Game of Thrones star Kit Harington ruthlessly heckled during SNL gig

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington ruthlessly heckled during SNL gig

Kit Harington make his Saturday Night Live hosting debut over the weekend, showing off his newly shaved face while taking questions from the audience, which happened to contain a few of his Game of Thrones co-stars. Everyone, including Emilia Clarke, Rose Leslie, and John Bradley, asked who wins the Game of Thrones (which in of itself is not the right way to ask that question).

Clarke stood up in the audience and asked if he could at least share "a sense of how it ends".

Perhaps the best moment in the piece came when Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T showed up in a crossover titled Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit.

Before she let him get back to it, she asked if he remembered when they had sex in Season 6. A lot of times these deaths are utterly tragic, and on occasion, the show throws us a bone and gives us something oh-so-satisfying, like Joffrey choking at his own wedding or Ramsay being fed to the hounds.

Everything goes wrong for the Prime Minister in the TV sketch, with children giving her the thumbs down as they pass her in the street. When Harington pointed out that she already knows because she's in the show, she replied, "Well yeah but I forgot". Don't miss Hargitay spot-on making a Hollywood Squares reference.

After waiting with bated breaths for more than 500 days, Game of Thrones fans will finally unravel season 8, which premieres from April 14, 2019.

There was also "Arya", an animated series modeled after MTV's "Daria" that stars Arya Stark; and Samwell Tarly and Gilly in the sitcom "The Queen of King's Landing"; "Cersei in the City"; "No Ballers", starring Varys, Grey Worm and Theon Greyjoy; "The Marvelous Mrs. Melisandre"; and "Wildling Out".
