Former Game of Thrones star and everyone’s favourite Jason Momoa finally had a huge gig in the latest episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL). Momoa not only hosted the show live as he had teased in the episode’s promo but also revived his deceased character and deceased husband of the Dragon Queen – Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones. The December 8 episode of SNL had much more to see. We’ll discuss a few of them, especially as those star Jason.

Well, Jason created his own imagined version of the Night Lands – a place similar to heaven where the humans go once they are dead – a common Dothraki belief. He created the afterlife destination called Khal Drogo’s Ghost Dojo, where we met most of the deceased characters from the show like Joffrey Baratheon, Olenna Tyrell, and others.
The first guest of all was our favourite Hodor who still ‘hodors’ in the afterlife as well. Many conversations couldn’t happen between Drogo and Hodor obviously due to lack of communication.
Up next, was Pete Davidson who played the High Sparrow in Seasons 5 and 6 only to be wild-fired by Cersei Lannister. The High Sparrow and Drogo discussed lives while they still stayed in George RR Martin’s known world. Despite not being missed by the fans any more just like the Sand Snakes, Sparrow mocked Drogo saying, “And we both ended up in the same heaven…It almost makes you question religion!”
Upon learning that the fanatic had ruled out King Tommen and was indirectly ruling the realm, Drogo got up and offered him the Golden Crown that he had once offered to Viserys Targaryen.
The special and the funniest moment of the episode was perhaps, a conversation between Joffrey Baratheon, Olenna Tyrell, and Khal Drogo’s conversation where Joffrey proposed a duel between him and Drogo. This act ended with Joffrey learning that it was actually Olenna who had killed him. But, Olenna – like the sassy lady she was, threatened to kill him again by saying, “I’m about to kill you again, Justin Bieber!”
While the new season of Game of Thrones is about four months away – we are up for anything related to the show but yeah, a new teaser or official trailer is really worth looking forward to more.
