If you aren’t caught up on the sixth season of Game of Thrones, first of all, why? And second of all, I’m about to spoil something huge for you so you should probs stop reading now and immediately go watch, because really, what the hell have you been doing instead?
Now that that problem’s solved, let’s talk about what really matters. Further solidifying his place as a betch, Kit Harington went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he told the world’s most relatable story about how he talked his way out of a speeding ticket, only his is way better than that time you pulled your shirt down to show a little cleavage or cried while digging through your glove compartment for the registration your mom has repeatedly told you not to lose—“I swear officer, it’s in here I’ve just never needed it because I’m really just, like, such a great driver!”
Anyway, apparently Jon Snow “was being a bit naughty” (his words, not mine, because that’s literally a phrase only an English person could pull off) and was driving just a tad too fast when an officer stopped him and gave him quite an interesting ultimatum.
“I was driving back from my parents’ house, and I was driving too fast actually…I was going over the speed limit, and I feel the sirens go off behind me,” said Snow, adding that the police officer pulled him over.
“And he said, ‘Look, there’s two ways we can do this: you can either follow me back to the police station now and I book you in, or you can tell me whether you live in the next season.’ I looked at him and went, ‘I’m alive next season.’ And he says, ‘On your way, Lord Commander.’”
Essentially, this random police officer knew the answer to the question on everyone’s lips for the past year before anyone else on the planet. If all cops wanted to know was Game of Thrones trivia every time I got caught doing something stupid behind the wheel, my savings account would end in way more zeroes. Now if anybody needs me, I’ll be hitting up my local police precinct for season 7 spoilers.
