Watch Leslie Jones Recreate Her Favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ Scenes with Some Help from a Grouchy Kit Harington

Fact: There is no bigger Game of Thrones fan than Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones. (Sorry, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, we don’t make the rules.) So when she learned Jon Snow, er, Kit Harington is guest starring on SNL this weekend, she saw her chance and took it.

Just like any Thronie worth their salt, the 51-year-old comedian opted to recreate her favorite scenes from the hit HBO series with some expert crafting skills and a little help from a grouchy Harington. Lucky for us, she shared the whole thing on Instagram.

She holds the door like Hodor (Kristian Nairn) and she wars against the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and his trolls wights beyond the wall. She flies a mile in Viserion’s wings and obliterates the wall with his fire/ice breath. Oh, and she builds her very own throne and tells Harington, 32, to bend the knee à la Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Just like in the show, he refuses, but his reasons this time around are a little different.

Instead of claiming he’s King in the North and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, IRL Jon Snow asks why Jones basically kidnapped him for four hours and made him reenact the show with oven mitts gloves. Rightfully, he asks if this is all part of a Saturday Night Live skit and she informs him she’s just carrying out her long held “fantasy” of living in Westeros.

Hey, we know all work and no play makes Jon Snow a dull boy, but come on Kit. Take one for the team, and by that we mean give Leslie what she wants and bend the knee. Geez.
