And now his watched is ended.
HBO has edited out the coffee cup that made a cameo on last Sunday’s Game of Thrones. The TV network confirmed that going forward, all airings of “The Last of the Starks” episode will no longer feature the errant cup, which was accidentally left behind on set by an “exhausted” crew member.
The gaffe was spotted at the 17:39 mark of the episode, during a scene in which Tormund Giantsbane is toasting Jon Snow during a post-battle celebratory meal. Daenerys Targaryen is seated nearest to the coffee, though she never acknowledges it.
Viewers naturally lost their minds over the incident, but GOT art director Hauke Richter said it was all being “blown out of proportion [because] it has not happened with Thrones so far.”
