Ahead of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, delightful man Kit Harington hosted Saturday Night Live. In his opening monologue, the Jon Snow actor had the tough job of dodging GoT questions, a task made more difficult by the appearance of, oh, Emilia Clarke, John Bradley, his wife and former co-star Rose Leslie, and [checks notes], Pete Davidson as the Night King.
Clarke, Daenerys Targaryen, was the first to ask a string of questions about the final season. Even though she’s in the show, it’s just “been so damn long since the last season.”
“I have no idea what’s actually happening,” she added.
Bradley (Samwell Tarly) and Davidson’s Night King both asked Harington if they’ll still be mates after the show ends. And Leslie, the bloody legend, didn’t care about the final season. All she wanted to know is: “What are we going to do for money now?
“We didn’t save anything and you kept telling me, ‘Oh, I’m the King of the North, we can order UberEats every night.'”
Leslie also asked Harington if he was going to grow his Jon Snow beard back.

Entertainment Weekly‘s James Hibberd, who was at the premiere, described the first episode as “fantastic.”
