HBO explained on Monday that the white Starbucks coffee cup that somehow made its way into a split second shot in Sunday's Game of Thrones episode was accidentally forgotten on set. “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea," HBO said in a statement. According to The Los Angeles Times, executive producer Bernie Caulfield is  shocked the slip-up occurred, given that it hadn't happened before on the show. “Our on-set prop people and decorators are so on it 1,000 percent," he says. "Nowadays you can’t believe what you see ’cause people can put things into a photo that really doesn’t exist. But I guess maybe it was there, I’m not sure. But, yeah. We’re sorry!"
