Did you really think the “SNL” writers wouldn’t find a way to get Jason Momoa back into his Khal Drogo costume when he hosted Saturday? Well, ye of little faith, feast your eyes on the fruits of their “Game of Thrones” parody labors in “Khal Drogo’s Ghost Dojo.”
The “SNL” sketch shows Momoa back in action as the deceased Dothraki leader, and is now hosting a talk show for all the HBO series’ dead characters, including Hodor (Beck Bennett), the High Sparrow (Pete Davidson), King Joffrey (Kate McKinnon), Lady Olenna (Aidy Bryant) and Oberyn Martell.
The living Brienne of Tarth (Heidi Gardner) pops into the dojo too — much to the confusion of the Khal’s blood writer (Kenan Thompson). She calls out Drogo for labeling her a “man,” which leads to this very clear Kevin Hart joke from Momoa: “You’re right. Khal needs to learn from Khal’s mistake or Khal never win Oscar, never host Oscars.”
The dojo’s drama comes to a head when foes Joffrey and Olenna begin to squabble on stage.
“Khal Drogo’s Ghost Dojo” is brought to you by Little Beard Twisties, the Red Wedding venue, and it even has an aftershow.
Watch the sketch above.

Review the baddies who went down in flames and the heroes who died epically this year
Television characters are a dime a dozen, but sometimes when we lose one it can pack a pretty hefty punch. Especially if they go out in a totally epic way. In 2017, we watched more than a few good men and women kick the bucket on TV (though a couple we were honestly glad to be rid of). Here are the ones who went out as total badasses — or maybe were killed by a total badass. Beware of spoilers!
