AceShowbiz - The Starbucks cup-gate apparently is not the one and only blunder that is happening in "Game of Thrones" season 8. Some eagle-eyed fans of the hit HBO show, which wrapped its story in the Sunday, May 19 series finale, discovered another anachronism error in the episode.
At one point in the episode 6 of the show's final season, some characters including Sam Tarwell and Arya Stark gather in a meeting of Westeros' lords and ladies to select the next ruler of the six kingdoms. However, there is one thing that people spot in during the scene. A water bottle can be seen tucked behind the boot of Sam at the 46:19 mark.
Additionally, another water bottle is seen lurking onscreen as it is spotted behind Davos' chair.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to make fun of the editing error. "LMAOOO I CAN'T BREATHE THEY DID IT AGAIN First Starbucks now a water bottle this show is a joke," one fan wrote on the micro-blogging site. "A water bottle in King's Landing!!" another user tweeted.
HBO has yet to respond on the mistake, though it previously played down the coffee cup flub. "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake," a statement from network bosses read. "Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."
And the show's art director, Hauke Richter, told Variety, "Things can get forgotten on set. (The cup has been) so blown out of proportion...."
The Starbucks cup gaffe occurred in the fourth episode of the show's eighth and final season which aired on May 5. The Starbucks-style disposable hot drink holder was spotted on a table during a feast scene at the beginning of the episode, as Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen character watched over the festivities.
