Apparently, there’s a Starbucks Cup in The Expanse As Well. It’s not Just Game of Thrones
Coffee obviously is important, precisely what you need first thing in the morning. Especially when you have this whole everyone-is-going-to-die climactic battle ahead of you, or when you are space-trekking in some near future spacecraft. At least this is what TV has taught us.
Recently, HBO failed to edit out a Starbucks coffee cup from the latest episode of Game of Thrones Season 8, which obviously sparked a senseless internet riot. It; however, now turns out that GOT isn’t the only show to have this creative error. In fact, The GOT in space, The Expanse too had once accidentally featured a Starbucks cup in its episode.

Starbucks Cup In The Expanse Show
A cutting-edge similarity was detected by the same keen observers who discovered the link between the two shows,’Game of Thrones’ and ‘Expanse‘. It’s time for some caffeinated gags as both periodical dramas crafted a coincidental, yet accidental display of comedy-of-errors by showcasing a Starbucks cup at their shows.
The Contemporary Error In The Medieval Drama
Game of Thrones, the world-popular fantasy drama back from 300 B.C, is, currently, airing its fifth episode of the last season. As a matter of fact, Social Media posts burst into laughter this Monday, when the fourth episode displayed the post-battle feast scene in the installment “The Last of the Starks.”
“GOT” fans, primarily, spotted the cup just after the episode aired Sunday. The situation, hence, became the trendiest Tweet on Monday morning, It was, however, just a two-second display.

The CLEAN Mistake
It might happen that the cleaning crew has not wiped the table top and the whole scene will then become a show of anachronism. Basically, the popular Starbucks to-go cup was seen lying on the table when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) were celebrating the Night King’s defeat.
HBO Responded Sarcastically
In response to this side-splitting blunder, HBO mocked the situation, releasing the following statement
“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea.”
Whatever be the circumstances, this mistake has benefited the popular latte brand as Starbucks can now promote its coffee as a Medieval addiction.
This is however not the end. Fans from the Sci-fi Drama Expanse are curious to know how a Star-bucks like coffee cup landed in the space.
Starbucks In Space
