What many people love about “Game of Thrones” is its meticulous attention to detail, but Sunday night eagle-eyed viewers spotted something that was out of place in Winterfell.
[WARNING Spoiler Alert: The remainder of this article will discuss Season 8, Episode 4 of “Game of Thrones”]
While Jon Snow and Tormund Giantsbane celebrate the victory over the Night King, the camera pans to Daenerys Targaryen, who appears to be upset. It is later revealed that she doesn’t like that Snow was receiving all the attention over the victory in Winterfell.
When the camera cuts to Daenerys sipping the wine, social media users were quick to point out to an item that was out of place. A cup from out of the realm appeared to be sitting on the table: a Starbucks cup that had been left while the scene was being prepped.
"You're telling me they had TWO YEARS to put together a decent show and they couldn't even spot the g—n Starbucks cup in Winterfell??!?! #GameOfThrones," one user wrote. Others agreed:
In response to the viral coffee cup, HBO said in a statement on Monday that it "was a mistake."
“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea," the network stated.
A Reddit user appeared to be the first one to spot the item.It’s unclear whether it was a Starbucks cup or another kind of coffee cup. But it did not appear to be an item that would be regularly seen in Westeros.
