WARNING: This story may contain spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4.
From all of the bizarre things we’ve seen on Game of Thrones—from an undead dragon to the warlocks of Qarth—a disposable coffee cup probably takes the cake.
In last night’s episode, fans spotted the cup on the table of the great hall of Winterfell as the surviving army celebrated their victory against the battle against the undead. While the cast ate from wooden bowls and swigged from goblets (except for Tormund, who chugged his drink from a horn), the coffee cup was definitely out of place.
Some viewers on Twitter suggested the drinking vessel was from Starbucks, given the faint resemblance of the company’s logo, but that remains unclear. What we do know is that people dragged the show for the misplaced prop. Considering all of the money poured into this series, someone should’ve noticed the coffee, or at least edited it out, right?

I THOUGHT THEY WERE JOKING WHEN THEY SAID THAT THERE WAS A COFFEE CUP IN ONE OF THE SCENES IN THE NEW EPISODE SO I PLAYED IT BACK AND OH MY GOD I AM LAUGHING SO HARD
GAME OF THRONES IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST BUDGETED TV SHOWS AND THEY FORGOT TO REMOVE THE FREAKING COFFEE CUP pic.twitter.com/K1URaj6aUF

I cannot get over how the makers of #GameOfThrones put fans on blast for not having expensive enough TVs to fully appreciate their visually perfect show then this week there’s actually enough light to see the screen and their sloppy asses fully left a 2019 coffee cup in the shot. pic.twitter.com/gzUjhkn9xY

Not a spoiler. But how does a PAPER COFFEE CUP make it past editing in #GameOfThrones? As a producer and editor myself it’s unfathomable considering these get color, etc. @ 17:40 (spotted by others) pic.twitter.com/wn6Tih2DGk

Some also took a jab at the writing.

Others joked that the rogue mug belonged to Daenerys (although she’s seen clutching her own cup at her seat).
