Kit Harington Is Clearly Avoiding All ‘Game Of Thrones’ Spoilers In His First ‘SNL’ Promo

April’s reign of Peak TV terror is finally upon us, and Saturday Night Live is at the forefront of its onslaught. Killing Eve star Sandra Oh hosted last weekend’s fantastic episode ahead of the second season premiere of her acclaimed BBC America series. This weekend, however, none other than Jon Snow himself — Kit Harington — will be guest hosting the program for the first time. His Game of Thrones character’s likeness has appeared on the variety sketch series before, but with Harington’s first SNL promo, we’re finally getting the real deal.

As with most guest host’s first SNL promos, Harington’s has very little to offer in terms of what he and the program’s writers and performers are currently preparing for this weekend’s episode. Then again, unlike Oh and Idris Elba before him, Harington seems to be a pretty serious guy.

“Hi, I’m Kit Harington and I’m hosting SNL this week,” he smiles in the teaser. “Make sure you watch.” To be frank, one can’t even justify adding an exclamation point to his delivery.

Then again, seeing as how the final season of Thrones is due to premiere its first television movie episode in less than two weeks, maybe this is just Harington’s (and SNL‘s) way of avoiding any and all possible spoilers. After all, we’re bound to at least get a few jokes — if not an entire sketch or two — about the fact that nobody at Studio 8H can say a thing about what’s coming to HBO on April 14th.
