After Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones, all anyone could talk about was the Starbucks cup left in front of Daenerys Targaryen during Season 8, Episode 4. Now, HBO has erased the error by editing it out of the tense scene.

While HBO did not announce that they were moving the steaming cup of joe, GoT fans who stream on HBO Go or Crave will probably notice that the caffeine receptacle has since been removed. “The latte that appearaed in the episode was a mistake,” a spokeswoman for HBO released in a statement. “Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”

“We are usually so diligent that this does not happen,” Art Director Hauke Richter explained, according to TMZ. “The shoot was very hard and demanding and it is likely that after a very tiring episode three shoot, this was simply overlooked by an exhausted crew.”
