Sophie Turner Blames Emilia Clarke for That Coffee Cup in 'GoT'

Game of Thrones season eight, the final season of HBO's hit series, only has two more episodes left. "That's in a different episode", Turner said about said picture. On the other, someone forgot to remove a Starbucks cup from a shot in this decidedly non-modern television program.

Turner said she received just one text from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jamie Lannister, which read, "G$3 reat episode, is that a coffee cup?".

"Game of Thrones" fans on Twitter were abuzz over the appearance of a stray coffee cup that appeared in a scene in Sunday's episode, "The Last of the Starks".

Sophie Turner went on "The Tonight Show" while in New York City and disputed "Cup-gate" being her fault after her husband accused her!

Of course, none of this really matters, because it's not the actors who edit the fucking show, so really it's none of their faults.

But as it turns out, Emilia Clarke might have low-key tried to warn us all that we weren't going to be thrilled with Dany's ending months ago. It happens in the scene when he goes to hug Cersei shortly before they both die.

Later Sunday, Trump reiterated his view in a tweet: "We will be taking in Tens of Billions of Dollars in Tariffs from China ". President Trump said Beijing "broke the deal" by backtracking on earlier commitments to change its policies.

"Clarke, with a cup in hand, added the hashtags to her photo "#forthethrone" and "#forthecaffeine".

"I mean, look who it's placed in front of..." she said. Turner has movies that precede Game of Thrones that you might want to watch when you're missing the oldest Stark girl.

Emilia Clarke, whose character Daenerys Targaryen is facing trouble on many fronts in her pursuit of the Iron Throne, could probably do with a coffee right about now.

Discussion of the coffee cup culprit begins around the 2:30 mark of the video but honestly, the entire interview is quite the ride.

She commented: "Did I just stumble upon the truth here?!"
