One of the most talked about moments in Game of Thrones Season 8 had nothing to do with the story itself. Instead, a Starbucks cup left in one of the shots during an episode's opening banquet has stirred a lot of debate.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted the errant cup on a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen as she watches Jon Snow celebrate with Tormund. The moment became viral, with HBO admitting that the cup was indeed from Starbucks. Actress Emilia Clarke has gotten in on the joke in a cheeky Instagram post.
