Kenan Thompson enters as “Eel” Corlys Velaryon, who proceeds to introduce some new allies to their cause led by Silkie Johnson “Player of the Year” in 2002. Chappelle’s supreme speaker, accompanied by longtime co-star Donnell Rawlings, talks about butcher relationships Kinship with a casual “yak” before King Vizier’s obviously decadent roast and salute his “lightskin” cousin Larry Targaryen, played by Ice TV in slight retaliation for his cameo from the original “Playa Haters” sketch.
