Even queens need their coffee — especially after a “Long Night.” On Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” it appears that a Starbucks to-go cup was left next to Daenerys Targaryen in a scene that made it to TV.
Here’s a (lightened) screenshot of the moment:
If it’s not Starbucks, the item certainly appears to be a carry-out coffee or tea with a similar green coloring and a circular logo.
Don’t believe us on any of this? Re-watch last night’s episode via HBO Go and pause at the 17:38 mark.
“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake,” an HBO rep said in a statement Monday, getting in on the joke by adding: “Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
We don’t blame Dany, it probably gets pretty chilly in Winterfell’s Grand Hall — oh, and in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the scenes are shot.
For what it’s worth, a quick Google search indicates that there are about a dozen Starbucks locations in Belfast.
Sunday’s Episode 804, “The Last of the Starks,” revealed the aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell and Jon Snow’s and Daenerys’ plans to head south and take King’s Landing, and thus the Iron Throne, from Cersei Lannister. But the Lion Queen had her own strategy brewing in the background with Euron Greyjoy. By the end of the one-hour, 18-minute episode, Cersei had directly or indirectly claimed two lives Dany holds quite dear and set the stage for the “last war” to begin this coming weekend.
