Where is work done, there are also mistakes they say!
We’re talking about the 4th episode of season 8, in which fans have spotted a modern coffee cup staying in front of Daenerys Targaryen. If you already watched the new episode of Game Of Thrones that aired on Sunday, you might have noticed the famous mishap.
It is surprising how the cup went unnoticed by a group of professionals who worked on the episode editing though. And the fans can’t stop talking about it. They even pushed HBO to respond to this.

According to what Bernie Caulifield, an executive producer on the show told the WNYC radio, the cup was just a simple mistake. He told this radio: “Westeros was the first place to actually, you know, have Starbucks.”
Game Of Thrones profile on Twitter also apologized the fans for this mistake, telling the fans that “Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
In the scene Daenerys Targaryen is seen sitting down at a table while Jon Snow and Tormund are celebrating their victory. This because during the battle of Winterfell, the Northerners defeated the Night King and his Army of the Dead. The unlikely object is placed on the table, in front of Daenerys.
As soon as the fans caught the mistake they started to tweet and make jokes online. While one said that the coffee cup wasn’t from Starbucks, there were others that found it hard to believe it was a mistake. This because it took two years for season 8 to come to our screens.

Whether the company will edit the episode and remove the Starbucks cup we don’t know yet, but the cup continues to be present on the HBO’s streams of episode.
