Sometimes when you watch a movie or TV show you see something in the scene that shouldn’t be there. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4, titled “The Last of the Starks,” contained an accidental Easter egg after sharp-eyed fans spotted a modern Starbucks-style coffee cup sitting in front of Daenerys Targaryen during the Winterfell feast. It certainly looks like a Starbucks cup, though that brand is not commonly used on the Belfast set, usually the cast get coffee from craft services — either way, not your typical Westeros gear. HBO issued this tongue in cheek reply: “In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, HBO states, ‘The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.’” Notice that also disputes, in an indirect way, that it was a Starbucks branded cup, but rather the set’s own craft services department. No knowledge if the coffee was dark and full of pumpkin spice.
