A Starbucks Cup Was Left In A “Game of Thrones” Scene — Fans Are Losing It

game of thrones coffee

We realize that Game of Thrones is set in a mythological universe, and therefore anything is possible (re: dragons, walking dead, Bran knowing the history of everything, etc.). However, we were almost certain that Starbucks doesn’t exist in this pretend realm. But after fans caught a glimpse of a Starbucks cup in a scene of last night’s Game of Thrones episode, everyone is questioning everything.

The scene we’re referring to occurred at the beginning of Season 8 Episode 4, which aired last night, May 5th. It’s the scene in which the survivors of the Battle of Winterfell are rejoicing, having just defeated the Night King and his army of White Walkers. Well, Arya defeated the Night King single-handedly. But, still. Everyone is just happy they’re still alive.

While Tormund Giantsbane expresses his love and adoration for Jon Snow, and Daenerys Targaryen watches with a pang of jealousy, fans noticed something *very* out of place.

Someone left their Tall Starbucks coffee cup, complete with the logo-stamped cardboard sleeve, on the table in front of the Mother of Dragons. We wonder if Dany only drinks blonde roast?

Of course, an error as egregious and noticeable as a white coffee cup left on the head table in the Winterfell great hall got a lot of press. In fact, Twitter was (and still is) on fire.

It’s there. It’s really there.

How in the Hodor did no one notice this? This is HBO for gosh sake!

It’s not even something the creators could brush off as an Easter egg. It’s just a mistake of epic proportions.

We need an explanation and we need it now. What events led to this?

This treachery has Sansa Stark written all over it. We love the drama.

Bran should have seen it. It should have been dealt with.

Leave Ghost out of this. He’s been through hell this season and we all know it.

We suppose the Mother of Dragons gets what the Mother of Dragons wants. “I have a Tall blonde roast for Danny Taragon.”

Don’t try to make a Westeros Starbucks origin story happen. It’s not going to happen.

But TBH, who are we to question anything anymore? *chef’s kiss*

Honestly, the creators clearly suffered from “senioritis” while working on the final season of the show. They’re finishing Game of Thrones like we took our finals before graduation — fast and full of mistakes.

Let’s wrap this up so we can hit the grad parties. Right, boys?

If you ever feel down about yourself, just remember that the entire Game of Thrones staff missed this. You’re doing amazing, sweetie.

No surprise deaths can rattle us as much as this Starbucks cup did. Well, that and the weird Ed Sheeran cameo in Season 7.

Listen, if the Northmen show up to King’s Landing in next week’s episode armed with Starbucks Frappuccinos and Burger King meals, we’re going to have to call it quits.
