Any Game of Thrones fan knows the tremendous amount of attention showrunners devote to tiny details.
From the opening sequence to little hints at what is going to happen next, it’s clear that each and every frame has been carefully curated for fans.
But unlike the now-gone White Walkers, showrunners are human. And humans make mistakes.
About 17 minutes into Season 8, Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks,” a Starbucks (or what appears to be a Starbucks) coffee cup appears on the table in front of Daenerys Targaryen.
Let’s zoom in and brighten, in case the much-maligned GoT lighting made you miss it.

In Season 7, an image from the show featuring a pickup truck in the background made the rounds — however, it was just a screenshot taken from a behind-the-scenes video.
This fuck-up was real-time and actually made it to air.
Clearly, we’ll all have to stop watching the show now.
