Well, how would you react if you met Khal Drogo in the flesh?

On Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Scandal star Kerry Washington revealed that her parents — who are huge Game of Thrones fans — embarrassed her at an HBO after-party for the Emmys a few years ago. Despite having been married to Washington’s father for “over 40 years,” her mother “turned into a 16-year-old girl” upon meeting Jason Momoa. She totally lost it, says Washington, but her father didn’t seem to mind: “My dad’s crush is about the same.”

Needless to say, Washington’s parents did not attend the Emmys at their daughter’s side this year.

The segment ended with host Jimmy Kimmel putting a mental image in Washington’s mind that will surely haunt her nightmares for the rest of her life. Check it out above.
