Dave Chappelle, back from a commercial break, returned to the Saturday Night Live stage to address the audience and ask if they were watching House of the Dragon before introducing a spoof sneak peek of the HBO series.
“I am the greatest” Game of Thrones fan, I love the new show,” he said. “And I have to tell you, I love that they have black characters in them, but to be honest, the black characters – they kind of take me with the old accents, it’s a bit shocking like where are these people from. “
Chappelle goes on to say that Lorne Michaels got an exclusive sneak peek of season 2 of the show and introduced a previously recorded sketch.
Chloe Fineman played Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Michael Longfellow played Prince Daemon Targaryen. Kenan Thompson was introduced as Lord Corlys Velaryon, the sea serpent, and when asked where he was from, he jokingly said, “The Matrix.”
When Daemon assumes that Corlys has been at sea for a long time, he says, “Of course my people feel most comfortable here: the ocean. We especially like being on ships, don’t worry about ships or anything. can happen to us on ships.”
King Viserys Targaryen, played by James Austin Johnson, then appears and says his leprosy infection was “nothing, just a little coughing, my skin melted and my eye fell.”
Lord Corlys Velaryon then introduces “new allies” with Chappelle playing one of the characters and quickly seeing the condition of King Viserys. He then sees his cousin, who is played by Ice-T, who has a guest spot. Chappelle’s character tells Ice-T’s that he looks like ET when they dressed him up for Halloween.
More “allies” began to appear with Chappelle showing off his range and playing the various characters that showed up.
