Somewhere in tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones, between candles and period-appropriate munchies sat a very modern takeaway cup… just chilling there, saying hey from the Year 3000.
After the brutal events of tonight’s episode, it’s exactly what we needed. And by brutal we mean Jon Snow abandoning Ghost… among other terrible things we won’t mention just in case you accidentally stumbled upon this yarn without watching season eight, episode four ‘The Last of the Starks‘.

Naturally, the sight of a coffee cup seated beside the Mother of Dragons caused a raucous on Twitter. Sure, it’s just a little mistake that we’ll forget about in the long run but it’s still funny as hell. Oh, and season eight’s budget really was an eye-watering 90 million dollars. According to Variety, each episode of the final season cost HBO a cool $15 million apiece.
First up, this ripper of a tweet.
not surprised by that Starbucks cup, remember when they left Ed Sheeran in that scene

Finally, if you’ve had an absolutely shit day…
Felt like a failure today but then I saw that dozens of production and post-production crew failed to see that a Starbucks cup was left in a Game Of Thrones shot from their third to last episode ever & now I feel better.
