Gay of Thrones star Jonathan Van Ness ends his final episode covering season 4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones by stepping outside the usual recap formula and pulling out some serious Meryl Streep realness.
Fans of the popular Web show will still be tickled by star Van Ness’s usual zany recap, but they will also be taken beyond the hair salon chair on an epic journey that includes a clever revelation, some surprising same-sex smooches – with frequent guest star and equally hilarious Jeffrey Self – a brutal betrayal and gasp! Game of Thrones creator and writer George R.R. Martin himself!
In our recent interview with Van Ness, the sassy star played coy about Martin’s knowledge of the Web series, saying, “I have heard that Martin and one of the producers thought my show was pretty funny, which was beyond flattering! Everyone behind Gay of Thrones are all are huge fans of the GoT and love getting to do such a fun recap of such a brilliant show!” Clearly Martin is something of a fan himself of the web show his novels inspired.
In true Gay of Thrones fashion, Van Ness and crew have left us gagging for more.
