A couple of weeks ago in the fourth episode of the eight season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, eagle-eyed fans discovered that someone had left a Starbucks cup on the table in a scene. It was a pretty hilarious sighting given that obviously Starbucks has yet to open up shop in Westeros.
Many had assumed it was a one-off mistake, but it seems that lightning has struck twice. During the series finale, fans discovered a couple of instances in which water bottles used by the cast were left in some scenes. This not only happened once, but twice. Now, we won’t spoil it for you but you can check it out below if you’ve already seen the episode or if you don’t care about spoilers.
HBO had previously acknowledged the mistake and made it sound like it was a one-time deal, but judging by this, perhaps not and we have to wonder what they might have to say about that. We also have to wonder, if this has already happened twice this season, could there have been similar mistakes made in previous seasons that fans might have missed? We imagine that many will probably be going back to take a look.

In the meantime, Game of Thrones has officially concluded. Reactions to the final episode have been mixed, but the general consensus seems to be that the final season did not live up to the hype. This has led to many fans petitioning HBO to remake the entire season (which seems unlikely).
