Spoilers for those not caught up on Game of Thrones
Leslie Jones provides funny comedy commentary for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. Season 7 of Game of Thrones is more than halfway over as of last Sunday, with four out of a total of seven episodes already aired. And the most recent episode, titled ‘The Spoils of War‘, has many fans calling it one of the best – if not the absolute best – episode thus far. Multiple reunions and a glorious battle had people glued to their TV sets and have already been re-watched by many of the show’s most enthusiastic fans.
Among those enthusiastic lovers of Game of Thrones are former Saturday Night Live writers and cast members Seth Meyers and Leslie Jones. Meyers has done a few sketches on Late Night With Seth Meyers where GOT characters show up at normal social gatherings like dinner parties and baby showers only to kill the mood with their sad lives and depressing personalities. And Jones live-tweets Game of Thrones every week, offering levity and hilarity in the face of often dark and depressing storylines, as well as some clever insights to the characters.

Last year, the SNL vets filmed themselves watching ‘The Battle of the Bastards’ with Jones providing her funny commentary out loud and aired it on Late Night With Seth Meyers under the title ‘Game of Jones’. Now they have done it again, with ‘The Spoils of War’ – and they were joined part of the way through the sketch by a very special guest.
The video – seen above – begins with Seth explaining that Jones was too sick to tweet during the episode, and that this will be his first time watching it. Then they get down to business, wherein Jones lectures Meyers on how to watch the credits properly. Jones is quick as always, calling Bronn a gangster and saying she wants a castle in Compton. She explains that she would never trust Littlefinger, but she also might not turn down a romance with him. She also accuses Bran of being on drugs, a joke that continues throughout the sketch.
Jones’ fandom really comes through when she recognizes Arya from behind, while Seth cannot identify the character until her face is shown. But the comedy comes back swiftly when Jones compares the reunion of the three living Stark children to one with food and a DJ.
Meyers cleverly gets Jones talking about the character of Lord Varys after she mentioned his coat, and while Jones is explaining how untrustworthy he is, the man himself walks in – Varus portrayer Conleth Hill. Jones hugs Hill, screaming, and he sits to watch the episode with them, with Jones calling him by his character’s name throughout. The two of them argue about Theon – who Jones insists on calling The-ron. Hill takes the character’s side, claiming that eunuchs have to stick together.
Then it is time for The Loot Crate Attack, and while Jones keeps her commentary going throughout, the three of them are riveted. Most of the video shows Meyers literally rolling with laughter on the couch. But during the battle, he never takes his eyes off the screen, even when Jones does her best dragon imitations. Jones literally bounces on her seat as she narrates. And even Hill – who presumably read the script for the episode as well as the following three – is on the edge of his seat.
With only nine total episodes remaining of the show’s final two seasons, hopefully Meyers and Jones will reunite for another couple of episodes of ‘Game of Jones’ before things in the Seven Kingdoms settle down for good.
Game of Thrones continues on HBO Sunday August 13 with ‘Eastwatch’.
