An episode of Game of Thrones season 8 episode featured a coffee cup from a coffee shop and it blew up the internet. The co-creators of the show have not reacted to the coffee-cup gaffe.
Anyone who watched the final season of Game of Thrones would have spotted a coffee cup placed between Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke in the first episode. Anyone who didn’t watch the episode would have come across an image from the scene pointing out the error on social media. The coffee cup gaffe was the most talked about moment from the first episode of Game of Thrones. Memes were made, fans debated on which actor might have left the cup on the table and what not. Emilia Clarke and Sophie Turner reacted to it soon after the episode aired.
However, co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss months to react to the goof up just recently. The duo, in a conversation with Japan’s Star Channel, said that they were so caught up with Daenerys and Jon Snow that they did not see the cup right in the middle of the shot.
“We were concentrating so much on Daenerys and Jon Snow that we just didn’t see this coffee cup right in the middle. So at first I couldn’t believe it, and then it was an embarrassment because, ‘How did we not see this coffee cup in the middle of the shot?’ And then, eventually, it was just funny. This one is just a mistake, and it’s kind of funny to us now,” Benioff said.
Referrring to the mistake of making a Persian rug, Benioff added, “it’s tradition that you make a little mistake, because only God can do anything perfect. So I guess for us, that was just our… Persian rug.” “That’s why I put the coffee cup there,” Weiss added. Well, at least now we know who to blame. Back in the summer, Sophie pointed fingers at Emilia of leaving the cup in the scene only to change her mind and blame Kit for it.
