One of the stars of Game of Thrones appears to have claimed responsibility over the now-famous cup that was left on a table during a scene in season eight. As it turns out, this equated to an insane amount of free advertising for Starbucks.
Clarke shared a photo on Wednesday of herself holding a coffee cup - alongside current co-star Peter Dinklage (Tyrion). Wait until you see who is with this new coffee cup that was spotted!
After plenty of shocking deaths, things then calmed down a little during last week's episode, as the survivors in the North dealt with the aftermath of the fight and took a bit of a breather.

The premium cable network has since digitally removed the coffee cup from versions of the episode streaming on HBO Now and HBO Go.
