Eagle-eyed fans caught the sneaky cup that was left behind in the shot which left them wondering — if there is Starbucks in the GOT universe, what does Jon Snow order?
If you haven’t seen it, you can catch the cup in the video below.
Then, HBO has confirmed that it was an accident.
Bernie Caulfield, an executive producer on the show, said it was a mistake and apologized to fans in an interview with WNYC radio today.
“Westeros was the first place to actually, you know, have Starbucks,” he said.
He went on to say the a slip up like that is super rare for the show because “prop people and decorators are so, you know, so on it 1,000 percent.” He added that, “if that’s the worst thing they’re finding, then we’re in good shape.”
HBO also put out a statement, poking fun at the whole ordeal.
“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea,” it read.
Now, it seems as if a similar incident has happened again.
During last night’s series finale that already had fans buzzing for various reasons, they noticed a water bottle in the background of one of the scenes. The moment in particular contains spoilers.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead
You can see the water bottle behind the foot of Samwell Tarley in the scene below.

THE WATER BOTTLE.
THIS IS NOT EVEN FUNNY ANYMORE.
We’ve had a coffe cup, a cameraman, sneakers, Jamie two handed, Drogon flying alone over KL and now a water bottle.

Now we’ll have to wait and see what the show has to say about this one.
Other Game Of Thrones news
The petition titled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” has garnered almost 1 million signatures on Change.org. The petition calls upon viewers to work together to get HBO to remove writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and remake the entire season.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition’s page says. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
In a tweet, Gaskarth says viewers don’t get to “dictate” Hollywood. However, Gaskarth further notes that his comments are not Game Of Thrones-specific. Instead, he makes note of viewers’ “sense of entitlement.”
“Fuck this. As an observer/consumer you don’t get to dictate how the creative process develops,” Gaskarth says. “You can not like a thing, that’s fine… Go create something better. We need this passion for things that matter, not how you want your fav TV show to end.”
Btw this has nothing to do with GoT…. more the sense of entitlement that a petition should even matter in this context. So. Dumb.

Additionally, Reinhart’s comments were very similar. In an Instagram comment, Reinhart disagrees with the notion that fans can demand “creative change from artists,” in regards to television.
“This is not how television works,” Reinhart says. “TV shows are not fan service. It’s ridiculous of people to think they can demand creative change from artists.”
