And it was *really* obvious.


The night is dark, and full of coffee chains?

Eagle-eyed (or honestly even fairly inattentive) Game of Thrones viewers noticed a glaring error in Sunday night’s episode. During a celebratory feast, Daenerys (Mother of Dragons and Daughter of Caffeine Highs) is seated at the long table before what appears to be a tall Starbucks coffee cup. (AND IT IS SO OBVIOUS.)

The memes are coming:

Considering the historically painstaking efforts of the series to remain true to its fantastical realm, the audacity of this gaffe is jarring. With only two episodes to go, were they just like “f— it, let’s do some product placement,” or does art simply imitate life and it was only a matter of time before a Starbucks cropped up on every Westeros corner?

Add it to the list of fan q’s David Benioff and D.B. Weiss probably won’t answer. In the meantime, may we suggest that you continue to reel from last night's episode GoT-style, with a Caramel Macchiato (no whip, almond milk) in hand?
