    Jason Momoa Revealed The Prop He Took From The Set Of “Game Of Thrones” And It’s Suitably Disgusting

    Khal Drogo would be proud.

    It’s almost time for Game of Thrones to end, so it’s only natural that cast members past and present are currently doing a lot of reminiscing about their time on the show. Today’s trip down memory lane comes from Khal Drogo himself, Jason Momoa.

    Now, Jason left the show all the way back in Season 1 (uh, 2011 spoiler alert), but that didn’t stop him from giving Entertainment Weekly a little history lesson recently.

    If you’ve seen the show, you’ll probably remember the scene where Drogo murders this dude by slitting his throat and ripping out his tongue. It’s pretty difficult to forget.

    Well, according to Jason, it was one of the first scenes in the show that hadn’t appeared in the books — and it was all his idea.

    I think it was one of the first scenes that was never in the book ... I always wanted to see [Drogo] go to battle. I didn’t want to do some elaborate fight scene. I think it’s [just as] intimidating to whisper in someone’s ear and go, “Stop that.” You can just parry; I don’t need to do any fight moves. Then you just take the guy’s sword and slice his throat out.

    And he was so proud of it, he decided to keep the prop tongue and throat that Drogo had ripped out.

    “I’m a big fan of taking the things that I worked with,” he said. “So I have the souvenir of the tongue and the throat. That’s just on my desk.”
