Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington was tight-lipped about Season 8 spoilers as he delivered his SNL monologue on Saturday. Before fielding questions from the audience, Harington clarified that he wouldn’t be revealing how the show ends. Unfortunately, the audience was stacked against him and sprinkled with many of his celebrity cast mates.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, got the ball rolling by asking if he could give a general sense of how it ends. Apparently, given the long wait between seasons and the fact that most of her scenes are with a dragon (played by a tennis ball on a green pole), she was a little foggy on specifics.
John Bradley who plays Samwell Tarly of the Night’s Watch also had some questions about his character’s fate. Pete Davidson, done up as the Night King, wanted to know if people “liked him.” For this one, Harrington was happy to answer; “Yeah, you’re the Night King, everyone you touch turns into an ice zombie.”
Harington’s wife Rose Leslie, who he met on set, had more domestic questions in mind. She also invited the question on many fans’ mind: “How soon can you grow back that beard?”
