But there's a major plot twist: The disposable cup that made its way into the "Game of Thrones" scene didn't even belong to the beverage chain but from a local coffee shop in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, which is proximate to the scene's location.

Game of Thrones fans freaked out last Sunday when someone noticed a Starbucks cup was located in one of the scenes during the fourth episode of Season 8 that aired on Sunday, May 5.

Obviously, Twitter went nuts after discovering this and in the days since, it's been a rather hot topic, with many wondering how the show's production team could have let it go unnoticed.

She joked on Instagram: "Did I stumble upon the truth here?! Like I said, he's a cheeky one". The network then digitally erased the cup and re-uploaded the episode, as if nothing happened.
