Daenerys Targaryen had a lousy week on Game of Thrones, but she wasn’t the only one.
Eagle-eyed viewers of Sunday’s episode noticed a Starbucks cup on a table by Emilia Clarke’s character as she shared a scene with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the Winterfell crew.
It prompted a huge reaction on Twitter, leading the show to acknowledge the error — with humor — by Monday afternoon. “Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea,” they joked.
Bernie Caulfield, an executive producer on the show, also addressed the error in an interview with WNYC radio on Monday. In addition to an “I’m sorry,” she joked that “Westeros was the first place to actually, you know, have Starbucks.” She also quipped, “If that’s the worst thing they’re finding, then we’re in good shape.”
But here’s how it played out: Twitter sleuths were quickly on the case to verify that the “Starbucks cup gaffe was real.”
Some fans were really upset about the mix-up, calling it “unprofessional” and accusing the production team of having “senioritis” in the HBO show’s last season.
But the majority of the posts were jokey in nature. From now until forever, folks will think of her as “Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen ... the Mother of Dragons ... and Drinker of Pumpkin Spice.”
Making it all even funnier, Starbucks actually has something called the Dragon Drink. Perhaps it’s Clarke’s next endorsement deal?
Of course, Starbucks joined in on the action too.
As we detailed in our recap, it was another rough week for Daenerys — separate of the Starbucks gaffe. After saying goodbye to Ser Jorah Mormont last week, she continued to deal with rough losses in “The Last of the Starks.”
