What If Cookie Lyon Ruled Westeros? SNL Mashes Up "Game Of Thrones" And "Empire"

Travel to Game Of Thrones' eighth kingdom, South Centros, where people slay for hightop sandals.

The seven kingdoms of Westeros are no match for Cookie Lyon. She's ruling the secret eighth kingdom, South Centros.

Everyone loves a good Game of Thrones spoof and everyone better love Empire's Cookie if they know what's good for them. Saturday Night Live brought the two together in a skit that brings Westeros to the hood. 

The violent village of South Centros is also home to the centuries-old, bloody rivalry between the Lannisters and um, the House of Ice Cube. Jamie Lannister lolls about the place (GoT's fifth season premiers tomorrow!) and just like in Game of Thronescharacters' lives span just a little more than a couple of milliseconds.

But that doesn't mean there isn't a story to be told. In fact, there is so much bloodshed that "if it was a book, it’d be seven long-ass books."
