Starbucks in Winterfell? GOT jokes about rogue coffee cup

While the survivors of Winterfell celebrated with a boozy night of drinking games after defeating the Night King, it seems Daenerys Targaryen had sensibly decided to keep her head clear.

In the latest episode of Game Of Thrones, eagle-eyed viewers were quick to spot a rogue modern-day disposable coffee cup on a table in front of the Mother of Dragons, played by Emilia Clarke.

To be fair to her, the Great War might have been over but there was still the Last War against Cersei Lannister in King's Landing to prepare for. You don't want to try that on a hangover, even if you have got dragons on your side.

But as everyone else drank from horns and goblets, the offending item stood out like a sore thumb.


Game Of Thrones makers have now poked fun at themselves over the issue, tweeting: "News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

The general consensus from fans was that the cup appeared to be from Starbucks.

"Winterfell really got the first Starbucks in history. Crazy," said one Twitter user.

"You're telling me they had TWO YEARS to put together a decent show and they couldn't even spot the goddamn Starbucks cup in Winterfell??!?" said another.

And of course, there were lots of internet memes doing the rounds.

Night King: Im here to gentrify Westeros.

Daenerys: Hold my Pumpkin Spice.
