Game of Thrones is on a very wild ride recently after featuring the most darkest and longest fights in film and television history and now the infamous Starbucks cup. In last night’s Game of Thrones episode “The Last Of The Starks,” there was a brief moment in which many fans spotted something out of the ordinary. While Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys was sitting during a scene there was a small cup of Starbucks sitting right next to her on the table. It was very hard to miss as the table really did not have much around and fans have now created various memes and edited image of the infamous scene. Now, HBO’s official Game of Thrones Twitter account has released a statement regarding the incident which you can see below.

Someone got the order wrong and Daenerys received a cup of coffee rather than herbal tea. HBO has played along with the joke as there is no doubt that a mistake was made during filming. It is a nice statement coming from HBO as Game of Thrones is currently one of their biggest properties. The production for Game of Thrones‘ final season has been the show’s biggest, so perhaps there was a mishap due to a tough schedule. Though a small incident, this may be one of the big highlights from Game of Thrones‘ final season following a brilliant response from HBO.
