‘SNL’: Jason Momoa resurrects his ‘Game of Thrones’ character, Khal Drogo

Khal Drogo is back from the dead. Well, at least he was on “Saturday Night Live.”

Saturday night’s host, Jason Momoa, resurrected his popular “Game of Thrones” character during a skit called “Khal Drogo’s Ghost Dojo” on the aptly named Dothraki Public Access, where he and one of his bloodriders (Kenan Thompson) chat with other characters who have been killed off in the popular HBO show.

Hodor (Beck Bennett) is the first guest ghost of the night, but his visit is short because, like on the show, his vocabulary is pretty limited to “Hodor” or “hold the door.”

The High Sparrow (Pete Davidson) is up next, and he’s just glad that he made it to heaven.

“So glad I gave up sex for 50 years,” the High Sparrow says.

Khal Drogo is the in the same place, but he says his experience is a little different: “I sex when I want, whenever I want. Many, many partners.”

“And we both ended up in the same heaven,” the High Sparrow responds. “Cool. Almost makes you question religion.”

Although she’s not dead, Brienne of Tarth (Heidi Gardner) also makes an appearance in the Ghost Dojo to skewer comedian Kevin Hart, who stepped down as Oscars host after past homophobic tweets resurfaced.

“If this man wants to fight, I’ll give him what he wants,” Momoa’s Khal Drogo says about Brienne, a woman.

“Man? Wow, you have a lot to learn about identity politics,” Gardner’s Brienne replies.

“You’re right, Khal needs to learn from Khal mistakes or I’ll never win Oscar – I’ll never host Oscar,” Drogo says.

Thompson emphasizes the exchange, commenting: “Wow, what a teachable moment.”
