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.

Fans on Twitter and Reddit noticed the cup and began sharing photos and videos of this unexpected modern addition to the intricate sets of Winterfell.

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.
