'Game of Thrones' fans spot another blunder in episode 5 still as Jaime Lannister's hand grows back
'Game of Thrones' fans are unhappy about a lot of things that have happened in season 8 episode 5 and this blunder just adds salt to the wounds
After the Starbucks cup found its place in 'Game of Thrones' season 8 episode 4, fans found another blunder in episode 5 and this one was pretty major. In one of the most emotional scenes of the season, after Jaime and Cersei Lannister reunite, the two are locked in an embrace.
It was overwhelming that the queen who was so certain of her victory just a few minutes ago had to flee with no one around to support her. The emotional weight of the scene distracted many of us, but not everyone as fans found a big editing blunder in what was otherwise a great scene - Jaime's hand.
Jaime lost one of his hands in season 3 after his duel with Brienne of Tarth, who fights for Catelyn Stark. Jaime, who underestimated Brienne, loses the fight and has his hand chopped off by a sellsword of Roose Bolton. When Jaime reaches King's Landing escorted by Brienne, he gets a hand made of gold by ex-maestor Qyburn.
In a still, Jaime's hand that is supposed to be gold is anything but as people spotted his normal hands with no gold fitting in sight. While leaving a Starbucks cup on the table in Winterfell is a big blooper, this one is a major blunder considering the weight the scene held in the episode.
Although an HBO rep told the New York Post, this was not the case and the hand did not appear on air, and that perhaps the image making the rounds was distributed by the digital team and that “it’s still being researched.”
A fan on Twitter wrote, "Jaime's hand really grew back for Cersei, wow his power," a sarcastic commentary on the arc of Jaime and Cersei's romantic relationship. Another fan, Boo Boo the Fool wrote, "The pic of Jaime and Cersei where Jaime has his right hand back is absolutely hilarious and truly symbolic of how little that arc (about how much losing his hand affected him massively as a person) mattered when it came down to it like I just [kisses fingers like an Italian chef]."
