Sunday night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” left viewers with a lot of questions for the remaining two episodes of the long-running series.

Add Game of Thrones as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Game of Thrones news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
The first part of the episode showed everyone up at Winterfell celebrating their (well, Arya’s) victory over the Night King with lots of drinking, carousing and canoodling.
That sequence also set up the growing tension between Daenerys and Jon Snow now that they both know Jon’s true lineage. One scene shows Tormund quite literally splashing his praise on Jon, setting up the contrast between Jon and Daenerys, who has grown increasingly isolated.
Daenerys can be seen in the background watching Jon being praised. And that’s where fans believe a Starbucks cup was inadvertently left in a shot, sitting to the side of actress Emilia Clarke.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to see if others had seen what they saw.
The fact that there was a Starbucks cup in tonight’s Game of Thrones that no producers or editors noticed throughout multiple cuts merely 1 week after the DP yelled that the show’s not too dark to see is truly *chef’s kiss*

Some weren’t quite as convinced. HBO has not responded to ABC News’ request for comment.
I drink a lot of Starbucks, and while that cup definitely didn’t belong in Westeros, that’s definitely not a Starbucks cup.

Still, of course, fans came in with the jokes and art.
With all the tweets about the Starbucks cup in the GoT scene, I decided to look throughout history and see if I could see Starbucks cups at some key points in time. I found cups at the murder of Julius Cesar, the birth of Christ, the inquisition, and signing of the declaration pic.twitter.com/G7RRfhx2Lb

But at the end of the day, fans recognized that while the possible gaffe was fun, we still need to find out who ends up on the Iron Throne at the end of all this.

There are two episodes left in “Game of Thrones” and many players are still in contention to end up on top. We’re gonna need a lot more caffeine to keep up with the twists and turns.
