Warning: Contains Spoilers
Okay so Game of Thrones is over, the war of the Seven Kingdoms is done, and I officially don’t know what to do with my life.
Apart from ask that one question over and over again that has everyone scratching their heads as we all try to figure out what the hell happened to lead us here.
Is it why that particular person was made king? Or why the writers decided to kill off that one major character? Nope. It’s more along the lines of: Whose darn water bottle was that on set?!
Yep, #StarbucksGate has happened once more – this time, with a plastic water bottle which is almost hidden underneath Samwell Tarly’s chair.
If you somehow managed to miss it, a Starbucks coffee cup mysteriously showed up in one of the scenes in The Last of the Starks, sending viewers into a frenzy about where it came from, whose it was, and why it was on set in the first place.
People were also kinda pissed off that for a show with such a massive budget, they couldn’t be bothered to check for simple continuity issues. But hey, mistakes happen right?
Well, you might think that if it had happened just the one time… but eagle-eyed fans of the show have spotted yet another mistake in the latest episode, The Iron Throne.
As Tyrion was taken in shackles to the remaining heads of the great houses to decide his fate, the plastic water bottle made its grand entry as it could be seen peeking out behind Samwell’s leg while he’s sitting down.
Which is more than just a little bit awkward and at this point, I have to question if the production team are doing it on purpose? Or if the actors have a competition to see who can sneak things into shot?
Anyway, as you can imagine, people took to social media as soon as they spotted the bottle:

Damn I guess plastic bottles can’t be THAT bad for the environment because they’ve been around since Game of Thrones https://t.co/Ez0FkPEf5s

I’m sorry but I want to know who even spotted that in the first place?! I had to squint and turn my brightness up to even notice it.
Unless someone was so disappointed with that ending that they had to re-watch it with the hope that maybe they’d get just a glimpse of entertainment?
I guess we’ll never know.
