When the future was on the table at 'The Game of Thrones'

'The Game of Thrones' crew could not see it, but the audience was not so dim.

When the future was on the table at 'The Game of Thrones'
Let’s face it, when winter’s come and there are more battles to plan, there is no better perk than caffeine.

It goes without saying, though, that a castle that has just fended off the White Walkers may not be in a position to rustle up java for a victorious Khaleesi. But with so many delivery options available, there is no reason why a Flat White latte cannot reach Winterfell even if the delivery person has to dodge the detritus of destroyed wights on the way there. But it should not arrive in a distinctive Starbucks cup complete with a stark white plastic cap when the rest are quaffing wine in pewter goblets.


Given that the episodes telecast so far in the final series of Game of Thrones (GoT) have been conspicuously bereft of light, maybe it was thought a stray time-travelling cup would merge into the general gloom.

If the container missed the eagle eyes of its own production crew, the chances of fans catching on were, well, dim. Clearly, the collective scanning powers of GoT junkies are keener than the Three-Eyed Raven’s.


Of course, this discovery will result in all future re-runs of the episode becoming a Spot-the-Cup game instead.

As that means good (and, possibly, unintended) publicity for Starbucks, will it come up with a commemorative cuppa now? A Grande Flat Wight to go, or a piping hot Venti Dracarys would do nicely.
