While SNL typically turns to politics for their Cold Opens, the show decided to give everyone the pop culture references they really want and decided to go with a Family Feud sketch to open the show, with characters from Avengers: Endgame facing off against characters from Game of Thrones.

On the Avengers' side, they had the mighty Thor (Alex Moffat), the jacked Thanos (Beck Bennett), the powerful Okoye (Ego Nwodim) and Groot (Leslie Jones)

Over on the Game of Thrones side, they brought together Brienne (Kate McKinnon), Tormund (Mikey Day), Melisandre (Cecily Strong) and Bran (Kyle Mooney), and the head-to-head managed to poke fun brilliantly as the two biggest titans of the current cultural zeitgeist.

"Right on time, again!" host Steve Harvey (Kenan Thompson) quipped, referring to Arya's masterful performance in the Battle of Winterfell during GoT's last episode.

When it came to bucket lists, however, Arya slyly hinted at her own bucket-list fulfillment from the second episode of this season, when she lost her virginity.

"Oh say no more, I saw what you did in that episode," Harvey said, with a laugh, as he pointed to the board, where "Get That Booty" was actually on the board.
