A couple of years ago, Seth Meyers debuted a segment on Late Night with Seth Meyers in which he held a viewing part of Game of Thrones for just himself and SNL cast member Leslie Jones. The results were hilarious given both personalities’ love of the HBO series, but more importantly Jones’ eagerness to yell at the screen and spout half-correct observations about what was happening onscreen. The two revisited this scenario for the show’s seventh season (with a special cameo), and now they’ve returned for one final go-around as Meyers and Jones got together to watch the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere.
The result is, unsurprisingly, hilarious. Jones has plenty of thoughts about the premiere episode and goes to great lengths to explain how Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are related, getting pretty much every detail wrong. The two also take a break to get “elevated”, and when they return the vibe involves much more giggling.
