Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming on April 14 and as the trailer has given us a glimpse, I’ll tell you what’s actually coming: lots and lots of bloodsheds, multiple character deaths, and much more. Yet, since we’re only a month away from Game of Thrones Season 8, we’ve brought you great news especially if you’re a big fan of Kit Harington. The great news is that Kit is all scheduled to host an episode of Saturday Night Live in April this year.

Harington, according to the latest announcement by Saturday Night Live will be hosting this episode of the show on April 6th which is exactly eight days prior to the new season of Game of Thrones premiering on April 14. Moreover, apart from him, the Oscar nominee Emma Stone will also be getting the April 13th episode to host. This news was announced by Saturday Night Live via their Twitter handle recently.

This isn’t the first time a Game of Thrones cast member has been given an opportunity to host an episode of SNL. Only three months ago, Jason Momoa – whose character Khal Drogo has been long dead in Game of Thrones had hosted an episode premiered on December 8, 2018. His show was quite a gig with lots of callbacks from Game of Thrones – Joffrey, Lady Ollena, Brienne, and especially with him offering Viserys’ Golden Crown to the much-hated High Sparrow.

Talking about Game of Thrones, Jon Snow has already become a major rival of Khal Drogo by taking his place as the new love interest of Daenerys Targaryen. And, this time it’s on Saturday Night Live. We absolutely have no idea about how things will work on or get messed up when Jon and Dany find out about their aunt-nephew relationship, yet we can expect the April 6th episode of Saturday Night Live to be a gig too with Kit Harington hosting it.

We’ll sure be getting more updates on Kit’s episode of SNL – a teaser, promotional photo, or much more. And about Game of Thrones, just a month seems to be an eternal wait. But, all we can do is wait till the month for both these gigs.

Funko releases new Game of Thrones Season 8 Pop! figurines

Game of Thrones always had a way with merchandising, and while the show itself is over, but the merch lives on. One of the biggest names in the merch game is Funko, a company that makes the famous Pop! figurines and Game of Thrones has had a fair share of them. Now, we have what is possibly the last line for the show, as Funko has released Game of Thrones Season 8 Pop! figurines. Read on!

The designs were unveiled by Funko on their blog, and the lineup has two new designs, one is a Pop! Moment, which captures Daenerys and Jorah as he protected her in the Battle of Winterfell, before giving his own life for her. Take a look:

The second one is a Pop! figurine of Sansa Stark as Queen in the North, featuring her in her full Queen outfit, complete with the crown and everything. Check it out:

No other details are known at the moment, except that they’re coming soon. We are likely to see a possible presence of these at the San Diego Comic Con 2019, which is set to happen soon, with Game of Thrones scheduled for a panel. Prices are likely to compare to those of the regular offerings in the Pop! ranges.

What do you guys think? Planning on buying these? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Additional bonus content included in the collection will have deleted and extended scenes from various seasons, special featurette, behind-the-scenes footage, and animated histories and lore taking the story beyond the TV show into the epic fantasy fictional world of George R.R.
