A rogue coffee cup spotted on Sunday's "Game of Thrones" became a hot topic of conversation following the season's fourth episode, "The Last of the Starks," and HBO is getting in on the fun with an apt explanation.

"The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea," said HBO in a statement to INSIDER on Monday.

That's exactly what a Queen needs after losing her right-hand man, Jorah, and learning the love of her life is her nephew.

Fans spotted the coffee cup briefly during a celebratory scene at Winterfell on a table by Queen Daenerys.

Despite fans referring to the cup as one from Starbucks, HBO confirmed it was simply one from the set's craft services, which serves drinks and food to the cast and crew.

That's at least one "Thrones" mystery solved.
