Daenerys Targaryen will take one small skinny caramel cappuccino with two extra shots and whipped cream on top to go please. Make it SCORCHING.

Over the past eight seasons, Game of Thrones has been meticulous in its attention to detail. From the costumes and the set design, right down to the little easter eggs that have been scattered throughout the entire show, Thrones has rarely slipped. Sure, there's been some continuity errors but nothing too glaringly obvious.

Yep, there it is. Right on the table, in clear view of the camera. A whole coffee cup. Just sitting there. That no one thought to move. (Unless it's an easter egg?! What could it mean!?)

So, who's Starbucks is it? So far, no one has claimed the cup but considering its position on the table, there's already two main suspects. Is it Emilia Clarke's? Is it Kit Harington's?! I'd say whoever left it there is getting fired in the morning but...
