Can’t slip this one past eagle-eyed Game of Thrones viewers. Thanks, apparently, to an editing error in a scene about 17 minutes in to last night’s “The Last of the Starks” episode, an errant coffee cup (presumed immediately to be Starbucks) appeared on a table in Winterfell’s Great Hall.
It came during a scene in which Tormund Giantsbane is toasting his friend Jon Snow in celebration of their victory over the Night King. It’s also in clear sight of Daenerys Targaryen, who’s seated at the table.
Jon and Daenerys appeared oblivious to the offending cup, but it was not lost on viewers who immediately took to social media to express their dismay.
It also turns out it was not a Starbucks cup, a source close to the show tells Deadline, but it’s giving the company a ton of free publicity.
Noting the very 21st century beverage in his review of last night’s GoT, Deadline’s Chief TV Critic Dominic Patten was one of those mocking the visual misstep online on Sunday.
And we ask Deadliners to leave a comment suggesting just which coffee drink that might have been and whose name was written on it.
