Who knew the Game of Thrones "Walk of Shame" scene could be this amusing? Together, their bodies make up the shape of a giant Iron Throne, a symbol of power and the ongoing supposed end goal of the titular "Game of Thrones".
"I assume you are here to bend the knee", the 51-year-old actress says, to which Harington dejectedly responds, "I am not". On the brink of tears, Williams asked Fallon if he could edit out her slip-up before realizing that his studio audience would "still tweet [about] it". "I told my mom, but the good thing about telling my mom these things is she's a vault because she's just done forgotten it-I told her". "I hope she'd say that, but they shepherded her and looked after her as much as they could".
Though it was clearly a prank, some fans remained convinced Williams had in fact revealed some juicy details about the closely guarded storyline of the HBO fantasy epic's final seasson-whether she meant to or not. Getting back to work as the Mother of Dragons was a real motivator for her.
At first she was having none of it, explaining to host Jimmy Fallon (would you believe): "I've made a decision to just keep a tight lip on everything". Her reaction? Uh. she forgot. The actress told Rolling Stone that she has a storyboard of Sansa's final scene hanging on one of her walls.
Game of Thrones will end after season eight, and it looks like the first episode will feature a rather shocking moment. "I couldn't quite handle [it]".
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 14. We've already seen several cast members touring the morning and late night shows, and we've read plenty of interviews with some of the main cast members and the showrunners.
