Mother of Dragons and Starbucks Secrets Storyteller!
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke clarifies once and for all who is behind this notorious coffee mug. In 2019, the fourth episode of season eight of GoT, entitled “The Last of the Starks,” featured a very misplaced Starbucks trophy in front of Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen.
Clarke revealed in a June 10, 2021 video with theSkimm that her own morning drink of choice isn’t what fans might think. “It’s not Starbucks – spoilers,” Clarke joked before shifting the blame on. “I’ll say it again for the record: wasn’t mine. When I look at you Dan Weiss. ”
So is Clarke hinting that the trophy belonged to Showrunner Weiss? It seems that the secret lives on.
HBO previously quipped in a press release after the episode aired, “The latte that appeared on the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea. ”He is now the art director of the eighth season Hauke Richter allegedly called the situation “so disproportionate” as countless memes appeared in its wake. Even Starbucks tweeted that they were surprised Daenerys “didn’t order a dragon drink.”
The network eventually removed the coffee mug from the episode in May 2019.
