“Can someone please explain to me the origin of Starbucks in Westeros?”
A few hawk-eyed fans spotted the anachronism in Sunday’s premiere of Episode 4 in the final season of Game of Thrones… and by the look of all these memes; it doesn’t look like they’re going to forget about it anytime soon.

Reportedly, each episode of in Season 8 cost over $15 million dollars to make which indicates that the coffee cup [Arya Stark-level] snuck past the eyes of many experts and edits. And to be completely honest, it’s hilarious! With all the heavy-hitting chaos going on in Westeros, it’s actually quite nice to release the ever-lasting anxiety with a few laughs.
That’s why we’ve gathered a few of our favorite memes surfacing the internet. Enjoy!

1. After last week's #GameOfThrones, the cinematographer had to fight off criticism that it was too dark and people couldn't see.
2. So this week he inserts an offending Starbucks cup into dark scene.
3. People spot the cup, cinematographer vindicated.https://t.co/V2Xx05BatT

At first I thought Dany was pissed off because everyone was calling Jon a king.
