Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo during the first season of "Game of Thrones," made a surprise appearance during the show's panel at Comic-Con on Friday.
Rushing the stage, Momoa shouted, "I'm not dead!" before kissing his on-screen wife Emilia Clarke. Just as abrupt as he appeared, Momoa quickly ran off the stage.
Clarke, who appeared genuinely surprised by Momoa's smooch, was momentarily speechless before reciting one of Daenerys's lines, "My son and stars."
See Momoa's brief cameo at the "Game of Thrones" panel at the 14:43 mark:
- The panel opened with a creative "In Memoriam" video montage (set to Boyz II Men's "It's So Hard to Say Good-Bye") recalling the death of literally every character on the show.
- When asked if he'd consider writing a "Game of Thrones" prequel, author George R.R. Martin told the audience that he is open to writing more novels set in the world of Westeros after he completes the main series, but it wouldn't write about any characters from the current books or TV show. "I don't think it would be a prequel. I might go further back. There's lots of material. I just don't think I'll do the immediate precursor," Martin said.
- A never-seen-before deleted scene was featured with Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) and Grand Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover). The clip opens with Tywin enjoying his "time of leisure" fishing. Pycelle asks Tywin if he could be returned to the small council, and all signs of Pycelle's frailty disappears as he stands up straight and speaks in a full-throated voice. Despite Pycelle's transformation, Tywin sends the old man, who is once again stooped over and stuttering, home with instructions to clean the fish he caught.
