HBO ‘Fixes’ That Coffee Cup Mistake, Fans React With Even More Memes

We all thought Game of Thrones fans were would never let up about the lighting during the ‘Battle at Winterfell’ – that was until the coffee cup was introduced in “The Last of the Starks,” the fourth episode (and third-to-last) of the eighth and final season. During a party scene in the better lit episode, fans noticed a prop that didn’t appear to fit in with quasi-medieval realm – a lone Starbucks cup.

Despite the hard work and attention to detail the production designers and their crew put into each episode, it seems someone didn’t have their coffee that day and left the unapproved prop laying in front of Emilia Clarke. After a flood of memes and critiques by the fans HBO responded with a written statement. However, viewers were relentless so they took some digital steps.

The cup was left in front of actress Emilia Clarke and fans went nuts, so HBO responded with a written statement:

“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.” However, executive producer Bernadette Caulfield took a more apologetic tone and said she was shocked. “I can’t believe it,” she told WYNC. “Our on-set prop people and decorators are so on it one thousand percent. I just honestly can’t, I’m like, is that really? Because nowadays you can’t believe what you see because people can put things into a photo that really doesn’t exist. But I guess maybe it was there, I’m not sure. But, yeah. We’re sorry!”
