What Starbucks Cup in Episode 4 of Game of Thrones: Game of Thrones is the most popular and closely watched show. But last night Game Of Thrones episode sure took a lot out of us. All our hopes for love were destroyed. Last night aired a huge moment of lore discontinuity, as a celebratory feast in Winterfell happened to include a distinctly modern takeaway coffee cup among all the metal goblets of wine. It’s not obvious who the offending coffee drinker on set was, or what flavor of Starbucks brew they enjoy, but the position of the cup was on the grand table of the nobles, in front of Jon Snow’s seat. It’s also not clear whether this was a mistake — which would require all the actors and producers, plus all the editors afterward, to not notice — or some deliberate tongue-in-cheek insertion to get people riled up and talking about the show even more.
Yeah, you read that right. In the celebration scene in Winterfell, the keen eyes of Reddit spotted a Starbucks cup on the high table.
It looks like in between all the love and lives lost, Daenerys managed to find herself a refreshing cup of mocha latte (grande size of course, she’s the queen dammit!)
