The latest "Game of Thrones" episode featured a surprising detail. Shortly after the episode aired in the US on Sunday night, tweets started going viral showing a coffee cup seemingly left on a table by mistake during a feast scene.
About 17 minutes into season eight, episode four, "The Last of the Starks," a to-go coffee cup appears on the table in front of Daenerys Targaryen.
Though many people online have described the object as a Starbucks cup, the logo on the cup's side is unclear.
HBO's behind-the-scenes video, "The Game Revealed," includes a small appearance by a similar-looking coffee cup, suggesting that particular brand is common on the "Game of Thrones" set.
Last season, an image from the show featuring a pickup truck in the background circulated online. But that was simply a screenshot taken from a behind-the-scenes video. There was never a truck on the actual aired version of the episode. This time, the anachronistic coffee cup really did appear on the version of the latest episode.
