNL‘s level about HBO refusing to let Game of Thrones go by creating a number of spinoff reveals that may hold us in Westeros for years to come back is effectively taken. But be trustworthy: You’d completely watch Cersei and the City, proper?
Game of Thrones returns April 14. Hopefully a few of these spinoff concepts will make it into growth by the tip of Season 8.
