Leslie Jones returned to Late Night With Seth Meyers Wednesday for another installment of Game of Jones, a recurring skit that features the Saturday Night Live star's unadulterated opinions on HBO's hit fantasy drama.

Jones, who frequently live-tweets the show, offered passionate commentary (and solid dragon impersonations) while taking in the most recent episode with Meyers, who admitted that Jones "was watching the show at another level."

"Because I AM Game of Thrones, homie," Jones explained.

Here are some of her funniest takeaways from Sunday's dragon-filled episode:

- On Bronn:

"Bronn is the gangsta, yo. Bronn is the dude, like, in the hood that knows where all the $1 cigarettes is."

- On romance with Littlefinger:

"I do believe that I said I still would do it with Littlefinger, I would just have to watch him the whole time. I couldn't have my eyes closed in passion."

- On the Stark siblings:

"Bran - they really just need to get a blood test on him because I just think he's high."

"ARYAAAAA. Arya is a warrior."

"This is definitely not a black family. First of all, Bran's home, Arya's home, nobody wants to make no macaroni and cheese? I'm saying nobody wants to get together and have some chicken and ribs and stuff. Littlefinger can't get no hamburger buns? You know what I'm saying? This a reunion!"

- On the White Walkers:

"I'm not saying that black people have been right all the time, but check this out. Blue-eyed devils. Those is white folks ... that came out the cave and they took over."

- On Varys:

"Varys is like the girlfriend that you don't know if she really your homegirl or not. Because one minute she's supporting you and got your back, but then the next minute you hear abut some bullshit she said to somebody else about you."

(Just as Jones was explaining that Varys needs to stop talking about people behind their back, actor Conleth Hill showed up in full costume, which made Jones very excited.)

Hill: "What were you saying about me?"

Jones: "I was saying that you can't trust your ass, but you know shit that you're not telling everybody."

On Theon, whom she refers to exclusively as Theron:

"Theron is a coward. He's a cow-ward."

- On dragons:

(Singing) "Here come the dragon. Here come the dragon. Yeah baby!" (dragon noises)

"Burn it up!"
