UPDATE: Furthermore, Executive Producer Bernie Caulfield apologized to fans of the series, ensuring that the mishap only occurs once in a bloom. “Our on-set prop people and decorators are so on it, a thousand percent,” she reassured viewers. While many followers raised an eyebrow at the seemingly amateur mistake, a few were quick to defend Game of Thrones and its showrunners, stating that their high-caliber production level can be exhausting for anyone.

A few hours and a dozen or so headlines later, HBO has come out with an official statement on Starbucksgate and the recent appearance of a coffee cup in last night’s Game of Thrones episode “The Last of the Starks.”

In regards to the Tall beverage, HBO states “the latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.” An executive producer of the show named Bernie Caulfield also confirmed that the cup was a mistake on a radio show this morning, stating: “Westeros was the first place to actually, you know, have Starbucks.”

Following last week’s criticisms, the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is under scrutiny once again for showcasing a Starbucks cup in a shot of last night’s episode.

Some feel the discontinuity of the series is at an all-time high following season 8, episode 3, and not catching a coffee cup blatantly visible in the shot doesn’t bode well for folks disappointed with the series’ endgame so far. Lore and prophecies like Azor Ahai have all but been ignored, according to disgruntled viewers online, however, many also believe the act was intentionally done to get people talking about the show more. The Starbucks cup arrives at the 17:40 mark of the episode.

Check out the images and reactions below, then check out the preview for episode 5, the penultimate installment of the series.
