HBO, Starbucks respond to coffee cup cameo in Game of Thrones scene

Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Episode 4 Is Daenerys right for the throne

Much of "Game of Thrones" was filmed in Belfast, and the coffee spot was only a short distance from the filming locations. The character Daenarys Targaryen in Game of Thrones is known for her possession of dragons and the bond with those creatures. "Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea", HBO later said. According to Metro.co.uk, the coffee came from an independently-run shop in Belfast called Paper Cup.

Jokes, spoofs and critiques quickly followed the anachronistic appearance of the beverage - which appears to be from Starbucks - in the fourth episode of the eighth and final season.

Williams also weighed in on the moment, telling HBO: "Reading what I get to achieve, Arya's whole goal in this world and everything she's trained for comes down to this one episode".

None of the leaks have been substantiated yet, but many viewers are still pretty angry.

But the cup will now no longer appear in the episode when watched on services such as HBO Go, Sky, Now TV or when it's released on DVD.

Now that that cup is a bonafide star, we look forward to its role in at least one of the upcoming Game of Thrones spinoffs.

Being perhaps the biggest show around and in the midst of its final season, there's obviously going to be a lot of chatter about each new Game of Thrones episode.

You watch them, they haven't got the quality, but I like watching them a lot more than the ones in the red shirts, to be honest. "This is not a team", said the former United defender, "and the more I watch this, it's not a team".

"Things can get forgotten on set", he said.

More familiar with a horn of ale than a coconut cappuccino, Jon and Daenerys appeared oblivious to the offending cup, placed on one of the hall's long trestle-tables, as their raucous celebrations kicked off the episode. Starbucks themselves also got in on the fun, by tweeting out that they were "surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink".

Game of Thrones itself spoke out and added a banter-filled response to the gaffe, writing: "News from Winterfell".

Bernie Caulfield, an executive producer on the show told WNYC radio: "We're sorry!"

The Verge was among the first to report the change and even made a cool GIF, because that's how we consume and reconsume entertainment media now.

Nathalie Emmanuel has penned an emotional farewell to Game of Thrones after her character was killed off on Sunday night's episode.
