Emilia Clarke Reveals Who Left Coffee Cup On Game Of Thrones Set
Who the hell managed to leave a coffee cup right in the middle of shot during one of the scenes?
Yeah, if you were hoping for some more answers about the actual plot of the final season, then you're in the wrong place. No one has - or potentially wants - any more info about that.
However, we would definitely like to know how one of the most famous TV cock-ups in recent history came to pass, and here's the Mother of Dragons to fill us in on the gossip.
In case you've forgotten, the gang were celebrating and partying having finally seen off the Night King and his vast army of reanimated corpses, but among the flagons and drinking vessels someone spotted a paper coffee cup.
That set fans of the show into overdrive questioning how it was allowed to get there.
Basically, Varys did it.

Yep, speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Clarke revealed that Conleth Hill, the actor who plays the shiny-headed eunuch Lord Varys, admitted guilt to her while he was drunk at a glitzy showbiz bash.
She told Fallon: "We had like a party before the Emmys recently, and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys, who's sitting next to me in that scene, he pulls me aside and he's like, 'Emilia, I've got to tell you something. I've got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine!'
"It was his! It was Conleth's coffee cup. He said so."
She continued: "He said he didn't want to say anything at the time because 'the heat was very much on you' and I was like 'what?'
"So that's who I think that did it. Well he told me he did it, but then he might have been drunk."
Well, that would be classic Varys, wouldn't it? Letting someone else take the blame for his mistake, only to own up to it himself well after the fact.
Anyway, there's that mystery wrapped up once and for all.
If you didn't see the coffee cup in the first instance, you're unlikely to ever see it again now. In future re-runs of the show, HBO has made sure they've digitally removed the offending vessel.
It's what they left in that left some viewers cold.
