The coffee cup that appeared in the fourth episode of the final season of the fantasy series "Game of Thrones" was a mistake, HBO network has explained.
"The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys (the character Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke) had ordered a herbal tea," the company said in a statement, reported variety.com.
For about two seconds in "The Last of the Starks" episode, a takeout coffee cup appeared on a table in front of Targaryen around the 17 minutes, 40 second mark. Based on the size and shape, many fans assumed it was a Starbucks cup, and the hashtag #Starkbucks trended on Twitter after the episode.
The official Twitter account of Starbucks Coffee tweeted: "TBH we're surprised she didn't order a dragon drink."
