'Game of Thrones' Creators Reflect on the Final Season Coffee Cup: "I Couldn't Believe It"



"The Last of the Starks" features a scene in which the House Stark allies are celebrating their unexpected victory and a coffee cup appears in the background.

The coffee cup was scrubbed from the episode, but that scene in particular was the subject of a lot of memes, with even the Thrones castmembers casting aspersions on each other over who brought the cup onto the set.

In James Hibberd's upcoming book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon, which chronicles the creation of Game of Thrones from start to finish, Benioff and Weiss open up about the infamous scene:

Benioff said: "I couldn’t believe it,". "When we got the email about it the next day, I honestly thought someone was pranking us[...]I thought, 'There’s no way there’s a coffee cup in there.' Then when I saw it on the TV I was like, 'How did I not see that?'”

Weiss says "I’d seen that shot one thousand times, and we’re always looking at their faces or how the shot sat with the shots on either side of it. [...] Every production that’s ever existed had things like this. But now people can rewind things and everybody is talking to each other in real time. So one person saw the coffee cup, rewound it, and then everybody did."
