Plastic Water Bottles Appear in Game of Thrones Finale After Coffee Cup Gaffe

By Zachary Stieber

Two plastic water bottles were clearly visible in one of the scenes of the Game of Thrones series finale that aired on May 19, just weeks after a modern-day coffee cup was left on a table in another of the final season’s episodes.

The lords and ladies of Westeros gathered to try to free Tyrion and Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) from Grey Worm after Snow killed Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). They sat on chairs as they spoke with Tyrion and Grey Worm, eventually selecting a new king.

A close-up of the feet of some of those sitting revealed the bottles tucked under two of the chairs, a blunder highlighted by fans on social media. Pictures of the bottles circulated widely, used as evidence of the final season’s rush to the end that some fans felt was out of rhythm with the bulk of the show.

One bottle was underneath the chair of Samwell Tarly, half-hidden next to his left foot. The other was underneath the chair of Lord Davos Seaworth, visible between his right foot and that of Brienne of Tarth.

The blunders came after what appeared to be a Starbucks coffee cup was left on a table next to Targaryen.

Episode 4 contained a scene that had Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) speaking with Snow and others while Targaryen sits nearby watching them.

Directly in front of her sits a coffee cup that’s clearly not of the Game of Thrones world.

Viewers slammed the mistake.

“They really took 2 years to make 6 episodes and left a Starbucks cup in a scene,” one user wrote.

“Well that’s embarrassing,” wrote another.

Clarke later claimed that the cup did not belong to any of the actors or actresses before noting that there were over 200 people in the room and apparently no one noticed the mistake.

“I’m just going to let you in on a little Game of Thrones trivia. We don’t drink Starbucks. So anyone who’s clucking around with a Starbucks cup is someone who is not a cast member. There’s no mocha-wocha-frappuccino anywhere,” she told the New Yorker.

She said she was “ratting out craft services” before adding: “it could have been some very fancy producer’s mochaccino.”
