Game of Thrones is one of the biggest TV shows of all time. The HBO production has millions of dollars behind it, a team of some of the most creative and talented people making it, and presumably dozens of people pouring over every frame to make sure it’s perfect. But sometimes all that isn’t enough to prevent the occasional mistake from slipping through, as we all saw in Season 8, Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks.”
Following Episode 3’s massive battle against the Night King, the armies of Westeros kicked their feet back to celebrate their victory. Much merriment was being made, as heroes were celebrated and the wine was being consumed in copious quantities. Seated at the center of the head table was Daenerys, who watched as the people flocked around Jon Snow, singing praises of his prowess in battle. However, for those that were paying close attention, something in the scene stuck out like a sore thumb.
No, it wasn’t the forlorn look on Dany’s face, though that was certainly noticeable. It was, in fact, a coffee cup. We’re not talking about a tankard full of the North’s finest coffee, we’re talking about a straight up, modern day coffee cup like the one you’d have handed to you at a Starbucks. Naturally, that shouldn’t have been there, and the internet is having a great time poking fun at the mishap.
Mistakes happen, and as it goes this one is pretty funny. It does make you wonder how no one managed to spot the coffee cup, though. But, y’know what, they’ve just defeated one of the biggest threats mankind has ever faced, so people are entitled to have a coffee. Thanks a latte, Dany.
Game of Thrones Episode 3 proved to be quite divisive among fans, but the follow-up has been more positively received. Check out our full Game of Thrones, Episode 5, “The Last of the Starks” review to see what we thought of it. You can also watch the preview trailer for Episode 5 here.
