In the process of recovering from the great tragedy that Season 8 of Game of Thrones was, here’s a new development. Benioff and Weiss finally explained what in the name of God, was a Starbucks cup doing in the scene.
So this started back in Season 8, which was a disappointment in itself on a whole different level, where a Starbucks coffee cup made an unwanted cameo! Soon after infamous episode released, an eagle-eyed fan took to Twitter to spread his snafu like a wildfire.
HBO and Starbucks both responded trying hard to veil it in humour.
News from Winterfell.

TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink.

Now, months later, when we are finally moving on from the great ‘destruction’, Benioff and Weiss have spoken about the incident:
” We were concentrating so much on Daenerys and Jon Snow that we just didn’t see this coffee cup right in the middle. So at first I couldn’t believe it, and then it was an embarrassment; how did we not see this coffee cup in the middle of the shot? And then, eventually, it was just funny. This one is just a mistake, and it’s kind of funny to us now.”
So yeah, it was nothing but just an honest mistake. Wait, are they going to say the same about Season 8 as well?
