WARNING: The following article contains minor spoilers for the Game of Thrones Season 8 episode "The Last of the Starks," which premiered Sunday on HBO.
This week, eagle-eyed Game of Thrones fans spotted a pretty hilarious oversight, pointing out what appeared to be a Starbucks cup on a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen.
It happened about 17 minutes and 39 seconds into the most recent episode, during the celebratory feast in the great hall that followed the somber burning of the dead from the Battle of Winterfell. As a drunken Tormund Giantsbane regales anyone within earshot with proof of Jon Snow's greatness, Daenerys bristles at the love and loyalty engendered by the one-time King in the North. But glance down, and you'll notice the secret to Jon's almost superhuman feats: caffeine. It turns out it is, indeed, a Starbucks cup that was inadvertently left in the shot.
Now, HBO has responded with a little self-deprecating humor, tweeting, “News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. #Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
Starbucks has gotten in on the fun, too, tweeting, “TBH, we’re surprised she didn’t order a Dragon Drink.”
