Last year Seth Meyers and Leslie Jones watched an episode of Game of Thrones, which showed us the pure joy of watching the show with Jones as she live-tweets it. They finally got together again to watch The Spoils of War,” but this time theyre joined by someone who knows a thing or two about whats going on in Westeros.
Neither of them had seen the episode, so they settled in with plenty of snacks and witty commentary. (Apparently, Jones has seen a lot of people with Brans vacant stare.) Jones has thoughts on just about every character and loved that Stark reunion as much as you did, and shes even able to contextualize Westeros major players in a modern-day setting. Varys, for instance, is like the girlfriend that you dont know if she really your homegirl or not.
But Meyers had a reason to ask Jones about Varys. Shortly after she stopped talking about Varys, he surprised her with Varys himself (Conleth Hill dressed as his Game of Thrones character) to watch the rest of the episode with them. And just because shes watching an episode of Game of Thrones with one of the actors doesnt mean shell hold back. Varys doesnt reveal all, of course, but he can explain himself without the threat of being burned alive. He also sticks up for his fellow Eunuch Theon Greyjoy.
If Varys makes it to season 8, we hope they return to watch another episode together. Theyve got a lot to work out.
