HBO finally responds to coffee cup left on table in 'Game of Thrones'

Yesterday, as you might expect on a Monday morning at this time of the year, all anybody was talking about was the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

Episode four brought plenty of drama, as well as a return to the politicking and the smack talking that some people have come to love about the show.

Here's the spine-tingling preview of what's about to arrive in episode five of Game of Thrones' final season:

But amidst [redacted]'s return to [redacted], [redacted] hooking up with [redacted] as well as the tragic deaths of [redacted] and [redacted], eagle-eyed Game of Thrones fans were all a-chatter about a very unusual prop in one of the scenes.

This prop, if you're not already aware of what I'm on about.

Fans were... pretty worked up, as I suppose you would be if your fantasy show shattered the illusion in such a blatant way. Game of Thrones art director Hauke Richter thinks everyone's blowing things out of proportion. "Things can get forgotten on set," he said, but that hasn't stopped Throners from commenting about it online!

Ha ha ha. Everybody had their jokes, and after the grim events of the episode that had just gone by, everyone had the chance to let off some steam. But thanks to the heavy flow for such an intense period of time, HBO were encouraged to respond to all those jokes.

"News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. #Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea," HBO said, tongue firmly in cheek. Well, good on them for having a great sense of humour about the whole thing.

Anyway, it's making me even more excited to watch episode five of Game of Thrones. I wonder what kind of coffee Cersei will order.

Lena Headey, who plays the character, is curious too; poking fun at the whole thing, she hoped that Cersei would get her order - which surprisingly, is not just a black coffee with no sugar.

"Ep 5 ..Do they open one in Kings Landing.. Will they use winter cups ..? Does Cersei get her oat pumpkin spice…" she mused on Instagram.
