If there’s one thing I know, it’s never start a land war in Asia. The second thing I know is if you are a showrunner for Game of Thrones and you are speaking with Jason Momoa at peak Khal Drogo, never challenge him to a feat of strength.

David Benioff learned the second lesson too late, as illustrated in this HBO Backstory video concerning his misstep of challenging Momoa to a slap fight.

Well, at least it wasn’t his face getting slapped into another timeline where George RR Martin finished The Winds of Winter before the 2019 premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones. So that’s nice.
